From my sister.
Leigh over at Red Pony Farm tagged me yesterday, so here goes. I wanted to think about it a bit first, but the World Series is preventing me from much independent thinking right now. And from sleep. So here goes.... 1. I used to want to be a private detective. My best friend and I… Continue reading Tag, I’m It…8 Things You Don’t (or Might Not) Know About Me
In my slowly continuing recap of a meal we put together for Oct 13th, here are the 4th recipe I'm posting.
