Pinning and Planning – Week of June 1 {Dinner Menu}

PinningPlanning RunDMT Pinning and Planning   Week of May 18 {Dinner Menu}National Burger Month may have flipped past us, however, Iron Chef Allan is still perfecting the “Best Burger”. He’s taken a page of our Bobby Flay’s cookbook to build the perfect burger, because this method guarantees juicy burgers. After all, Bobby Flay is known as THE grill master, so I’m sure he knows what he’s talking about.

We’ll test Bobby Flay’s burger secret later today.

Another one of Iron Chef Allan’s latest obsessions is Petto di Pollo al Peperoncino, a spicy chicken dish he fell in love with at Il Fornaio in San Jose. Without a recipe and just the description of the dish based the online menu, he will try to replicate the flavor profile like only Iron Chef Allan can.  It’s just what he does and why he earned the title Iron Chef Allan.

Summer vacation begins in two days, but the last day of school happen to falls on my sister’s birthday. As much as I love celebrating the last day of school with my kids, I am obligated to spend it with my sister to mourn the end of her thirties. At least that’s what I’ve been told by my sister. So like a dutiful big sister, I will comfort her in the Indian Rocks Beach sun drinking Prosecco poolside.

Then, the next day, I’m hosting my first charity fundraiser for the Danny Did Foundation at You Say When Yogurt and I will be attempting to sneak in dinner before dessert on Wednesday. If you live in Tampa, come out and show your support! RSVP here via my Facebook page. If you can’t join us, please consider contributing to my fundraising page.


After that, it’s all summer fun all the time for my kids and me!

    Yum- everything sounds good! I’m recruiting my husband to do a lot more cooking these days- nothing that I make appeals to me by the time I’m done cooking. Hoping it’s a short phase and not sticking around for the whole 3rd trimester. 🙂
