Wow, what a week! We had pretty much the first real week of summer weather here in Minnesota and I. Am. LOVING IT! I can’t wait to soak up every second of it this weekend, too. But first, here are my favorites from the week!
Favorite Summer Salad: This Grilled Zucchini Ribbon and Kale Salad will come in handy when my CSA box is overflowing with greens and zucchini.
Favorite Reminds-Me-Of-My-Childhood Dessert: Snickers Caramel Apple Salad. Did you eat this growing up?! Seeing it makes me think of childhood summer barbecues. I mean, it’s a joke that it’s called a “salad” but with a bunch of apples it in, it’s pretty much like eating a couple of servings of fruit, right?
Favorite Summer Hairstyle: The French Braid Bun. I have 2 different hairsyles: ponytail or straightened, and I’m getting pret-ty sick of it. This tutorial gives me hope that even I can have a stylish updo!
Favorite Oh. My. Gawd.: Seriously, I’m drooling. I need a reason to make these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cheesecakes, stat.
Favorite Burger Gone Healthy: These curry veggie burger look incredible. That sauce. The mango chutney. YUM!
Favorite Accessory: I just love this Aquamarine Necklace. So simple yet elegant. Aquamarine is my birthstone which pretty much solidifies my need for this necklace.
Favorite Festive Drink: I think a batch (or two) of this Star Spangled Sangria is in order for the 4th of July, don’t you?
Favorite Sammie: Grilled Asparagus, Prosciutto, and Mozzarella Panini. Um, yes. Just yes.
