Coming attractions

And a good morning to you, fellow Americans!  How was your holiday weekend?  Sunny?  Relaxing?  Delicious?  Hopefully all of those!

The Kemp family did quite a bit of grilling this weekend... In fact, dinner came from the grill four nights in a row.  Spinach and feta salmon burgers, stuffed turkey burgers, barbeque chicken, and classic beef burgers and hot dogs.  Include quintessential sides like corn, baked beans, watermelon, potato salad, and we had quite a holiday spread.  Oh, and how could I forget dessert -- there may not have been flag cake, but there were fresh strawberries and whipped cream, as well as ice cream and/or toasty s'mores every single night.  When in Rome America, right? :)

Though I didn't do any new cooking this weekend to share with you, I've got a few recipes in the wings to feature this week.  I'm taking full advantage of fresh summer produce, so get ready for new and exciting (not to mention absolutely gorgeous) dishes!

Tonight: Watermelon, arugula, and goat cheese salad with balsamic glaze
Wednesday: Summer pasta with corn, basil, tomatoes, and bacon
Thursday: Pizza turnovers
Friday: Blue plate special a.k.a. whatever's left in the pantry and fridge!

That last one isn't quite so glamorous, but it's necessary since this weekend is moving weekend!  Though I'm not going very far, I want to minimize what perishable items I need to transport to the new place.  Speaking transporting things, tonight I begin the three day packing marathon.  Wish me luck!

Have a great day back at it!
