I hope your new year is off to a good start! I am so excited for 2016 as I enter my third year of this blog.
We had a lovely four-day weekend. On New Year’s Day I made a delicious Roasted Pork with Sauerkraut recipe from Land O’Lakes. It had apples and onions and the kraut was flavored with a little brown sugar and maple syrup. For lunch yesterday I made a pork reuben with some homemade 1000 Island Dressing (ketchup, relish and mayo) and the sauerkraut. Delish!
Enjoy this round-up of Worthy Reads from around the web.
