The Weekend Dish: 10/1/2016


Hello weekend and HELLO OCTOBER.

Whaaaaat?! Is it really October already? It seemed so very, very far away when I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of February, and here we are. What are you doing to ring in the first day of the first full month of fall? We’re all still getting over colds, so it’ll be a very low key weekend at our house, just resting up before our new addition decides to make his appearance!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

Our house is still struggling with colds, so we’re probably nixing Sunday dinner this week to recuperate and avoid spreading more germs before the new baby arrives!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Fig Sticky Buns with Caramel Glaze (Love and Olive Oil)
Oh my gosh, these are gorgeous! I’m totally jealous because our grocery store never got fresh figs in this summer!

Game Day Beer Chili (How Sweet It Is)
You had me at “game day”… And beer… And chili. Okay, so this recipe apparently has my name written all over it!

Million Dollar Macaroni and Cheese (Carlsbad Cravings)
Holy cheesy macaroni and cheese! Can’t wait to try this one! I’ve yet to meet a mac and cheese I didn’t like!

Slow Cooker Little Smokies (FoodieCrush)
Confession: I’ve never made little smokies! These look like such an easy, tasty appetizer for parties or sports-watching.

Snickerdoodle Cobbler (House of Yumm)
Quite possibly the most perfect fall dessert.

Have a delicious weekend!
