The Weekend Dish: 7/23/2011

I can’t believe it’s already closing in on the end of July; where has the summer gone?! I enjoyed a ball game at sold-out PNC Park last night; although we lost it was so much fun to see so many people in the stands. Also, if you’re from around Pittsburgh and a beer drinker, you must check out the IC Light Mango. Although perhaps sacrilegious to my hometown, I’m not a big Iron City or IC Light fan, but the mango version was flat-out delicious. Big thumbs up! I hope all of you are having a great weekend!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy! :)
