Hey hey and happy Friday!
Three day weekends can go one of two ways: Relax and kick back, or kick in and get things done. My weekend will be a combo of both. Planting my herb garden will be the getting things done part and escaping to our cabin for some R&R, thinking fondly of those I’ve lost in my life, and doing some good cooking will count as the kick back portion. Frankly, I’m ready for both.
We’ll definitely be grilling up a storm like we did a few nights ago (pic above) when we made:
- This super yummy grilled chicken,
- My favorite easy grilled corn on the cob,
- And my husband’s newest favorite pasta salad.
- And don’t forget my mom’s BEST potato salad which I will def be making.
This week I’ve run out of time to write much as an intro, and it’s likely you’re pretty okay with taking a break from me waxing on, so let’s just get to the reason you’re here and head straight to this week’s list of Friday Faves.
