Weekly Pinterest

What I made this week, thanks to Pinterest.

I don't know why I never thought to use frozen Cool Whip instead of marshmallows in hot chocolate.  Hearts make everything better.  (My husband likes it in his coffee, too!)

I baked a ham earlier in the week, and wanted to find a way to use the bone.  This soup was a great alternative to split pea.

By the middle of the week it was too snowy and cold for me to venture out to the grocery store.  Making do with what I had I hand, I make slow cooker spaghetti sauce.  Definitely a great alternative to a jar of store bought, but not too exciting. Next time I'll add some Italian sausage to kick it up a little.  (But the meat free version will be perfect for Fridays during Lent!)

I also made a version of garlic bread to go with it.  It was good, and I really liked the cheese on it.  But...the original recipe called for an entire stick of butter.  Uh, either that's a typo or the recipe's author is really crazy about butter, because I used less than half a stick, and I thought I was going overboard slathering it on.  Try it.  Maybe I'm way off.

And you all read Ashley's blog, right?  Her video today was so incredibly beautiful.  Grab your Kleenex.  Watch it.  Choose joy.

And if you'd like to follow my pins, you can find me here.
