summer feels like the best + worst thing these days in the bridges household. the hardest part is that everyday feels like it should be a lake day NOT a work day when the temps are this high (remember the gold old days of summer vacation?!). but i do love that weekends by the pool have become a regular occurrence and homemade salsa is a staple on the kitchen counter. i love that friends wander in on weeknights and we're trying to get our butts down to the beach as often as possible. there's something slow and beautiful about this time of year, probably because everybody is doing their absolute best not to melt outside like a popsicle.
one place that IS cool is the grocery store. and i bet last time you visited, you noticed that those glorious little things called peaches are back in season and gracing the grocery store aisles. grant + i are obsessed, because nothing quite says summer like a juicy ripe peach. we eat them beachside, on the patio under the bistro lights as a post-work snack, and during lunch time with juice spilling everywhere.
as mentioned above, this time of year seems to instigate impromptu get togethers left and right (my favorite kind!) and having something easy + sweet on hand when that happens feels right every time. enter the PEACH berry crisp. you guys, i am not joking when i say that this is THE EASIEST way to impress your people with a perfect summer treat without really doing any hard work. BOOM WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN THAT?!Read More
