Sleepy Thursday

I have been so tired today… yawning and barely able to keep my eyes open. It is as if I have had a hang over all day… without the fun from the night before! I have no idea why I am feeling this way. My food and my exercise have been good. Maybe I just …

New Toy

I ordered a cool new kitchen toy last week and it finally came. The spiral cutter… it will turn any vegetable into noodles! It is easy to use and easy to clean. It turned zucchini into delicious little strands that you can twist around a fork. I sauteed it in olive oil and garlic. Finally, …

Thursday – a day late
