The Weekly Mix

Flower Necklace

Happy Friday! I’m going to keep today’s Weekly Mix short as my parents are visiting us from out of town this weekend. Confession: I’m still recovering from eating my way through Columbus, Ohio last week. I was seriously blown away by the food scene in that city! There is a lot happening. Are any of you from there?

I’ll be sharing a recap, as well as a mini food city guide, in the coming weeks. But really….we ate so much food. It was so intense that I got home on Thursday and raided my fridge of any and all vegetables.

In case you didn’t see them, I shared this dreamy chorizo hash eggs Benedict (one word: cilantro hollandaise) recipe earlier in the week and a riff on my mom’s tuna pasta complete with the latest recipe video. I hope you’ll get a chance to check them out. Also, if you have any fall recipe requests, please send them my way!

Succulent on Table

Here are a few things I’m loving this week: 

  • How and why to start a dinner club.
  • These eggplant meatballs have my name written all over them.
  • If you’re looking for a weekend baking project, these tahini chocolate chip cookies look phenom!
  • Pumpkin. How are you feeling about it? I might have to cave soon and bake up a batch of these pumpkin espresso muffins. My family goes crazy over these.
  • If you can’t stand the idea of anything pumpkin yet, ignore the internet right now and make any of these late summer tomato recipes.
  • If you’ve ever wondered why onions make you cry
  • Ok, admit it. Who else wants the new cellular Apple Watch? ??
  • Feeling very inspired by Michael’s beautiful plant-filled balcony. Goals for next summer.
  • Tasty mocktails for the weekend!
  • We’ve been making a conscious effort to keep our phones out of the bedroom at night and I have to say, it has been so great for our quality of sleep and bedtime routine. This sound machine is my new favorite thing. I know this isn’t my usual writing subject, but I’m going to share a post on this soon!
  • Busting out my slow cooker this week for this Greek chicken.
