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!

    Happy November! In Cyprus we still have sunshine, and we pray for rain… I hope you are all fine in US.
