How is June almost over? Summer weekends are my absolute favorite and I hate how fast they’re flying by. I didn’t make a summer bucket list this year (I do have a Summer Reading List, though!) but I am still trying to soak up as much of summer as possible. This weekend my in-laws are visiting and I’m so excited for them to see the living room/entryway renovation. We have plans on Friday evening but Saturday is all about relaxation! Oh, and good food – but that’s a given. So before we start our last weekend in June, here are my favorites of the week.
Favorite Red, White and Blue: 4th of July Pineapple Sparkler Centerpieces. How fun are these!?!
Favorite Frozen: Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. I’m not quite sure what’s on the menu for Saturday but I can almost guarantee this will be dessert.
Favorite “Appy” Hour: Golden Beet Chips with Spicy Goat Cheese Dip. Yesssss. And the vegetable chips totally balance out the goat cheese dip.
Favorite Daydream: Greece. The pictures take my breath away so I can only imagine what it’s like to actually be there. #bucketlist
Favorite “Drink This Now”: 4 Under-the-Radar French Rosé Regions. Rosé is the perfect summertime wine. (And I think a
glass bottle would go great with those appetizers above.)
Favorite Wake-up: Overnight Oats Banana Split. I love overnight oats. And who wouldn’t want a breakfast that looks like dessert?
Favorite Grilled: Smoky Beer Burgers with Gouda and Mustard-Horseradish Aioli. It isn’t really summer until you’ll grilled a burger.
Favorite Slice: Four Cheese Pizza. Mozzarella, Parmesan, Brie, Ricotta. Need I say more?
Favorite Real Estate Game: Nantucket vs. Martha’s Vineyard. The Nantucket house is my pick (that kitchen!) but I can’t help but lust over the Martha’s Vineyard backyard.
Favorite Spiked: Fresh Raspberry and Gin Slushies. These would be the perfect way to get a party started…
