Week 339 Menu + Giveaway Winner

We miss Chuck’s Donuts. When we first moved to our new house, we tried a donut shop nearby that looked promising. Sadly, it was not good at all. There’s another donut shop even closer to our house simply called “DONUTS.” We gave them a try this weekend and they were delicious! Maybe not quite Chuck’s, but close. It will certainly do! Because, you know, living near a good donut shop is of the utmost importance.

I fly to the east coast with the kids tomorrow! I then turn right around and fly to Chicago on Tuesday to go throw our party SocialLuxe Lounge. It’s going to be quite a week, so please send lots of happy travel vibes my way!

As a result of all this traveling, I have no menu this week. But just because I won’t be in the kitchen doesn’t mean you won’t be! Please post your menu for the week, especially since I am providing zero inspiration!

Also, I need to announce the winner of the Libby’s giveaway! The randomly-selected winner is…drumroll…

Stephanie P, who said “That galette looks gorgeous, as do the trays, thanks for the giveaway!”

Congrats, Stephanie! And thank you, Libby’s!

Now, get posting your menus! 🙂
