Friday Favorites and Book Reviews: 3/16/18

Good Morning. We’ve been stuck at home all week with a yucky virus that made its way through both kids. Thankfully everyone seems to be on the mend so I’m definitely looking forward to getting out this weekend and enjoying the warmer weather. We plan to start building garden beds in the backyard as I have high hopes this is the year I finally get a green thumb.

Speaking of green, I promised Scottie we would do something fun for St. Patrick’s Day since she missed the festivities at school. Please send any fun ideas my way. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

My favorite girl scout cookie gets a healthy makeover.

20 Plant-Based Dinner Recipes
Every single one of these looks fantastic.

I saw these vegetarian sloppy joe’s in my Instagram feed and knew I needed to give them a try.

With our long flight last week to Whistler and being home all week with sick kiddos I’ve been able to fly through some books.

The first one I finished is Little Fires Everywhere.The author does an incredible job creating each character and giving the reader a very vivid picture of what they’re like.The book starts off slow but hang in there because it really develops into a great story.

My book club is meeting this morning to talk about A Wrinkle In Time. I can’t believe I’ve never read this classic until now, and I plan to reread it again with my kids one day. This is a timeless novel that offers enjoyment to both children and adults and there are many valuable lessons to be taken from it.

Lastly, I read Sing, Unburied, Sing. Based off the reviews I realize I’m probably in the minority when I say, I really didn’t care for this book. I can’t deny that the writing is beautiful but I didn’t feel there was much of a plot to drive this book along. The book is told from different characters perspectives, including ghosts, and sadly that’s when the book really lost me.


Please leave any book recommendations you have in the comments section. One can never have too many 🙂

    I clicked on the link for the 20 Plant Based Meals, and you were so right. They look delicious. I just checked out the Minimalist Baker’s cookbook from the library this week because people have been raving all of the Internet about how great her recipes are. I can’t wait to try them!
