The Weekend Dish: 8/27/2011

Happy hurricane weekend! How many of you have been affected by Hurricane Irene? Living in Pittsburgh, you don’t really feel the effects of hurricanes, however when Ivan hit in 2004 it came right up through and caused some major flooding. I hope any of you that are in the path of the storm stay safe and don’t experience any damage! That being said, when you are holed up due to a storm, what are some of your favorite snacks or treats to keep on hand? I think I would stock up on chips, salsa and guacamole! :)

I mentioned last week that I found out that I am a finalist for “Most Valuable Blogger in Pittsburgh” in the Lifestyle category. You can still vote once per day until September 9th.
