Well now if this doesn’t scream my husbands name, I’m not sure what does. This, right here, is one of his very favorite meals…and I have to admit, he has pretty darn good taste.

Monday Monday. Give me allllll the coffee today, friends. You feeling it too? Some Mondays I am so ready to rock into the week…this Monday, totally ready to rock myself back to sleep. Perfect day for a hardly-a-recipe recipe, no?!
B.B.T Lettuce Wraps. Bacon Bleu Tomato Lettuce Wraps. Because you know what? Sometimes I don’t really feel like cooking. And sometimes, even though I don’t feel like cooking, I still feel like eating something yummy.
Summer is officially halfway over you guys. Each year around this time I seem to begin easing into fall mindset; it’s a point of bittersweetness thinking about what’s shortly ahead.
School. Structure. Less daylight. Earlier bedtimes. More responsibility. And quite honestly, each time around this year, that all tends to sound slightly appealing to me. As much as I adore our summers here in MN, the fall brings so much wonderful newness. The scenery is impeccable. The crisp air and lack of mosquitos are like a dream. The kids getting into a new routine and their utter excitement about school is so uplifting. And schedules…you know I love a solid, predictable schedule 😉

Celebrate these last days of summer in your kitchen and make this dish. It’s sheer delight; summer at its very very very finest. And if you have even the slightest love for Mediterranean flavor, this is absolutely for you. Continue reading
