The Weekend Dish: 5/21/2016


Hello weekend!

I hope yours is looking sunny! I think we’re supposed to have rain and cool weather today, but the forecast for the next ten days or so looks to be in the mid-70’s… bring on the warm weather! I’m hoping to play catch up today with a lot of stuff around the house and get some couch time in! What are doing? And what are you eating?!

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:

Chocolate Milk Iced Mochas (How Sweet It Is)
Now THIS is a coffee drink I can get behind!

No-Bake Cheesecake Bars with Fresh Blueberry Sauce (Thirty Handmade Days)
That topping just screams summer! Plus I love the massive layer of crust and cheesecake, of course :)

Pineapple Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce (The Recipe Rebel)
I still haven’t made my own barbecue sauce, but my local grocery store sells a pineapple version I was using for pulled chicken a couple of years ago, and it was DELICIOUS. Can’t wait to give this one a try!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches (Breanna’s Recipe Box)
These look amazing! There are recipes for the pulled pork, cole slaw and a homemade barbecue sauce!

White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter (Kevin & Amanda)
Oh my gosh. As a serious peanut butter lover, I can’t get this out of my head! Must try!

Have a delicious weekend!
