The Weekend Dish: 10/14/2017

It’s Saturdayyyyyyy!

This week totally kicked my butt between a broken laptop, a rough night of sleep due to Joseph’s seasonal allergies, unscheduled pediatrician visits, and errands galore, that I collapsed onto the couch last night and cried uncle. (I may have also eaten a couple of cookies.) Did you watch any scary movies last night since it was Friday the 13th? I’m a big baby and can’t stand horror movies; I think the Scream series and The Blair Witch Project did me in as a teenager.

What do you  have planned for the weekend? I’m hoping to regroup today and catch up on life and do a little kitchen stuff.

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!
