This is going to be a different Saturday Upside post. I have not posted since last week, and I have several things to share. I will not be doing my traditional Saturday Upside post, but I will put links at the bottom for yours! Please still share this week if you are able!
I will not be cooking as much for a while, because my husband is on a tour out of the country with Hollywood Film orchestra. I still enjoy cooking for myself and guests, but I don’t feel as much like taking pictures, and my leftovers last me a lot longer. 🙂 I miss him a lot, but love our Skype dates! We took this picture the day before he left.
Spoiler alert: many pictures in this phone were taken with a cell phone. I know that a cell phone does not equal photography, but I still like using it. 😉
I got some great samples of Twinings tea in my mailbox this week, and loved making some Chai while babysitting my nephew.
I have discovered that it’s not as much fun cleaning my kitchen from top to bottom when there is no husband to come home to it! I have to brag about it to him over Skype. It still gives me the little push I need to keep a clean home, though. 🙂
A. Didn’t take a picture
B. Didn’t follow the recipe 100%. I actually put mine in burrito shells instead of hoagie buns. (It was still delicious, though! I definitely recommend the recipe!) I shared these with my younger sister and her boyfriend, and we affectionately named my version “Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Burritos,” which is actually a bit of a tongue twister. 😉
This week I also tried my regular egg salad, but with pickles added. I’d give it two thumbs up!
I also enjoyed making breakfast for supper with my younger sister! It’s fun to cook with others, although she did comment “Your kitchen is really, really small.” Thanks, sis, I didn’t know that. 😉
I tried putting frozen blueberries in that last pancake, but it was a few too many, I think. Our cornmeal pancakes were fabulous, and I liked the Johnsonville Italian sausage patties I made (and cut in half) with this meal! I had coupons for them a while back, and they work great for “breakfast” meals. The syrup is homemade brown sugar syrup that I made from my family recipe (shared by my sister) because my maple syrup is almost gone. This syrup recipe also comes highly recommended!
The reason cell phones don’t equal photography. Hello, blurry!
I visited a friend recently and went thrift store shopping! I haven’t really done any clothes shopping in about 6 months, and it was fun to pick up these shirts! The one underneath is pink and white striped, and I don’t think it really matches the plaid. However, I like them both so much that I have to wear them together.
I would still love to hear everyone’s Saturday Upsides this week! Just post your “Saturday Upside” on your blog with my “Saturday Upsides” picture and a link back here, comment on my blog with a link to your post, and I’ll add a link to your blog at the bottom of mine.
Everyone’s posts will be different; please use this “Saturday Upsides” post to share your own unique thoughts, picture/s, and bright sides! I’d love to see posts all weekend, not just Saturday.
