Plans this weekend revolve around keeping cool in this summer heat wave. Ways to stay cool: go to the pool and stay IN the pool; staying home and cooking epic summer meals; or going out to lunch where the AC is blasting and cool drinks are flowing.
So while I’m trying to not think about the heat – here are my favorites from the week!
Favorite Sunday: Strawberry Pizza with Bacon and Caramelized Onions. We don’t have many plans set in stone this weekend (see above) however, “pizza Sunday” hasn’t happened in a couple of weeks so I’m thinking that needs to happen.
Favorite Craving: Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies. These would be worth turning on the oven. Salty. Sweet. CHIPS IN COOKIES!
Favorite Dream House: Katie Lee’s Hampton House is For Sale. Rarely do I find a home in which I like everything. Until now. Everything about this house is perfection. Except the price tag.
Favorite Dinner Party: Go To Summer Menu – Bo Ssam Dinner Party. Don’t let the name turn you away – it’s basically slow roasted pork that gets turned into lettuce wraps with ALL the toppings. Delicious, right?
Favorite Appetizer: Skillet Cheesy Corn Dip. Would it be bad to eat this as diner? Asking for a friend.
Favorite Summer: Loaded Caprese Grilled Cheese. Thick sourdough bread, melted mozzarella, fresh tomato and garlic sauce, and herbaceous pesto. I can’t deal.
Favorite Food for Thought: Marriage Isn’t About Your Happiness. Because the more we give, the better we become. Real love is not self-seeking, and it will always cost you.
Favorite Weeknight Dinner: Chipotle Black Bean Roasted Veggie Enchilada Casserole. I need some Mexican-inspired food in my life. This could do the trick.
Favorite Tips and Tricks: How to Print Mix in Your Home. I’m obsessed with Gray Malin’s photography and I dream of owning one of his prints.
Favorite Cocktail: Rosé and Watermelon Sunshine Spritzers. The best thing on a hot day is an ice cold drink.
