Summer Fridays, Vol 12.

I hope you’re eating up the best of garden tomatoes right now! Here’s what’s up for the weekend.

EATING

This weekend I want to make my crispy buffalo cauliflower. Maybe my ramen noodle crunch salad too. Also, did you see the 33 weeknight meals I shared for back-to-school season?! Lots of great ones.

DRINKING

Since apple season has arrived, I’m eating alllll the honeycrisps and drinking this honeycrisp crush! Super refreshing.

MAKING

Hot honey pineapple wedges this weekend. The combo of sweet + heat is incredible.

BAKING

Have you ever made these black plum tarts with brown butter?! I live for a good puff pastry meal (there are multiples in my next book!) and this is a great treat.

CRAVING

My grilled peach and corn pizza. If you haven’t tried it yet, you must! Other than that, I’m really craving fall flavors. No, I don’t want summer to end, but with so much unpredictability in the next few months, I’m just craving a nostalgic and familiar taste!

LISTENING

To the best Nancy Meyers movie playlist. These songs just give me all the warm and fuzzy feelings.

READING

The Perfect Marriage. I found this via people sharing it on tiktok. It sucked me in right away and is really good!

WATCHING

I am rewatching The West Wing. I mean, it’s just the best. Have you been here long enough to remember when I watched it for the first time?!

LOVING

Absolutely love these 6 things Mel Robbins does when she wakes up anxious.

SHARING

A new video for my creamed spinach mac and cheese! This is a great way to sneak in all those greens.

SHOPPING

I was influenced this week by TIBAL to buy this foot measuring thing for the kids. Um. WHY have I never thought of this before?! I used to get the kids’ feet measured at Nordstrom every few months (it’s crazy how often their size can change) but since we haven’t gone anywhere, I’ve been stumped on buying them shoes. This is brilliant and much more affordable that I expected!
