Good morning! Happy Friday! I hope that you had a great week and are ready for the weekend. Do you have big plans or just a relaxing weekend at home? I do not have any grand plans just a lot of little ones but they all add up to a relaxing weekend to be sure.
Summer is creeping up on us here in the south and bringing with it all of its beautiful fruits and vegetables, berries, peas, corn, tomato’s, etc. I have many fond memories of picking strawberries and blueberries with my grandmother and cousins, I think we ate as much as we picked.

This week I am going to be making a few of these scrumptious Lemon Blueberry breads from Chocolate with Grace. Doesn’t this bread just shout “Summer”?

As I said last week hamburgers are one of my favorite meals to eat in the summer, in fact my husband and I like to try new ones all the time. This week I discovered this Greek Yogurt Ranch Burger with Cajun Fried Pickles made by Crem de la Crumb, I cannot wait to try this one.

I read The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart, a gem of a book that I have had for a few years and finally got around to reading.
Have you seen the movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen? It was released in 2011 but I watched it last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
As school comes to an end and graduation looms for so many I was reminded of a speech I heard last year that has become a favorite, it was given by George Saunders at Syracuse University. I think you will enjoy it. Click HERE.
Although not all of my “Friday Favorites” are current I thought you might enjoy them. I would love to hear about your favorite recipes, books, movies or blogs.
Have a safe a wonderful weekend!
