Hey hey, friendly faces! How’s your weekend going so far?
Have you had a chance to check out my gluten-free bread pudding recipe and enter the giveaway for a chance to win some gluten-free goodies of your own?? You’ve still got plenty of time, but I highly suggest that you do yourself a favour whip up a batch of that pudding — mine’s long gone, but I’ve already been “encouraged” (read: bribed) to make another, so that’s what Sunday afternoon is looking like for me.
As for the rest of my weekend, it’s been good. A coffee date with a friend. A trip to the farmers’ market. A few shopping splurges. Plenty of time in the gorgeous weather…. and dinner with the family on the agenda for tonight. I hope your day is looking equally as good, and if you find yourself with any down time, be sure to check out some of the posts in this week’s link love — plenty of good reads in there!
