I’ve been known to make a Summer Bucket List but this year I decided against setting myself up for failure and decided to just make a Summer Reading List. (Which, by the way, I only have one book left and it’s currently being shipped to my door step.) With August only a few days away, I find myself creating a list of things I want to accomplish in August. Funny thing is, they’re all food or drink. I’m sure none of you are surprised. The list isn’t long because I’m trying to be realistic – there are only so many days I have to cook between now and my birthday.
Lemon bars have made an appearance on Friday Favorites more than once. That means they need to happen.
I already have plans for when this is happening. This sparks from a bottle of wine from SoCo last year that I was encouraged to age until August. And with that bottle, a burger was recommended. Maybe this one or even this one.
Maggie and I talked about spicy margaritas a few weekends ago and now I must have one before the summer comes to an end. And I think Maggie needs to be around for the cocktail sippin’.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Another recent craving. I’m talking chicken thighs with thick, sweet but spicy barbecue sauce. And corn as a side dish would be perfect.
