Grilled Shrimp and Goat Cheese Pizza - easy grilled pizza on naan bread with homemade pesto, shrimp, tomatoes, and goat cheese!

This summer I’ve teamed up with Bertolli Olive Oil to remix two classic summer recipes. I spun the Bertolli Olive Oil bottle to see what classic summer recipes I got to recreate with my own spin and landed on a pizza and salsa.

As excited as I am for fall, I’m pretty sad to say goodbye to grilling and eating dinner outdoors and all that comes along with that. I had an amazing summer filled with delicious food and I’m not sure I’m ready to say goodbye to my grill just yet.

Happy almost Friday, guys!

I’ve got the urge to get out of town this weekend but I have too many dogs and too many kids to just pick up and leave. So I’m probably going to settle for lying in a beach chair in my backyard and watching all of season 5 of New Girl.

Aaaaaand I bought a new grill this week so I’ll probably grill every meal. I’m pretty excited about that.

Big news, guys!

I have figured out how to turn my grill on!

Yep, had that grill for, like, 6 years and I just now figured out how to work it.

Next challenge: the smoker.

Anyway, I haven’t stopped using it since I figured it out. I’m obsessed.

How is it Monday already?

I’m not ready!

Let’s go back to Friday night!

Anyway.

I’m back from Salt Lake City – got in late last night. I had the best time at the conference and met so many amazing bloggers that I’d only ever talked to on the interwebs. Plus, Nicole and I got matching tattoos.

That’s a normal thing to do on a work trip, right?

Right?!

We are officially two days away from one of the biggest grilling holidays. How excited are you? Hopefully as excited as I am.

We’ve already talked about how much I love the 4th of July but what I haven’t told you is that I’m approaching the holiday with a game plan. Because I have s’mores on my brain and I cannot even wait to roast a million marshmallows over the grill and then smush them in between graham crackers with all sorts of chocolate.

The best.
