Ahh I love this time of year! The weather is almost perfect, but its still nice enough to be outside from morning until night! It’s grilling AND s’more season! (Oh, P.S. If you don’t already smear your S’mores with Peanut Butter or Cookie Butter, then you are completely missing out..do it. You’ll thank me later!
If you haven’t guessed, I had a wonderful weekend! Two gorgeous days, two looong walk/runs, hours outside with my kids, lots of delicious food and sweets and it’s also now officially my birthday week! We still get those right? Entire weeks worth of a birthday? I’m turning 25, but I’m not to old for that yet! (I hope!) This time of year makes me so happy..I love New England is the Spring and Summer..its perfect!
Oh oh..if you’ve been following along for any length of time, you know that when my hubs graduates in a couple weeks, he commissions, and will officially be on active duty. We’re moving to Missouri in September for just five months for training, but more importantly we’ve been waiting to find out where we will be stationed for 2-3 years following that. Drum roll please….We are heading to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington next February!! We couldn’t be more ecstatic! I know that won’t always be the feeling when we get PCS’d but I have always wanted to live on the West Coast, and I can’t think of anywhere Id rather be than right outside of Seattle! It is going to be an adventure for sure!
Okay, okay..I’ve waited long enough to talk about my new most favorite appetizer! The second I took my first bite of these Sun-dried Tomato and Whipped Feta Crostini’s, I started sending pictures to people and repeated “Holy Crap” after every.single.bite. These Crostini’s are absolutely out of this world. I honestly don’t even know what to say, the complexity of the flavors on your palate is so completely perfect. The sweet and salty jam, against the creamy, salty, tangy, whipped feta, all on top of a crispy baguette, ugh there aren’t enough words.
I’m telling you, seriously do this. Mothers Day is coming up..these are perfect for that. But do we really need an excuse to make something so completely amazing? No. This jam, that feta..ugh, I can’t wait to combine it again.
