FRI-YAY! For some reason this week has felt incredibly long. I thought Sunday was Monday and that just continued all.week.long. But it’s finally Friday and the weekend is within sight. Our weekend plans include a date night, lunch with Big Guy’s sisters, perhaps some pool time and simply relaxing. I hope you have something fun planned for this warm, summer weekend. Here are my favorites from the week:
Favorite Summer: Grilled Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad with Chimichurri. I’m pretty sure I could live off salads similar to this on during the warm months of summer.
Favorite Lightened-Up: Healthy Gluten-Free Lemon Bars. These are happening ASAP. I’m obsessing over the almond flour crust.
Favorite Tip: How to Freeze Zucchini. I can never, ever use all the zucchini that comes out of our garden. I love giving some away but I hate when I have so much it goes bad. This is my new solution!
Favorite In Season: Easy Cheesy Zucchini Roll-Ups. Speaking of zucchini, here’s another way to use up all the garden bounty. That cheese, though.
Favorite Salty and Sweet: Saltine Cracker-Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Don’t twist my arm. I absolutely adore this combo.
Favorite Toppings: Grilled Burrata Pizza with Crispy Prosciutto and Fried Basil. Y’all – I love burrata. The creaminess is unreal. That paired with crispy, salty prosciutto and crunchy basil sounds insane. Simple but insane.
Favorite Unexpected: Summery Chipotle Corn Chowder. I know, I know. HOT SOUP? I get it. It’s 90 degrees outside and the last thing you probably want is soup. But this one sounds so good I might have to make a sacrifice and eat dinner in my bathing suit.
Favorite Ice Cold: Frozen Mint Lemonade. How refreshing! I think I’d add a little gin or vodka for a kick.
