Happy Friday! You probably already know this if you follow me on Instagram, but I've been on the Cape this week and it has been wonderful. I'm grateful to Kris-Ann for helping me produce such wonderful editorial this week and can't believe my vacation is coming to an end! (Other than launching and sharing editorial, I've been super lazy -- it's been awesome!) Before I prepare to leave the Cape, here's a great roundup of 28 weekend events. Enjoy!
Hooray for seasonal peaches! Like strawberries and blueberries, peaches are wonderfully sweeter and more affordable right now...I love when they become abundant at the market! Peaches are in season in Massachusetts mid-July to mid-September and this week's Eat Seasonal feature includes 12 recipes that will allow you to incorporate this tasty stone fruit all the way from breakfast to dinner to condiments.
Crowdsourcing for book recommendations has become one of my favorite things to do via social media. I love hearing how passionate people are about books and over the last several years, these lists have been my go-to source for so many wonderful reads! Following last year's 80 books for your booklist, I decided to canvas again and received 100 recommendations in a few days -- bookmark or print this list out for your next bookstore or library visit!
I find that green vegetables especially improve in flavor when they come in season and green beans are no exception. Green beans are in season in Massachusetts July and August and this week's Eat Seasonal feature includes 8 tasty ways to incorporate green beans into your meals, in some instances thinking outside the box -- even for breakfast and as a tart!.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! We enjoyed a lovely one and I've been reveling in the fact that this summer has been so different and wonderful for Laurel regarding camps and things. I hope to find the space to write more on that soon. Meanwhile, welcome to a new week and another packed edition of the Weekly Blueprint (including lots of free picks!). Enjoy and share with your friends!
