Anybody else having fun with the final days of summer time whereas additionally getting enthusiastic about fall? I’m actually having fun with the cooler mornings currently. (And sure, I do know, I’m climate obsessed. That’s unlikely to alter anytime quickly.)
ON THE BLOG this week: This potato salad made with roasted potatoes is a whole new world of potato salad awesomeness and it is advisable to strive it asap. A tangy creamy dressing coats each chunk of this salad together with hard-boiled eggs, olives, and pickles.
Recent Strawberry Ice Cream is an old-fashioned favorite when made simply with strawberries, sugar, and cream (or milk). Only a few components provides as much as a summer time ice cream deal with that everybody loves.

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this super lightweight scarf. Whereas I nearly by no means truly put on a shawl, this one travels with me practically in every single place I am going. It’s a journey blanket on highway journeys, it’s a scarf if a movie show is chilly, and it does double responsibility as a pillow or a blanket on chilly flights. It folds or rolls to an nearly unbelievably small measurement, making it excellent for tucking right into a carry-on.
I purchased what I’ve known as for years “the proper scarf” on a piece journey about 8 years in the past. Sadly, the model discontinued the scarves and I’ve by no means discovered one other one prefer it. (And I’ve tried an entire lot of various scarves that have been listed as “journey scarves.”) However this scarf? I’m ecstatic over it. I adore it each bit as a lot as my “excellent” one and I now have backup and an ideal scarf to share with you too.
What I’m WATCHING: No Time to Die. I lastly watched No Time to Die and it was so good! Whether or not you’re a bond fan or not, I believed this was an ideal film.
