Here's The Latest #121
June 2, 2018

Hello! And welcome to June!

Our girls finished up with school on Thursday, saying good bye to 10th and 5th grade. It is so hard to believe that:
1.) we now have a junior in high school, and that
2.) our elementary years are over.
Life is moving along at warp speed, with our oldest starting her first real job and our family buying a third vehicle for her to use for work and the upcoming school year. I'm trying to live in the moment and appreciate every day, but it's really hard to just keep up!!

A shout-out to all things asparagus right now. Because I simply can't get enough of it this time of year! Pictured above is one of my favorite recipes - Sugar Grilled Beef and Asparagus Kebabs. I hope you give this a try!

We're excited to be in NYC this week! If you want to follow along on our family's NYC adventure, tune in to my Instagram feed and stories.

My Favorite Things this week... I am no fashionista, but I've received a number of compliments the past couple of weeks when I've worn this nail polish (link HERE). Maybe you'll like it too?! And if you or someone you know likes gummy bears, I hope you know about this brand (link HERE). This is our favorite gummy candy!

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.

Have a great weekend!
Brenda

This Chopped Ramen Noodle Salad with Grilled Teriyaki Turkey is loaded with flavor and texture. It perfectly delivers the ying and yang of sweet and savory. And I adore those crunchy ramen noodles!

CRUMBS: What We Made This Week

A fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce is quick and easy to make. Our favorite way to enjoy it is spooned over scoops of vanilla ice cream, but it's also great over angel food cake, pound cake, waffles, French toast, and pancakes.

I used this recipe, and simply added a good amount of chopped fresh strawberries.

On Instagram this week, I shared a giveaway of the cookbook "Meals from the Mitten" from my Michigan friend, Gina. One of the recipes inside is this awesome Asparagus Guacamole. If you like asparagus and if you like guacamole, you will LOVE this!

To grab the recipe, go here.

This BLT Macaroni Salad has become a favorite. We've been making it every summer for a few years now, and it graced our table when we entertained over the long weekend.
