A little more than a week ago I was wearing my cute lime green jacket with a hood as I jetted around town doing my errands. It was pouring rain and quite cool for it being the month of June.
Since Wednesday of last week it has officially become Summer around here with much warmer temps, and unfortunately even less desire for me to be in the kitchen cooking anything.

Yakisoba Noodles w/steamed zucchini & green salad
Waffles with strawberries and sausage links
Homemade pizza with sliced fruit (using this recipe for the dough) and a recipe from Bobby Flay for the pizza sauce – hope it’s good!
Sauerkraut and spareribs with boiled potatoes
Eating out. We’ll be doing some bookcase building that day (thanks IKEA!) I can’t wait to see what things will look like!
Italian Sausage Soup with crusty bread and green salad
Have a great week!
