As I said in my last post on Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies, we had friends over for Nacho Night last night. That definitely called for sangrias. I looooove sangrias! So I whipped some up.

Slow Cooker Saturday: (Not Really) Baked Beans

We had family and friends over after Anna's dance recital tonight for burgers. I needed a side dish and I love baked beans with burgers.
