Hi, From Carissa 9/6/19

September 6, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond friends! Back to school week went ok on our end, how about yours? We did make a trip to the beach last weekend and it brought me much joy! I am already counting the days for the first day off, Is that bad? 

It is  time for one of my favorite Richmond Traditions - The Armenian Food Festival! My husband is Armenian, we love the food, the dancing and the tradition ! 

We have some great articles this week, including a recipe I share with our partnership with Smithfield, a marinated pork tenderloin.
