We've spent this final weekend of August enjoying a mix of summer and fall activities: picnic dinner, tailgating and college football (Pitt dominated with a 62-0 victory!), family cookout, and even some browsing for new winter jackets. The latter mission was unsuccessful, but I feel confident that I've got enough time before Old Man Winter hits western PA. Although, snow in October isn't unheard of...
I'm a little ready for fall, can you tell? Before I get too ahead of myself -- I blame you, Starbucks -- let's back up a bit and check out what I made for dinner last week. A few new-to-us items, like pasta carbonara (OMG) and a twist on classic Mexican quesadillas, thanks to a few fabulous blogs around the web. Enjoy!
