The Weekend Dish: 8/23/2014

It’s the weekend! Do you have anything fun planned? I am looking forward to tackling some new kitchen projects and otherwise enjoying a relaxing couple of days. I am totally stunned that next weekend is already Labor Day weekend. Where did the summer go?! It feels like just yesterday that it was the first week of May and we were splashing around in the ocean. Time sure did fly the last few months! I hope you enjoy this last full week of summer!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
