Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. I don't know about you but I'm ready to look for some favorite blessings, and it won't be the weather on this list! Someone forgot to tell the Canadian weather forecasters that it is spring. Spring has sprung so far ahead that we've yet to find it. This has been one long winter even for us Southern Albertans who usually get plenty of warm chinook winds to help us get through winter. But if I look there are always blessings to be found no matter the weather. Will you join me this week? Guidelines are here if you are new.
1. Rediscovering a favorite perfume. I love certain scents and there was one I haven't worn in a long time, Georgio Sensi. Sadly I found out it's been discontinued but I'll certainly enjoy every drop I have left.
2. Out of the mouths of babes. My dayhome kidlets have provided plenty of funny comments for me this week. Some of the things they think of to say just crack me right up. Laughter is good medicine and they have provided a lot of it this week.
3. The Gift that kept giving. For Christmas I came upon Amazing Clubs and decided to take a chance and ordered my hubby 6 months worth of the Jerky Club. The last week of every month he is shipped 3 bags of different gourmet jerkies. He has loved this gift. For six months in a row it's a gift he looks forward to arriving in the mail. And he even shares. Score on that gift idea!
4. Strawberries. Specifically strawberries dipped in sour cream and then brown sugar. Oh my. A heavenly dessert, for sure.
A super easy, super delicious dinner put together with a side hot veggies. Oh my, it was sooooo good. Hubby stood at the stove after dinner and finished off every ravioli in the pot and I'm sure I might have seen him dip a finger to get a drop or two of sauce in the bottom. Maybe. It comes with a herb packet that the instructions say to use if you put olive oil on ravioli. Because I was using the cream sauce and not olive oil, in a stroke of genius, I decided to use it on the veggies with just a small slosh of extra virgin olive oil (cooked brocolli, cauliflower, carrot combo). Oh my goodness. It was good. And then wanting to live on the edge, I sprinkled a little on top of ravioli/cream sauce on my plate. Delicious. I got the ravioli at Costco in the freezer section, just in case you were wondering.
Well hopefully you are somewhere where spring has sprung and flowers are starting to poke their noses out of the soil.
What were your favorite blessings this week?
