The Weekend Dish: 9/26/2015


Hello Saturday!

Can you believe it’s the last weekend of September?! Crazy!! The air is starting to feel much more like fall here, so we’ve been enjoying keeping the windows open and breathing in that fresh air. What do you have planned for the weekend? Tomorrow is my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Mom!), so we’ll be celebrating at Sunday dinner!

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

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Crockpot Chicken Stroganoff (Chelsea’s Messy Apron)
I need all of the slow cooker meals I can find, and I love that this one doesn’t use any canned soup.

No Cook Pizza Sauce (The Suburban Soapbox)
I love homemade pizza, but don’t always want to take the time to cook down the sauce. Love this recipe!

Peanut Butter Bread (She Wears Many Hats)
Oh my gosh, yes! Why have I never thought of this?!

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins (Baked by Rachel)
Gorgeous muffins… I would like to eat these every single morning until December.
