This Weeks Eats 6.29.14

We've survived the first week of summer, juuuust barely.  It always takes a week or so to get into a groove.  Thankfully we've got some good weather coming our way, as it always does around the 4th of July.  I'm so glad it falls on a Friday.  To celebrate, we're making our annual summer brats (boiled in good beer and then grilled) a little early this year!

I still haven't decided what we might do with the kids for holiday fun.  We're not at all into waiting around all day in crowds to watch fireworks, but there are places that we could probably drive to and watch them from afar, where they're not as noisy.  Especially since my son falls asleep like this every year:

Or maybe we'll just get some sparklers and call it good...

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!


  1. Spinach Artichoke Chicken sounds delicious. We never make it to the fireworks- L still goes to bed by 7/ 7:30 and it's just not worth the price we pay if we try to keep her up!

    1. Oh I AGREE! And it doesn't get dark around here until after 10pm. Soooo late.

  2. I agree with Laura, spinach artichoke chicken sounds lovely! I have been craving some artichokes, but haven't been able to find any around where I live yet, sadly. I'm going to have to try that recipe once they are around :)

  3. I totally missed the fireworks last year! I was laid out with a stomach bug and my curtains drawn before the Seattle sun even started thinking about setting.
    Those rice bowls look mighty tasty, I might have to give that a try this week.
