Friday’s Fave Five

It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week
with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.

Here we are at the last FFF of January already. We’re almost 1/12 of the way through 2022! Here are some favorites of this week.

1. Take-out, always a favorite. We don’t usually get it all weekend, but it was nice to have the weekend “off.” I requested McAlister’s Deli Friday night—we hadn’t had it in a while. Then Jim suggested Chick-Fil-A Saturday night and wanted pizza Sunday night.

2. One organizing project done. I have four areas I wanted to work on even before Christmas, but then didn’t get to in the busyness of the holidays. I tackled one on Saturday. We have a short bookcase in our bedroom where I put books I’ve bought, received as gifts, or have read but haven’t decided what to do with yet. I sorted through and dusted all of them, filled one box to give away, found places on other shelves for some, and stacked the remaining unread ones in a more orderly fashion.

3. Dinner and a visit. Jason and Mittu brought dinner over one night when Jim was away.

4. Catching up with a good friend. One of my dearest and longest-known friends and I had a long phone conversation this week. It was so nice to have that extended time rather than a text or Facebook comment here and there (though those are nice, too).

5. Frito bars. The name may sound strange, but the sweet and salty combination was really good, and there were very easy to make. I halved the recipe for an 8×8 pan this time, but I look forward for making it for the rest of the family sometime.

Is it bad that three of my five favorites this week involved food? πŸ˜€

How was your week?

  1. I was so curious, I had to take a look at that recipe. It sounds wonderful, and so easy.

    January is a good time for organizing, isn’t it? I’ve been working my way through the den, going through bookcases and cupboards.

    It’s so nice to have a weekend off from cooking. It gives me enthusiasm to try new recipes when it’s time to cook again.

    Have a nice weekend, Barbara.

  2. IT IS NOT BAD! Just wanted to get that clear πŸ˜‰
    #4, though, sounds like a wonderful gift in the week. I love conversations with good friends like that.

    Love that feeling of bringing order (finally) to an area that’s needed. Why am I not surprised that it’s books in your case?

  3. Good for you on achieving some of your organizing goals. That recipe looks good. Thanks for sharing. Will have to give it a try. Glad you had a good week. Enjoy the weekend. πŸ™‚

  4. ok….I wanna love those frito bars and do want to bake them BUT corn syrup….UGH…so BAD For our bodies. If I can find a healthier replacement I wonder what it would be?? I’ll have to do some research. And i wonder if I can replace refined sugar with raw sugar?? I just love fritos and rarely have them….cause….processed…but wow…they sure sound amazing!! I”m gonna have to see if there’s a healthier version somehow!

    OOH..a weekend off from cooking…that sounds like a HUGE blessing to me!!

    I love organizing and glad you got to organize your bookshelves. That must have been a a good feeling!


  5. Organizing is a calming activity for me. I think I need to organize some stuff tomorrow. I most likely will be inside gazing at the snowdrifts.
    Not having to cook is truly a blessing. And having dinner brought with Timothy for company would be a double win.
    Have a good weekend!

  6. How fun to have the weekend off from cooking! I need to plan that from time to time. Sometimes it happens, but I’d like to plan it ahead of time so I can look forward to it. πŸ™‚

    Frito Bars? Oh my! Looking up that recipe now. I have to admit I’m a corn chip addict. lol

  7. Though I love to cook a weekend off once in awhile is awesome! Good for you for getting to one of your organizing projects. I have a whole list and just can’t seem to get to it. You’ve motivated me.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
