Weekend Inspiration

Try: This weekend the weather is supposed to cool down a little bit. I'm picturing cocktails in the back yard with my husband while Emmett plays before bed. I love anything with cucumber in it, and we have grapefruit growing in our side yard, so these grapefruit cucumber cocktails are the perfect drink to try!

Buy: Speaking of lounging in the back yard with a cocktail.. Ray and I have been toying with buying a hammock . I'm thinking it's time we go for it.

Make: I bought a pizza dough from Trader Joe's on Monday that we've yet to use, so tonight I'll ask Ray to grill a pizza for us. This one from Martha Stewart looks amazing. I'll probably add ricotta because I'm obsessed with ricotta. And maybe a little basil from our garden.

Bake: I want to be one of those moms who bakes bread. I love the smell of bread in the oven, and I love freshly baked bread so much. But I have to admit I'm intimidated. I think this weekend I'll start with a simple recipe like this one, and if it goes well, I'll try something a bit more labor intensive next time.

  1. Hey Lady! I'm loving your instagrams lately. Your new yard looks awesome! I'm totally with you on the cocktails - but I think I'll be substituting vodka for gin. The bread recipe you linked to is really similar to the Master Recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. If you want to get into baking bread, I highly recommend the book. The recipes are super easy and there is something so satisfying about making your own loaves. They also have a good website if you just want to try things out first. -B
