Happy Easter Weekend!
Today is Good Friday – a day of both mourning and hope. We mourn that our brokenness put Jesus on the cross, but have hope knowing that He is alive, and accomplished the incredible gift of salvation through His sacrifice. It’s the most selfless love the world has ever known, and it’s given freely to us, broken humanity. Pretty humbling.
And then there’s the sillier side of the Easter Weekend, which meshes perfectly with my dorky sense of humor. You’re welcome for this (if you haven’t seen it already):

And from the archives here at R+H, I’m dusting off this old post on cold remedies because I came down with a stupid cold yesterday. Boo humbug. Optimist that I am, however, I did manage to find a silver lining to my kleenex box companion. Check it out on Instagram and judge my weirdness with your own two eyes.
On the kitchen agenda for this weekend:
- Another batch of the Spelt Banana Muffin recipe I developed this week. It’s delish! If I can get them to be a little fluffier, I’ll share the recipe soon.
- This Potato Leek Soup from the archives here at R+H.
Soon enough it won’t really be soup weather anymore. I love a good pot of soup… but I love summer more, so I’m not too broken up about it. This weekend: Potato Leek Soup. A month from now? We’ll be BBQ’ing up everything in sight and slapping a side of fresh local veg on every plate. Oh, mercy. I’m salivating. I have such a crush on food. Yummaaaaaaahhhhh.
Ok, before this devolves into something embarrassing, let’s end it there.
