It is going to be a fun road. I learned something today though—that I do not have a lot of things in my kitchen. I am wondering now how I ever managed to make a meal that was not previously frozen. This is all of the things that I bought from the grocery store today. Please keep in mind that this is only for this … [Read more...]
