The Weekend Dish: 4/30/2016


Happy Saturday to you!

I hope you had a fantastic week. Today is my sister’s birthday (!!), so I had her make our menu for Sunday dinner tomorrow (check it out below). I’ll likely be spending my day biding the time until the Penguins game starts at 8pm. There’s nothing better than playoff hockey, but I really wish the games started earlier! Hopefully no overtime tonight! *fingers crossed*

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!
