We made it to Friday. Woot woot! We have a busy, busy (and fun!) weekend on tap but I’m hoping that Sunday ends with a relaxing summer evening at home with no one but Big Guy after his week in California. Technically summer is coming to an end with the start of school on Monday but summer won’t end in my mind until football starts. (Though the weather won’t feel like summer is over until October.) Where did this summer go?!?!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you back here next week.
Favorite Drool: BAE: Bacon Avocado Egg Sandwich. Holy moly. That cheese!!!! This brunch sandwich is evvvvverything.
Favorite In Season: Classic Caprese Salad. Tomatoes are at their absolute best right now and there’s also a bounty of basil in gardens everywhere.
Favorite Flavors: Lemon Basil Shortbread Cookies. I heart lemon. And the basil infusion sounds glorious.
Favorite Sweet Treat: Fudgy 100 Calorie Brownies. Because sometimes you just need a bite of chocolate.
Favorite List: The Best Sushi Restaurants in Every State in America. I would LOVE to work my way through this list. Though I have to disagree with the pick for NC…Mura is my absolute favorite.
Favorite Appy Hour: How to Make a Next-Level Cheese Plate. Cheese plates make me so happy. Especially with a glass of wine.
Favorite Sandwich: Grilled Blue Cheese with Honey and Walnut Pesto. Salty, sweet, luxurious, buttery, nutty. It has it all.
Favorite Cookies: These New Girl Scout Cookies Might be Better than Thin Mints. Thin mints are one of my favorites. But I’d be willing (twist my arm) to try the S’mores cookie and Chocolate Graham Cracker cookie.
Favorite Cocktail: Crushed Blackberry Moscow Mules. Incredibly refreshing on a sweltering day like today.
