Happy last weekend of summer / first weekend of September! Whaaaaaaat?!

I literally cannot believe we are here already; it feels like just yesterday that Joseph had his last day of school in May and a few days later we were celebrating my cousin’s wedding. And here in a blink, we had parent orientation for Joseph’s new year of school which starts next week and we’re staring at Labor Day weekend. Yowza!

Do you have anything fun planned for the holiday weekend? I hope you have a blast, stay safe, and eat amazing food!

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!
