Weekend Dish

Lately I’ve noticed lots of my favorite bloggers doing weekly (or occasional) weekend posts that are a little more personal than just a photo and a recipe. I love seeing an extra glimpse into their life and I thought it might be fun to do something similar around here. I can’t promise that I will be able to keep up with it every week, but whenever I have time I think it will be a nice way to stay connected. If you just come here for the food, feel free to skip this post but be sure to check back during the week for tasty recipes and yummy food photos!

First up, a recap of what went down on Sunny Side Up this week


Shells and Cheese with Kielbasa and Peas -A quick and easy weeknight dinner that’s sure to satisfy your whole family (pasta and meat lovers alike!)!


Chocolate Chip Muffins – Light and fluffy muffins studded with chocolate chips. AKA – the perfect second breakfast.

Next up, a recap of my week through Instagram-

This was technically last week, but I couldn’t resist sharing this picture! Last week I traveled to Boston to watch my cousin (along with many other dancers from my former school) dance in the World Championships for Irish Dancing. Someone caught this shot of my cousin during her second round and I’m obsessed! She danced well and even recalled at her first Worlds! So exciting.

This is a photo I took while enjoying a Chocolate Chip Muffin for my second breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚

And this is a familiar scene in my living room. Every night I put all the cat toys on top of the cat tree, every morning I wake up to the toys being sprawled across the living room. Funny, because they rarely play with them when we’re awake.

Yesterday I found this awesome new nail polish – at Kohl’s of all places! I’m super excited about it!

Pregnancy Update-

In case you missed the announcement – I’m pregnant! I am officially 18 weeks along and I feel really good! In week 16 we discovered that I have placenta previa so I’ve been trying to take it as easy as possibly, which is hard since I’m in the second trimester honeymoon phase and I have so much more energy! We also found out that we are having a girl! We are very excited!


Around the web –just a few post from fellow bloggers and sites I’ve been surfing lately.

Roasted Cauliflower Fettuccine – This just sounded so yummy to me!
Baby Love: A Baby Shower – Babies are always on my mind right now and this shower was just adorable! Great job, Kelsey!
Eggs Benedict con Queso – So this is actually not from this week, but, drool… just drool.
Baby Names – Because seriously, naming a new human is hard!
Bacon and Asparagus Pasta – Asparagus and I have had a thing lately. Absolutely loving it. And this has bacon. So, yeah.

That’s a wrap!

It may take me a few weeks to really get into a groove and decide what I like posting but I’m really excited to get a little more personal with my readers! That’s all for this week, but before I go, how was your week??
