Welcome to the weekend, my friends! This was a nonstop week of recipe testing and I’m really loving being back in the kitchen these days. What have you been cooking?

ON THE BLOG this week: Check out this post for your chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card AND some awesome cheese too for National Cheese Month! All you need to do to be entered is share a photo of a cheese plate (however simple you’d like - literally just a slice of cheese on a plate will qualify!) on Instagram or in our Facebook group with the #barefeetkitchencheeseplates. Easy Cheesy Peasy.

Then hop on over to this post and join the conversation there. Leave a comment telling me your favorite way to eat pork and be entered to win my favorite remote oven thermometer. I’m giving away five of these thermometers this week!

Last but not least, check out this recipe for Pan Fried Pork Medallions with Creamy Wine Sauce. It has become a reader favorite from The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and it’s the perfect way to enjoy perfectly cooked pork.

Also, if you haven’t yet grabbed your copy of that cookbook, get it now! It’s on sale for under $15 and the reviews are consistently awesome. I am so glad that you all are enjoying it!

What I’m CRAVING: This White Garlic Chicken Lasagna by A Wicked Whisk caught my eye this week and it needs to happen soon. This Avocado Salad with Tomatoes, Mozzarella, and Basil Pesto by Julia’s Album sounds like an excellent way to say farewell to the last warm days of summer.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my giant stack of clipboards (link HERE). Whatever the project I’m working on, the odds are good that I’ll have a clipboard or three at my fingertips.

What I’m LISTENING to: 3 Doors Down (link HERE) wound up dominating my Pandora playlist this week and I haven’t minded a bit. Sometimes, you just have to go with whatever the stations send you and this was fun.

What I’m WATCHING: New Amsterdam (link HERE) on NBC. Have you watched it yet? It’s a new one and I’m already hooked. If you were a fan of ER or are a fan of Grey’s Anatomy, I’m betting you’ll like this one too. If you’ve seen it, let me know what you think so far.

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
