The Weekend Edit: April 9, 2021
Hey, everyone! How was your week? We had spring break, but our family did not go anywhere. We chose to stay home and clean the house. Guess how much of our house got cleaned? So little we should have just gone on vacation. We should’ve known better!
Anyway, here are a few links I’ve come across the past couple weeks that caught my interest. Enjoy!
Recipe of the Week:
Tuscan Chicken Linguine: We made this for my in-laws when they came over a few weeks ago after becoming fully vaccinated and we had it again this week. We used this recipe for the Tuscan heat spice blend: 4 parts basil (dried flakes), 2 parts rosemary (dried flakes), 2 parts oregano (dried flakes), 2 parts garlic powder, 1 part “low heat” cayenne pepper, 1 part ground fennel.

“ The theory says that when infants form secure attachments, they’re also forming the capacity for relationships in the future. “. Our visit wasn’t near long enough but the hugs filled my soul. Ada watched me, cautious and curious. Fiona snuggled in with comfortable warmth. Good to be opening up again.
I always have grand intentions to deep clean my house every weekend. So far, I haven’t done it yet (though I do clean rooms).
