Feel free to shun me after I admit this, but I don’t like peanut noodles.  I see them all over and I see everyone freaking out over them.  I’ve even tried a couple different recipes because they look so good but I never liked them.  Weird, right? I’m a huge fan of peanut butter and […]

Do you ever get those days where every time you look at the clock another hour is gone?  I’m having one of those today.  I keep a tally of all the things that still need to be done in the day and today it seems to be getting longer rather than shorter as I get […]

I know I mention the size of our town quite frequently… But here I go again…  We just recently got a Thai food restaurant and everyone was talking about it.  You’d think it was the most exciting thing ever.  But rather than pay way too much for way too little and not know what’s in […]
