This past weekend, my bf and I took a nice trip down to Valparaiso. It had been 2 years since he graduated and we hadn’t been down since. It was so nice to walk around campus and see all their new additions and get to have some of our old favorite foods. Summer is winding down, however, I am glad we booked two weekend trips this month. Next weekend is Wine Tasting in Northern Michigan!
My baby sis is going off to school soon and so we are going to all her favorite restaurants one last time for the summer. Social in Birmingham, MI is a favorite of ours. Espeically on a hot summer night. There is nothing better then a wonderful meal with my beautiful mother and sister.
Summer is a time to cook and eat with loved ones. Enjoying the warm nights just drinking wine. Those nights are my favorite. Since I have moved I have thrown 3 dinner parties, about once a month. My most recent dinner, I served individual Beef Wellington’s. My first time making that dish and they turned out so well. It was a lot of work, but I loved that I could prep everything before my guests arrived and just throw them in the oven during cocktail hour. This past month, I made eggplant parmesan and last night, I attempted cooking scallops. I’m still learning how to sear them. Have a great week everyone! xo
Now that summer is dwindling down..I still have a few things on my list. Though life always gets busy, I am going to try to fit in a couple of these things.
It’s August… I still can’t get over it. Before we know it leaves will start changing colors and then there will be snow on the ground. Before all that happens I am going to enjoy every last bit of this summer weather. With summer comes lots and lots of fireworks. Well, I can understand that we should celebrate every weekend of the summer with hours of fireworks.
