T.G.I.F. {Young Grasshopper's Featured 5}

This week sucked.
There, I said it.
Really it just sucked the life out of me.

A blog hop that I only wish I could have gotten my crap together to be a part of..... Katherine Martenelli featured a Black Bean & Corn Salsa that I am DYING to try.... check it out :)

 And last but in NO WAY least.... my one for good luck!

how did I not think of that?!?
I'll be trying this REAL soon!

HUGE Thank you to all for letting me repost****

Finally, Thank you SOOOO much to Jen at Love Food Cook Food for awarding me my second Kreative Blogger & Sunshine Awards.... thank you so much!

  1. I love your posts!!! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous recipes and your week with us!!! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day =))

  2. Yum yum and yum! And yum again :) Love the Featured 5!

    1. I'm thinking people don't use the word Yum enough.... I read an article that said to never use the word YUMMY in a blog.... I'm thinking that would be a sad day. YUM!!!!
