Hello! Happy Weekend!

My parents are staying with us this weekend - it's always great to have them visit. They wanted to attend the Minnesota State Fair with our family this year. The girls and I went on Thursday, opening day. And we're heading back today, all of us!

Are you going to the Minnesota State Fair? If so, be sure to check out my post featuring our favorite MN State Fair eats and drinks!

My Favorite Things... It's tomato season. And I hope you've been able to enjoy some of its sweetness! One of my favorite things this time of year is this tomato knife (link HERE). It has a thin serrated edge that slices through tomato skin likes it's butter, without crushing the tomato flesh. And it has a forked tip that makes it easy to grab up thin, delicate slices of tomatoes and move them from the cutting board to a platter. I could also call it my corn knife, because it's my favorite knife for cutting sweet corn kernels off the cob!

Thank you so much for joining us here each week, for reading the blog, and for following along on social media. We are grateful for your company.

Wishing you an awesome weekend!

CRUMBS: What We Made Recently

This moist and flavorful peach bread is full of ripe, juicy peaches and salty roasted pecans. Our girls prefer it without nuts, so I usually divide the batter in half - one pan with nuts and one pan without!

This was our Sunday supper last weekend. Grilled pork chops with a grilled romaine salad topped with sweet corn and tomatoes. The dressing is a homemade buttermilk ranch - one of the dressings we make the most. Everyone in our family loves it!
