Is it REALLY the last weekend of August? That seems absurdly impossible because the 4th of July was just, like, two weeks ago, right!? While time continues to hurtle along, I’m enjoying the fact that the temperature never even hit 70 yesterday and on my 10-day forecast there is not a single high above 76… my weather nirvana. I’ll be over here sipping hot chocolate and curled up in my fleece blanket, ha!

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!

Growing up, my mom often made those rice packets with different flavors (you know which ones I’m talking about?) as a side dish for dinner, and my favorite was always the mushroom version. HELLO! I can now make my very own homemade mushroom rice!

Chocolate zucchini bread is a superb way to use up that zucchini!

Have a delicious weekend!
