Hope you had an enjoyable weekend. We had such a wonderful time in Washington D.C. on Saturday. (Pics on Instagram.) And while we’re still in the mode of being in the car for hours at a time, we’re getting ready for a trip down to North Carolina towards the end of this week. We have some gifts to sew for little cousins, baking and packing to do, along with the week’s daily plans.
Here’s this week’s menu that makes my mouth water. The menu includes some of our reliable favorites with a few new recipes. And as you know, trying to use up what we have on hand before a trip. And as always, a list of our snacks and baking prep outlined below. Enjoy!
