Weekend Round-Up {5-11-13}

lbgc - weekend round-up

I have totally lacked the motivation to do much of anything this week. I have a whole list of things I wanted to get done ..... and really, I only managed to get through all the kids' toys and clean the carpets downstairs. It's sad. I guess that means next week's list just got that much longer, huh?

I've been thinking about changing up some things on the blog .... But haven't really decided what I want to do yet. I've thought about doing away with Menu Plan Monday .... because truthfully, does anyone really care what we are eating this week? Exactly. Not to mention, some weeks, it just doesn't go down as planned. I end up carrying stuff over or completely changing the menu ....... so, don't be surprised if that disappears in the near future! ;) As far as other changes, well - I haven't really decided yet!

Here's a look at what happened around the blog this week:

let's get social 3
Let's Get Social Sunday - we're now on 9, yes - *nine* blogs every week! If you missed us last week, be sure to join us tomorrow morning at 6 am Eastern time when the party goes live! We'll be linking up and meeting new friends - and we'd love to have YOU join us!

lbgc - menu plan monday
Lots of great recipes on this past week's menu! Expect to see a few new recipes on the blog from this week's Menu Plan Monday! Some of the meals will be carrying over to next week though ...... Also, this series may be going away in the near future!

Don Tomas Coffee Vanilla Frappe

On Monday I also shared a recipe for Vanilla Frappe .... and a Don Tomas Coffee GIVEAWAY! That's right! Be sure to stop by for your chance to win one bag of the winner's choice - dark, medium or light roast and choice of whole bean or ground! The giveaway ends tonight!

lbgc - all my bloggy friends2
Linda and I hosted All My Bloggy Friends on Tuesday. The party is still going strong if you want to link up! The party closes at 11:59 pm Eastern time tonight! Be sure to join us on Tuesday morning at 7 am Eastern time for the next par-tay! We try our best to share the social media love with some of the links that are shared at our party! So come on over and join the fun! :)

Sausage & Potato Bake
This Sausage & Potato Bake is one of my "go-to" meals when I don't know what to make. It's also quite economical!

15 Mother's Day Recipes
I also shared a Mother's Day Round-Up from All My Bloggy Friends .... My bloggy friend, Linda from With A Blast, also shared a round-up of her own! Be sure to check them out if you haven't already! :)

Broccoli and Cheese Soup in Homemade Bread Bowls
I don't know about you, but there's something comforting in a bowl of soup and homemade bread. On Thursday, I shared this Broccoli and Cheese Soup in Homemade Bread Bowls.

Beef and Bean Nachos
Beef and Bean Nachos ... I may have a nachos-fetish going on right now. Don't be surprised if you see another nachos recipe in the near future! ;)


Five things that I pinned this week that I think you should see too:

1. Italian Skillet Eggs from My Turn for us - I have never thought to combine a marinara sauce with eggs .... but  think it sounds wonderful! Evelyn has reassured me that I will love it! :)
2. Pico de Gallo Chicken Sandwich from All She Cooks - Another combo I never thought of - but I think it sounds wonderful!
3. Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza from Sugar Dish Me - Delish! I love everything about this pizza!
4. Toasted Coconut Pudding Pie from Mostly Homemade Mom - Love this!
5. Ben & Jerry's Copycat Choco-Chip Ice Cream from Kakemilla - Brian would love this ....... ok, and so would I! :)

Most pinned post this week: Italian Pasta Salad
Most popular post this week: Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I hope you enjoy! Shared at these fun parties!
