Italian Pasta Salad

It’s hard to write a post about warm, sunny days ahead.  Today we experienced a windy day with the sky turning a nice burnt orange color.  These are the days where chap stick stays in your purse and you don’t venture outside unless you have to pick up kids.  People in the rest of...

Nacho Bites

The school year is winding down for us and I can’t say that I’m all that thrilled about it.  Yes, I said that.  I look forward to getting work done and having a little peace and quiet every few hours.  With three kids home that means more yelling, more fighting and more children screaming,...
