The Weekend Dish: 10/29/2016


It’s Saturday! Also, the last weekend of October AND Halloween weekend AND the last weekend before we turn the clocks back. Whew!

Are you all-in on Halloween-ing this weekend? Tell me your plans! Trick or treating in our neighborhood isn’t until Monday evening, and that’s all that we have planned… neither of us are big into costumes or scary movies. I haven’t cooked or baked anything since Dominic was born (unless you count heating up freezer meals or making popcorn on the stove?), but I’m craving chocolate chip cookies. I had originally planned to make a batch of cookies and brownies for the freezer the day before my due date, but alas, I ended up going into labor! I’m thinking of trying these softbatch cream cheese chocolate chip cookies here soon!

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!
