The Weekend Dish: 11/5/2011

Happy first weekend of November! Hopefully you all survived the snow last weekend and trick-or-treating. I enjoyed my time at the Steelers game and watching us beat the Patriots, and then devouring food at Fat Head’s afterward. A pretty good food day when you could the soft pretzel I snagged at the game! Are you getting ready for the holidays yet? I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is now less than three weeks away, craziness! I did see my first Christmas commercial of the season last night and it made me just a little bit giddy. Can’t wait!

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!
