Friday Faves - foodiecrush

Hello my friends and happy end of summer Friday!

Yikes, another season is coming to a close. You’d never know it with the week-long, record-breaking 100-degree temps we’re melting under here in Utah. GAAHHH! Can we please just move along to cooler weather where we can actually sit on the deck and enjoy ourselves? Thank you!

We’ve been eating more veggie burgers lately (for both health and environmental reasons) but this weekend I’m thinking these real-deal chunky bacon cheeseburgers are in order.
