Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Are you hanging out with me and still get Great Food? If so, you just peeked at the newest member of the family. We adopted her from the same orphanage where we found Oscar two years ago. She is 4 years old and we really love her.
Great Food is the key?
on the blog, This week: Slow-cooked baked beans filled with bacon and beef, sweetened with molasses, and then slow-cooked until thick and sweet. If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time at all, you may notice that I rarely mention anything “the best”. These beans? They are really that good!
Sweet and juicy with plenty of real peach flavor and just the right touch of cinnamon, this is the last homemade peach recipe you’ll ever need. This Southern plum is filled with fresh peaches and then topped with a generous cinnamon sugar crust that can be buttery and flaky while never getting soggy, even after a day or two in the fridge.
what I’m trying: This week’s Tuscan chicken pasta caught my eye, and it looks delicious!
my favorite thing This week is this detangling brush. This brush is incredible! I’ve been using the wet brush for years now and this brush makes it a shame. I love that. The stylist used it on my hair the other day and ordered it right away. I was thrilled to learn that it was the same price as the other one. It works fine, I was expecting it to be 3-4x as much.
What I watch: The honest thief. Liam Neeson did a great job as a reformed bank robber who turned himself in, only to be overtaken by two corrupt FBI agents. (I’m not spoiling anything here, this is in amazon hype.) It’s a free watch on Amazon right now and I give it two thumbs up.
What I read: Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. I think I might drop the Hercules Poirot series. These books have been recommended to me many times, but I simply cannot access them. Should I keep trying?? Does anyone else have trouble getting into these books at first and then falling in love with the series? and eating Great Food too.

I wish you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
