Hello summer friday! Here’s what the weekend looks like.

EATING

An oldie but goodie: my brown butter garden vegetable pasta skillet. And this summer BBQ quinoa salad!

DRINKING

Lemonade frosé for the win! Also craving a gigantic margarita.

MAKING

My strawberry crunch salad while we still have some summer berries. Oh and this lavender vanilla latte ice cream for the weekend. Can’t be beat!

BAKING

These chocolate zucchini cupcakes with avocado fudge frosting. They have vegetables in them!

GRILLING

My caramelized onion grilled focaccia. Oh my word is it heavenly. I want to make it with my grilled spatchcock chicken this weekend.

CRAVING

Salted pretzel s’mores crunch bars. Anything s’mores, really.

LISTENING

To this summer girls trip playlist from a few years ago. Oh my gosh, this is so good!

READING

I’m feeling a little thriller-ish so I’m thinking about starting Such A Quiet Place. Here’s my summer reading list if you’re looking for something good this weekend!

WEARING

Last year I LOVED the freedom moses slides and this year is no different. I’ve never cared for birkenstocks but love these for some reason. They are the perfect outdoor shoes especially when it comes to watering plants and hanging out with the kids. I wear mine nonstop.

SHOPPING

A few things left that I want to pick up at the Nordstrom sale! Definitely have my eye on this blanket, this bag and I’m soooo tempted to get an allsaints leather jacket. Not sure if I will go for it. You can find all of my favorites here.

LOVING

What’s your child’s spiritual age (and yours!)? I love this. Even though I think I will forever feel 17ish, I’ve always felt like my spiritual age is, like, 55. Ha!

BUYING

Um hi, if you want to be insane like me, you could get these adorable pumpkin pillows that sold out instantly last year (I tried to get them last august and they never came back in stock!). As much as I’m not ready for fall AT ALL, I’m making a little exception here for my fall fanatic self.

PACKING

For our michigan vacation soon! I’m a packing nut and work off of lists and basically have everything almost ready to go. But this year it feels like we have to take ten million things because of the baby! My go-to packing bag for basically, well, everywhere is my large mz wallace tote. It fits ALL THE THINGS. I also love the dagne dover totes because they are neoprene and they last forever. I’ve had both of those for ages. A few things I’m taking for the baby that are game changers too: the guava travel crib with the bassinet attachment, the fisher price on the go baby dome and the baby bjorn bouncer (have used it since max & love it!). Should I do a (roadtrip) travel essentials post?!

Today is the last summer fridays post for 2020! It’s been a wacky summer but I’m so glad we kept the summer fridays tradition going. Thanks for being here!

EATING

My September kale salad. This is one of my favorite salads of all time. It’s a mix of late summer and super early fall produce (hello apples) and the flavor and texture can’t be beat.

DRINKING

September sangria!! It is TIME!

MAKING

A hot dog bar for the unofficial summer send off. What are you favorite toppings?

BAKING

These oatmeal baked apples. Have I mentioned how much I love apple season? Okay I’ll stop.

CRAVING

My salted honeycrisp fritters. These are unreal. I’m going to make them over on instagram today too!

LISTENING

To our summer fridays send off playlist! Do you have a favorite one from this summer?

READING

One to Watch! It’s our September book club pick. Loving it!

LOVING

Merritt’s fall capsule wardrobe. I look forward to these every season. Merritt’s style is incredible and timeless, and I also find that she shares such great neutral things that no matter what kind of style you love, her capsule helps. The amount of work she puts into this has to be crazy and I appreciate it so, so much! She also makes an actual capsule wardrobe seem doable to me.

PLANNING

I have the rest of the year’s recipes planned out (if you’ve been reading a while, then you know I work about a month or so ahead) and it feels amazing! It’s probably contributed to my fall feelings. Anything specific you’d like to see, aside from TONS of easy weeknight dinners?!

BURNING

This harvest candle from Target. It makes the entire house smell fantastic!

SHARING

A new video for the zucchini lasagna bolognese! If you haven’t made it yet, it is so wonderful. Definitely my favorite summer meal!

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!
