Hello and here we go, friends! Ready for another week?
We had a pretty great weekend around these parts. The cold/rainy/windy weather on Friday night put a damper on the guys' plan to turn the garage into a quarantine unit, but we still had a blast hanging out on the front porch and handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. When we could no longer feel our fingers and toes, we headed inside for Crock Pot French dip sandwiches and a Catchphrase tournament (don't ask about the winner...). After an overtime Pitt football loss on Saturday, Matt and I headed out for dinner and a movie; he liked Birdman, while I didn't care for it one bit. Sunday turned into Funday, thanks to a little shopping and lunch date after church. We ended the weekend in my favorite way: homecooked dinner followed by couch time and some TV.
November is upon us, which means Thanksgiving is less than a month away and Christmas is just around the corner. I'll be ramping up my baking and sharing a few recipes for inventive side dishes in the coming weeks. If there's anything in particular you want to see, please speak up! 'Tis the season to be thankful and giving, so I want to give ya what you want.
See ya tomorrow! :)
