Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend celebrating all those amazing dads in our lives! Our plan today is to do my husband’s favorite thing…..absolutely nothing! 🙂  What are your plans for Father’s Day?

This past Thrifty Thursday was one of our biggest ever–just under 500 budget friendly posts linked up! I especially enjoyed all the fantastic summer recipes and ideas, and it is SO hard to narrow it down to just a few. In any case, here are my picks for Weekend Wandering:

First of all, this Smoked Fish Dip from Leaving the Rut looks super easy to make and sounds like the perfect starter to any meal!


Next, this Grilled Chicken & Nectarine Salad from Cozy Country Living is full of fresh ingredients and can be made in minutes!


This next Summer Veggies & White Bean salad from Living Surrendered would be a perfect accompaniment to any barbeque.


These California Chicken Wraps from Love Bakes Good Cakes look like a delicious and easy lunch option for the whole family!


Pizza is one of those dishes that can be made with all your favorite ingredients! Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom has an awesome Easy Southwest Chicken Pizza that sounds really yummy!


Of course pizza doesn’t just have to be for dinner–this Fruit Dessert Pizza from Little House Living sounds fantastic too!


Need a healthy snack to have on hand this summer? These No Bake Almond Butter Granola Bars from Luv a Bargain are made with wholesome ingredients and only take 15 minutes to make!


Let’s not forget the drinks! She Saved has a Watermelon Punch Recipe  that can be served in a half a watermelon for a fun & festive treat!


How cute are these Festive Summer Mason Jar Vases from View From the Fridge? So pretty!


Planning to do any canning this summer? These Honey Spiced Peaches from A Life in Balance look like a great new recipe to try!


Finally, these Summer Activity Jars from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom are such a clever way to encourage independence and promote family fun!
