Happy Friday! Was it a wet and stormy week in your neck of the woods this week too? We got a TON of rain and thunderstorms this week which made us suuuuuper nervous about flooding in our basement (#homeownerproblems) but luckily we came out dry! We don’t have any big plans this weekend except for some serious packing/meal planning for our trip…we leave in TWO WEEKS! So crazy. Here are my favorites from the week…have a great weekend!
Favorite Healthy Way To Start the Day: Peanut Butter Honey Banana Muffins from A Kitchen Addiction. I’ve been so bad at planning out my meals for breakfast and lunch lately and desperately need to make these so I have something quick, healthy, and satisfying when I’m running out the door in the morning!
Favorite S’Mores Dessert of the Week: Chocolate S’Mores Pudding Cake from Inside BruCrew Life. Seriously obsessed with anything and everything ‘S’Mores’ related and this S’Mores Pudding Cake takes the cake this week!
Favorite Meal on the Grill: Grilled Steak Flatbread with Chimichurri Sauce from Life Tastes Good. I’ve been really into chimichurri sauce lately (recipe coming oh-so-soon!) and am loving it on this grilled steak flatbread!
Favorite Non-Grill Meal: Cheesy Bacon Tortellini Skillet from Mostly Homemade Mom. Sometimes around this time of year I get so grill-happy that I forget about wonderful things like casseroles and pasta. Thankfully this ooey gooey bacony tortellini dish will not let me forget!
Favorite Burger Side: Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Cilantro Dip from Food Faith and Fitness. I’ve been searching high and low for the secrets to getting crunchy baked sweet potato fries and Taylor has finally cracked the code!
Favorite Plain ‘N Simple But Oh So Good Dessert: Fudgey Cocoa Brownies from Chocolate with Grace. She describes them as rich and fudgey. I’m in.
Favorite Burger Week Burger: Chili Cheese Tot Burger from A Zesty Bite. Did you know it’s National Burger Week according to NoshOn.It? Did you also know you can put chili cheese and tots on a burger? Mind officially blown.
Favorite So Cute I could Just Die Post: 61 Times Golden Retrievers Were So Adorable You Could Cry Post from BuzzFeed.
