Weekend Roundup...

Friday- Busch Gardens
We spent a wonderful day in Williamsburg at our favorite amusement park. They go all out to celebrate Fall and Halloween. I wanted to share a little bit of it with you guys. You wouldn't believe how many pumpkins they put out. Hundreds and hundreds and they are everywhere. Look on the roof in the second picture.

Saturday- Rain
Saturday was a day to stay in. I don't have any pictures for this one. I promise you don't want to see me after a day on the couch.

Sunday- Spit and Bella Make a Pot Roast
Sunday we feasted. My buddy over at Country Girl on the Chesapeake Bay- aka Spit was making one too. We laughed at our recipes. Crockpot, roast, me- onions, she- Lipton and some slow cooking. And voila. Okay- this time I added a can of baby carrots too. Yummy!

Please note the spread below is for just me and the Bella Fella- aka hubby. We will be having leftovers for the rest of the week. Yes, I peeled a 10lb bag of potatoes for that big bowl! We had green bean casserole and pineapple dressing too.

Are you hungry now? I am! Have a great Monday!

BG is the cleanest, prettiest amusement park I've ever seen. KD doesn't even come close!

Your meal looks delicious. I'll be over after work to help you clean up those leftovers. Spit has more mouths to feed, so I won't bother her tonight....she may not have any leftovers!!!

It's been a long time since I've been to Busch Gardens. My husband and I took my parents on a trip to Williamsburg in the early 80's, and everyone enjoyed the day we spent at Busch Gardens.

Your dinner looks delicious! And how great to have the leftover to enjoy.
