Weekend Thoughts / 27

Last sunset at the old place

 

How’s your weekend going? Teddy and I spent yesterday at the lake for his brother’s engagement party, and it was so fun! I rode a jet ski for the first time, and went tubing. I’m a little beaten up and bruised, but it was really nice to get away and spend time on the water!

 

Here are my favorite links of the week:

 

1. These DIY Pencil Sneakers from Lovely Indeed are the cutest back-to-school project!

 

2. We’ve barely moved into our new apartment and I’m already planning the menu for our first cookout. I’m thinking these oven-fried green tomatoes would get along really well with ribs and lemonade!

 

3. Jeanine’s peach and plum cobbler seems like the perfect summer recipe.

 

4. I found this story about a writer’s life changing encounter with Jacques Pepin via Eat This Poem, and it reminded me why I love food writing so much.

 

5. Also via Nicole’s list from Eat This Poem, I loved Molly’s list of her favorite cookbooks and all the photos of dog-eared pages. So great! There’s a little nook in my new kitchen where my favorite/ most-used cookbooks live, and I think it’d be fun to copy Molly’s idea write a post about them.

 

6. Stephanie’s photos of her meal at Avec in Chicago look amazing!

 

7. These orange zest scones from A Beautiful Mess remind me a lot of my Dad’s famous lemon-craisin scones. (I’ve been sneaking orange zest in my scones lately… just don’t tell my Dad!)
8. I’ve been listening to this song on repeat this weekend.

 

I’m a little short on words today, so I’m going to get some patio furniture and drink mimosas on the porch. It sounds like the perfect way to spend a Sunday to me! I hope you guys have a relaxing day and a good week!
