The Weekend Dish: 6/18/2011

Another weekend is here! How was your week? Eat anything fabulous? Do anything fun? I’ve been spending a good bit of time in the kitchen, and have been enjoying coming up with some different spins on recipes; I hope you’re enjoying them! A couple of nights ago we went to see Aziz Ansari do stand-up, which was hysterical. For any fans of Parks & Recreation and Tom Haverford, if you get the opportunity to see him live, do it! Awesome show. Now that hockey season is officially over, I’ve taken to relishing the fact that the infinitely-lowly Pittsburgh Pirates are over .500 and giving us something to cheer about. I haven’t been much into baseball since I was a kid, so it’s been fun to watch!

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! :)
