Weekending in New England

09/19/2016 4 Comments

Did everyone enjoy this gorgeous weekend?! I had an event to work on Friday and Saturday, which had perfect September weather and apple cider donuts, so I was thrilled.


Although the real highlight of my weekend was the official start of football season at the home opener of the New England Patriots. I love the tailgating, the food, the company and the patriots. We squeaked out a win so that made the whole day even better! I enjoy watching football for so many reasons, but the most important reason is that it’s a great way to spend time with my extended family. Rooting on the Patriots has always been a family bonding activity and I’m thankful for it.



I made a new recipe from Tasty by Buzzfeed and I’m so happy it was a hit. Seriously, is anyone else obsessed with watching these videos?! I am! I can sit for hours scrolling through all of them because of how easy to make they look and how yummy.



I forgot to take a picture when they were done cooking, unfortunately this was the best one I could come up with.

For more New England fun check out my posts about places to eat and things to do.
