Weekly Menu for the Week of June 17

Hey there, friends, how was your weekend? We had a very slow weekend. Of course we got some things done, like laundry and groceries. We started watching The Hobbit (Josh finished reading that book about a month ago), visited a local nursery for some hanging flower baskets, and then we played The Oregon Trail game Saturday night. It was just a lovely time!

Let’s talk about what I’ve been working on behind the scenes…English scones, for one. As you all know we went to London in April/May (full trip post coming soon) and I fell in love with their scones. I’ve been working on something similar. I’ve tested a recipe twice now, but I plan on trying a slightly different method to compare flavor, texture, and ease. I’m fairly partial to the version I just tried because it was so simple. In addition to English scones, I’ve also tested a recipe for clotted cream twice – another British staple that earned our affection! That one I’m still working on, too. While I haven’t gotten the texture where I want it, the flavor is perfection.

Onto this week’s menu – I’m keeping it simple, as I have some errands and more recipes to test. Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

I don’t know about you, but the closer we get to full-on summer (which is Thursday of this week, kids) I just want burgers. Josh makes this amazing turkey burger he’s been testing out and it is incredible! But I thought I would share my Burger Pinterest board for you all, because BURGERS are just wonderful!!! Right?

Have a great week, friends!
