Friday Finds 7.17.2015

friday finds fruit -

Whoomp! It’s the weekend and I’m pretty excited! I’m heading to a DIY barbecue pizza party and I’m bringing tiny meatballs, roasted garlic, and caramelized onions. I can’t wait to see what other pizza toppings there are. Other than that, I don’t have too much planned for the weekend, just the usual errand-running and dinner party things with friends.

I’ve been busying eating all of the summertime fruits, including lychee. Lychee is one of my faves, but they’re not as sweet and juicy as I remember as a kid. And what’s up with lychee not being being as pinky-red as they used to be?

1. This absolutely freaks the shit out of me and it’s also a really good read.
2. I love eating out, but this seems a little bit crazy.
3. Boy oh boy, is working at Lululemon a head trip.
4. There are some hardcore toys in this article

1. Speaking of lychee, Cynthia made this gorgeous lychee and white nectarine cobbler.
2. This is the pineapple cake of my dreams.
3. It’s Popsicle Week at Wit and Vinegar and it’s all of my icy dreams come true. (Check out my pop right here!)
4. This fried chicken sandwich…SO GOOD.
5. Give me all the grilled chicken.

I’ve got my eyes on you:
1. Did you guys buy anything on Prime Day? It was kind of a bust, but I did find this torch top for my Searzall.
2. I blazed through Luckiest Girl Alive (I felt neutral trending towards slightly bored by it) and have moved on to The Cage. It’s a YA novel (I LOVE reading YA) about humans in a….wait for it…zoo created by aliens. LOL. So far I like it though!

Have an awesome weekend friends!
love & potatoes,

  1. had the best lychees while in hawaii last month. only $1/lb, and the meat to seed ratio seemed high. too bad they’re not quite the same on the mainland, sigh.

    Do you know where the gorgeous plate is from (in the picture)? Just what i am looking for at the moment.

    1. Stephanie Le says:

      it’s from crate and barrel :)

  3. Caitlin says:

    spicy fried chicken sandwiches so HOT right now! the Fuku is sooooo good, but L&P’s looks awesome. happy weekend!

  4. Alana says:

    OMG, Ashlae’s pineapple upside down cake is the dreamiest!!!!!!! Also, I missed Prime Day. HOW, WHY, (secretly, although I guess not so secretly, glad it wasn’t THAT great). :(

  5. cynthia says:

    omg I am in LOVE with your plating, Steph. That cover photo!! Also, YES what is with the non-pink lychees? They’re so weird to me. I feel like I convince myself they’re not ripe just because they’re green, even though they ARE ripe. hahaha. I’m also so going to check out these reads… why is YA so good?! Love your Friday links always!!!

  6. Oooh, Molly (from Dunk & Crumble) just posted the other day that she went to HS with the author of Luckiest Girl Alive!
