What to do Weekends #250 ~ Happy November!

Hi friends and Welcome to What to do Weekends! Hello November! So excited to finally get some Fall like weather here in Northern California. There's even a chance of rain, that has a lot of us extremely excited, present company included. :) This is my favorite time of the year. I'm so grateful that you have come to join in the fun at this party!
I got back to blogging myself this week and shared my locally famous recipe for Almond Orange Biscotti Recipe that is seriously far better than any I have ever tasted in any cafe. If you have a chance click on over and have a look.

  1. Thanks for hosting and wish I had a slice of your biscotti now!

    1. Thanks Suzy! I'll bring the Biscotti if you'll make me some of your Cheese Sausage Cabbage Casserole! YUM! :)

  2. Thanks for the party, Theresa! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. We had hints of fall earlier this week, but it's back to the 80s now. I'm really hoping for a drop in temperature! Your biscotti looks great. Going to click over and have a look.

    1. Awe, thank you so much Beverly. I'm good. I hope you have a great weekend too! I have no idea how long will be cooler, it's still 70's and could go up at any time. I hope you get some fall weather soon. Thank you for coming and sharing here. I'll try and join you this Sunday!
