Happy weekend before Thanksgiving!
One more short week before the holiday madness hits. Are you spending time prepping for turkey day? Relaxing and putting your feet up? Starting on Christmas shopping or decorating since Thanksgiving is late this year? I plan to not do too much so I can rest up knock this chest cold out before the holiday festivities begin!
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!
