Friday Things #417
1. These two sat together like this for ages the other morning, and I’m still not quite sure who enjoyed it more 😍
2. The kids are still loving their little grocery store :)
3. Goofy couch snuggles are the best ;-)
4. I’ve seen multiple articles in the last week about morning routines and evening routines. Do you have one? Aside from stuff like brush my teeth, wash my face, and get dressed, it doesn’t go much further! I have been trying to read every night before bed, even if it’s only for 10 minutes.
5. New grocery items in April – have you tried any of these yet?
6. Have you made Danish pastries? This recipe has been very popular recently!
7. Do you have any recipe requests for this summer? What are you looking forward to making or what new things do you want to try?
8. We are all-out obsessed with Yellowstone! We just started season 3 last night and part of me is sad we’re on the last season, but excited that season 4 will be out in a couple of months.
9. AND my husband discovered that you can actually stay on that ranch when they’re not filming! Makes me want to rent an RV and road trip out there ;-) My uncle and cousins have long done annual fishing trips to Montana, and now I can see why they love it so much. It’s gorgeous!
10. TGIF! Duke says hi!
Nihari is actually a royal food. Basically, the word nihari comes from an Urdu word “Nihar” meaning Morning. Most people take nihari for breakfast.
Would love to see some dishes using seasonal summer produce and simple and delicious salad (with dressing recipes). Usual eat lighter during the summer but salads get so boring. Thanks.
I would love some spiralizer recipes. (if you’re into that) I bought one a few weeks ago and we are loving it. We’ve made apple raisin scones, marinara with rutabaga “noodles” and a few other things, but if you have any ideas to add, I’d love to try anything. In regards to “Yellowstone”, we’ve been watching from the beginning and can’t wait to see season 4. We (husband and I) live in Red Lodge Montana, yes, it really is that beautiful here. . .every single day.
Would love a recipe for roasted red pepper crab soup! A local restaurant here in VA has it on their menu and it is delicious!! Still watching for your Costco finds too!!
I’ve been using bloglovin to follow my favorite blogs for years, but looks like the app is no longer in the App Store. Was just wondering how you follow your favorites?
Beautiful pics of your babies as well as furry babies.
Summer recipe requests: new salads/dressings and all things fresh peaches. I’m with blogger below on covid ergh….lbs. Time to get a routine for me and deal with it.
Oh Duke! When did your face get so white? It seems like forever since your picture has been posted! How old is Duke, Michelle? My Golden girl is going to be 7 in October and she is just beginning to get an older Golden look to her face. Her dark eyes are becoming more pronounced, but she really is only getting white around her muzzle. My other Golden girl was just a year old the end of February, so I can really see the difference in between an older and young Golden. Regardless, Duke is a handsome boy.
I have always had an evening routine since childhood that involves reading before bed. It takes my mind to another place and sends me off to sleep. I don’t buy a lot of processed foods but I’d like to try the cauliflower pasta. I must watch Yellowstone.
Michelle, this is my first time commenting but I just have to tell you how happy I am to see your Friday things every week. You have the most beautiful family. I love the pics of your kids and your goldens. You sure make my fridays great. Although my children are grown and my grandchildren are 18 and 15 now I do have a granddog that is also a golden. And although cooking is not my favourite thing to do anymore I do love your recipes and pictures. Have a wonderful weekend all the way from Niagara Falls Canada.
I would like a really good recipe for a caramel cake with caramel icing. An 80+ yo lady I work with has finally retired and moved about an hour away to be closer to family. We were able to visit her once during the pandemic but had to socially distance, wear masks, no hugs. She is like a mother/grandmother/friend all rolled into one and I miss her so. One of her favorite things growing up was her grandmother’s caramel cake but no one has the recipe. I tried making one with a random recipe I got on the internet for her bday a couple of years ago but it was meh… I’d really like a GREAT recipe but most recipes I see are geared towards salted caramel which she says isn’t right. LOL
Oooh I love this challenge (and just adore your description of your relationship!). Are you able to ask her for any details? Was it a one-layer/sheet cake or a layer cake? What type of frosting did it have? Anything else she can remember about it, and I would be happy to give this a shot! :)
I don’t have a recipe, but this is a very good caramel cake. Also very expensive! https://thecakebakeshop.com/products/southern-style-caramel-cake-special-order-only
new recipes? I’ve heard of the “pandemic 15” I guess referring to the weight gain over the past year. For myself it’s more like the “pandemic 20 going on 25″….ugh. I would enjoy some quick, healthy recipes whether snacks, desserts or dinner….in that order. LOL
I’ve watched Yellowstone from the beginning, it’s fabulous! You’ll have to post your thoughts after the season three finale.
For a lighter, fun show, Younger is also soooo good! When I dropped cable I missed the last two years, but it’s in full on Paramount+ so I’m rewatching from the beginning. The final season just came out.
OMG Michelle, I didn’t want to post a direct link to YouTube, but a daily newsletter from The Washington Post has a link to an animal related video every day. Today the video is titled “Golden Retriever Dad Babysits Puppies” It made me think of you immediately.
Have a great weekend!
Oh my gosh, I looked it up, how adorable!! Thank you for sharing! Have a wonderful weekend!
Love your recipes! Any bakes this summer with fresh produce would be great!
Glad you’re enjoying Yellowstone. When you’re done with that, Longmire is another fantastic series, with a gorgeous setting out west. It made me obsessed with visiting Wyoming some day.
Oooh we watched Longmire a couple of years ago, loved that one, too!!
