Well hello there August, how did you get here so fast?!

I feel like we were just at Joseph’s end-of-year school picnic, thinking about all of the fun things we were going to do over the summer, and now here we are… a couple of weeks until vacation, then we get back and are thrust right into school orientation and first days, etc. These days just fly!

How are you spending the first weekend of August? I hope you have some fun and/or relaxing plans up your sleeve!

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!

I do love some pepperoni and/or salami in my pasta salad, but if you don’t, check out this marinated vegetarian pasta salad!

I have a bag of frozen salmon in the freezer, so I’m putting this on our menu ASAP >> BBQ salmon bowls with mango avocado salsa

Absolutely obsessed with this blueberry basque cheesecake.
