Hey, y’all! Welcome to this week’s Sunday Supper. It’s a weekly opportunity to share a few extra recipes that might inspire you for the upcoming week and a chance to share a little bit about what happened in our world the past week. Here we go…
We started the week with news that Heather had to have carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve transposition surgery. She’s been having trouble for a while and knew surgery would eventually have to happen; we just didn’t expect it to happen so quickly. Regardless, the stars quickly aligned for her to be able to have the surgery and take leave for the recovery, so we spent Friday taking care of that. She’s doing well, but of course, prayers are certainly appreciated.
Over at the Chinaberry House, framing continues and the roof is starting to take shape. They’ve even started framing the new test kitchen. I’m so ready to get back over there and give y’all an update via Instagram Stories, so stay tuned.
In other news, the amazing folks at Simply Southern have asked me to return for another season and we begin filming next week! We’ve got 12 episodes to shoot, so I’ll be mostly tied up with that, but will still be jumping on social media to say hi! I hope to also share a few Instagram Stories as we go through the week, so be sure you’re following me over there for that, too.
Since Heather will be home this week recovering, I’ve decided to make a few of her favorite dishes on Sunday so that we can have leftovers throughout the week. It also makes for much easier suppers as with the filming schedule, this week will be pretty busy!
I know whenever I’m feeling a little under the weather, comfort food is what I crave and it doesn’t get much more comforting that a big ol’ casserole dish filled with Chicken Spaghetti. And y’all, there’s a reason this is the most popular recipe on the site… it’s delicious! The recipe makes quite a bit, so it’s perfect for making a few meals off of.
I’m also going to whip up a jar of my Sweet and Tangy Mason Jar Salad Dressing to have in the fridge for salads to go along with it all week.
And when it comes to dessert, I’m going to make Heather’s absolute favorite – Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie. It only calls for a handful of ingredients and is peanut butter perfection. It’s rich, too, so a little slice goes a long way!
And y’all need to check out this amazing Berry Watermelon Fruit Salad from Stacey over at Southern Discourse! How beautiful is that thing??
As we look at the week ahead, I want to encourage you to be kind and to choose your words carefully. This past week, I found so many negative and rude comments on social media, that it just hurt my heart. For many folks, I feel like social media has slowly eroded the filter between their brains and their mouths and they don’t give much thought to the things they’re saying. Keep in mind that the person on the other side of that screen might be fighting a battle you know nothing about. A little kindness goes a long way. Let’s see the best in people. My rule of thumb is if I wouldn’t say it to that person’s face, I’m not going to say it on a keyboard either. It all boils down to kindness.
Y’all have a great week!
