The Weekend Dish: 11/5/2016


Hello weekend!

I have to be honest, since Dominic was born, all of my days totally run together and I’m always losing track of what day it is. Weekdays and weekends feel one in the same, but I cannot believe we’re already standing here in November. Totally crazy! It’s cooling off here, so I’m busting out the warm hoodies and fuzzy socks. What are you up to this weekend?

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back tonight! Hopefully it won’t throw the boys for too much of a loop. I seem to remember Joseph not having any issues with it all last year, so fingers crossed that continues!

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!

I adore poke cakes and love trying new variations… this one looks incredible.

I’ll just take that entire batch and hide it in the pantry, thank you very much.
