 {One of the few outdoor dinners we've had this very rainy summer: grilled pork chops loaded with sauteed peppers + onions, goat cheese, and balsamic glaze + pan roasted brussel sprouts + bacon + pecans.  Bobby is the master chef around here.}

Hope you have an incredible start to a brand new week!
