Happy Saturday and (maybe?) holiday weekend!

Are you celebrating the 4th of July this weekend? Waiting until Wednesday? We’re holding out until Wednesday since both of our families are out of town this weekend.

BUT! Today IS a special day… it’s Duke’s fifth birthday! We’ll give him a special treat and sing to him :) Otherwise, I’ll just be hibernating in my air conditioning because it’s insanely hot and I cannot stand summer once it gets much higher than 80, ugh.

What do you have planned?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
