Recipes for the Weekend & A GIVEAWAY

 

Yesterday we had a tiny break in temperature, and I instantly started thinking about fall…and pumpkins…and all things cinnamon and clove. While it was actually still in the 80’s, you’d be amazed at how cool that feels when you’ve spent weeks in the 100’s.

My scorching hot car snapped me right out of my fall-dream, but it did give me a sense of urgency.

Friends, summer is going to be over SOON. It really is. And so are all the AMAZING, fresh, summer veggies that I have once again spoiled myself with these past three months. So this weekend, I encourage you to embrace the season. Eat tomatoes until you burst, and try one of these recipes!
