Welcome to the Weekend Round-Up, y'all! Thanksgiving is over and it's officially the Christmas season. I hope everyone had a great turkey day. If you dared to venture out for Black Friday, I hope the crowds were well-behaved where you live.
Sunday, I shared these Pumpkin Pancakes. They make a great breakfast or dinner. They're super easy to make and taste great with maple syrup and toasted nuts! Serve it with bacon or sausage and a side of fruit and you have a meal the whole family will enjoy!
Menu Plan Monday this week included a few new recipes to try. Tuscan Bean Soup and Chicken Hand Pies will probably be making a blog appearance in the future.
Tuesday's post was All my Bloggy Friends #22. There is still time to stop by and link up! The party closes tonight at 11:59 pm EST. Anything family-friendly ... including giveaways ... can be linked up!
I received free samples of Dimples BBQ Sauce and made this BBQ Chicken Bacon Pasta Bake. It was a nice change from regular casseroles .... and if you still have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, it would be a great way to use it up!
This Pesto Chicken and Gnocchi Soup combines some of my family's favorite ingredients - pesto sauce, chicken and gnocchi! I have tried a few different versions of this soup, but this one remains my favorite. It's easy, delicious and full of flavor!
Yesterday, I shared an easy homemade Sloppy Joe recipe and I talked about Lunch Ladies. This is one of my husband's favorite meals. The Bible says man cannot live on bread alone, but I bet if you threw some Sloppy Joe meat on it, Brian would sure try (and live with the Word of God too, of course!)
