The Weekend Dish: 2/27/16


Happy weekend!!

I hope that you had a great week and that your weekend is off to a fantastic start. Joseph came down with his very first fever yesterday, and it was so sad :(  He was not himself at all and my heart just ached for him. He cut his first molar earlier this week and there’s another one not far behind, so I’m hoping that’s all it is. In the meantime, there’s been a whole lot of mopey snuggles on the couch…

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!
