It's now been a year since Rob gifted me this laptop. I've probably posted 100 recipes since then. It's hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close! I don't know about y'all, but my family always has a specific meal for New Year's Day. It's a tradition and it's supposed to bring you… Continue reading Shrimp and Greens Stew
It feels like I have a short work-week this week when I really don't. I'm leaving Friday as soon as I get off work to fly to Montana and spend the holidays with my family.
