It’s totally dip season.

roasted butternut squash spinach dip I

Dip season is when you have seven holiday parties to attend or that dreaded potluck at work and you’re just like, what the heck can I bring other than a sandwich ring? Or the I-forgot-about-the-party-cookies that you grabbed on the way that come in a plastic container with lots of red and green sprinkles. Or that bottle of wine, to go with the 17 other bottle of wine at the party. Or!

Hey hey hey! It’s the freaking WEEKEND. I am so excited. What are you up to? What are your plans?

We are going to start decorating a bit for the holidays – I KNOW I know, it’s kinda early, but now that I have Max it takes me approximately 56 times longer to do everything in my life. True story.

Please tell me you’re going to make a massive batch of apple cider sangria and apple cider margaritas? ALSO! All week long we’ve been sharing a full Thanksgiving dinner over on the pioneer woman, and I made this delicious pecan pie tart. It was practically impossible to not stand over it and eat it with a fork. SO good.

P.S. – did you see I shared the first holiday gift guide of the season? More coming this weekend!

P.P.S. you can find things to do with your Turkey Day leftovers right here and here, plus I’ll share more in a few days.
