Reminders about Connecticut's tax-free week. First-day-of-school photos. Ads for pumpkin spice everything.

It's official -- summer is winding down and many folks are already shifting their focus to all things fall. Meanwhile, our family is determined to enjoy every last bit of summer. We're heading to the beach next week... and I'm still sharing summertime content here on Taste As You Go.

Though, many of you told me on Facebook that you don't just drink iced tea during the summer. Many of you said that you like drinking iced tea all year round... So maybe I'm ahead of the game this time?

At any rate... I've enlisted the help of my fellow food bloggers to put together this round-up of 20 Refreshing Iced Teas. If you're curious to see which recipes made the cut, then keep reading!

(Oh, and if you're more of an iced coffee drinker, don't worry... I've got you covered!)

What's for Dinner: August 11 - August 17

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

How's the weather where you are?

Right now, in our little corner of Connecticut, the weather is glorious. We went to bed last night and the temps were in the 50s. Perfect sleeping weather... especially with the windows open.

When we drove to brunch at one of our favorite local places this morning, the sun was out and the temps were in the low 70s. We were lucky enough to snag a table outside on the patio. Being outside with the kids helped me enjoy the moment more... Why? Because I wasn't as worried about preventing them from disturbing other diners.

(Parents, you know what I'm talking about, right?)

Now we're all enjoying sitting on the back deck before lunch. Monty is laying in the sun... Stephen and I are working in silence (for the most part)... And the kids are creating crayon masterpieces at their picnic table.

Seriously, the weather is so lovely, I know I'm going to hate going inside later to prep for dinner... While I see how long I can stay out here, why don't you check out what I've planned for dinner at our house this week?

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the weekend. I need some time to reset and recharge... to find my spark again. Because honestly?

I'm just plain worn out.

We have a family birthday party to attend tomorrow. Otherwise, we have nothing else on the calendar. So I'm hoping to chisel away at my to-do list a little bit and to catch up a bit on sleep. A tall order with two young kids in the house, but a mom's gotta try, right?

To help kick off the weekend, here's the next batch of Tidbits for you to read at your leisure.

Enjoy!

Greener Ways to Throw a Party

There are simple ways to make your celebrations more sustainable, and it starts with swapping your supplies.

Simple swaps you can make to make your celebrations more sustainable | Taste As You Go


Over the past few months, I've been pretty upfront about the progress I'm making with my 40 Before 40 list. But I realized I haven't been as candid with my progress on taking the "less is more" approach in 2019. In today's post, I'll share some updates about my goal to "reduce household waste"... specifically how that goal inspired me to find greener ways to throw a party.
