Menu Week of February 1, 2016

Starting with a base […]

When I stopped posting the menu I would *sometimes* type one out in a word document or […]

Wintering in Oklahoma

ID-100221932

We’ve gone south for the winter!

I’m pretty sure this makes us snowbirds.

Welcome to September!

There is something about September that I absolutely love. I think I view September along the lines of the new year and the ability to have a fresh start. Back to school time and a change of season is likely the reason. I’m often inclined to try to improve my organization skills, do some extra […]
