Meal plan: Week of 8/3-8/9

Now THAT was what I call a summer weekend!  How was yours?

Matt and I took full advantage of the picture-perfect weather and hopped from one fun adventure to the next.  We went to a local orchard for a peach festival, enjoyed a public art pool party, celebrated a friend's 30th birthday, kayaked on the Allegheny River, and indulged our sweet tooth with my new favorite ice cream in Pittsburgh (Antney's!).  Somewhere around 9:00 Sunday night, we both collapsed into a heap o' humans onto the couch.

As much fun as we had on vacation, it was nice to get back to our normal summertime routine, including weeknight rituals of making dinner together and taking an evening stroll around town.  Yep, you read that correctly -- I've removed the iron gate and invited Matt into the kitchen to cook with me.  It may have something to do with a new gadget I received for my birthday that has both of us bursting with excitement.  Spoiler alert: Get ready for an epic summertime burger recipe later this week ;)
