It's the Weekend Review!

Wow! Is it Sunday already? I am NOT ready for the week to start!

Earlier this week I was heartbroken to hear that a good friend of mine and her husband are divorcing. It hit me especially hard when I think about that they got married exactly one week after my hubby and I. That is 13 1/2 years of marriage! Ugh, makes me sick to my stomach. Anyways, we had her and the three kiddos over for a Fall BBQ. It was sooo much fun, the food was amazing, and the Just Dance 3 was hilarious!

If I have not mentioned it before, I will now, my husband is an AMAZING cook!!! He actually taught me how. So, he made smoked ribs with a dry good. All I know is he puts cinnamon, cocoa, and coffee in his rubs. He also made a smoked (whole) chicken for the main course and I made a beautiful spinach and romaine salad with tons of fresh veggies and 2 Pinterest side dishes:)

Here they are:
Loaded Baked Potato Salad
Oh My Goodness! This was wonderful! I was very sad when it was gone. This is definitely a go to side dish now:)

And Cinnamon Chile Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This was much better then I anticipated. I actually liked them. (Not much of a sweet potato person, but still had some left from Bountiful Baskets).

These two recipes are definitely worth a try:)

Have a blessed week bloggy friends!
