What’s cooking with you? I just made grilled sausage sandwiches for everyone for dinner. They were so, soo, sooo delicious. Even better, it was really more assembling than cooking because I grilled the sausage over the weekend and then threw everything into the toaster oven.
Here’s the stuff you’ve gotta see this week, starting with myself!
I launched a 31-day series last week called Crush Your Food Costs. Each day in October I’m sharing a tip, recipe or strategy to help you crush your food costs. Go here to see each day’s post.
Halloween is coming so soon! Maybe you need to make these spooky ghost cake balls.
Do you know how to spot a reliable recipe on the Internet? I thought I did but I had a bust over the weekend. It was a recipe for slow-cooker potatoes and let’s just say, they went to the chickens. I’m going to read this and so should you if you like to try recipes from blogs.
Look at how cute these glittered pumpkin placecards are? Go here for a tutorial.
I’ve been listening to a lot of blogging podcasts lately but for a break, I tune into Lore, “each episode of Lore looks into a uniquely scary tale and uncovers the truth behind it.” Lore is perfect for Halloween.
I tend not to share feel-good stories here because I want to make you laugh, not leak from your eyeballs. But this story about a burned baby who finds the nurse who cared for her decades ago is a wonderful tale about the power of touch to heal and comfort.
When Mr. 12 came into the world, I had a difficult labor. When the baby went into distress and the nurses were preparing me for an emergency c-section, I had a student nurse by my side who held my hand and rubbed my arm. My husband was there of course, but I dispatched him to go call our families to let them know what was happening. They live in a different part of the country. And of course, at one point, it was just medical personnel in the room. So, the nurse’s laying on of hands, was really a balm. I was worried they wouldn’t get the baby out in time. I was worried I was going to die on the table. Her touch calmed me and made me feel so much better. I didn’t see her again after surgery and I really wanted to tell her how much she helped me. I regret not tracking her down through the administration.
What else should be on this gotta see list?
Have a great week,
