The Weekend Dish: 12/14/2019

Happy middle-of-December to you!

Phew, we just survived a full moon AND Friday the 13th! And now the home stretch to Christmas… I’m hoping to fill the remaining time with some cookie baking and gift wrapping and some Christmas movie watching. What does this weekend hold for you?

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!

What I Bookmarked This Week

I shared this creamy tortellini soup last week but had to mention it again because I made it for dinner last night and it was a HUGE hit. We all loved it – highly recommend!

Death by chocolate peppermint cookies to add to your holiday baking list.

I HAVE to try this copycat Chipotle guacamole recipe; one of our favorite take out treats, and the kids gobble it up, too!

Peanut butter jam thumbprints look out of this world amazing.
