The Weekend Dish: 9/10/2011

Happy weekend folks! And for any other football fans out there, happy opening weekend of the NFL season! I’m definitely ready for some football, as well as game day food. Be sure to check out my 150 Best Fall Recipes – there are oodles of awesome hot dips and appetizers that are perfect for munching on while you’re watching the game. This is my third year playing fantasy football with my boyfriend and some of his family and friends, which is always a great time. On top of that, I’m also in another all-girl food blogger fantasy football league this year. How fun! I’m playing with Tracy from Sugarcrafter, Dara from Cookin’ Canuck, Tracey from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures, Elle from Elle’s New England Kitchen, Jen from My Kitchen Addiction, Jackie from The Spicy Lens, and Marie from Meandering Eats. Looking forward to fall, football, and lots of fun!

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!
