  1. We have pasta every Sunday - it's always so easy to get the pot of water boiling and then figure out how we want to make it that night.

    1. We have it frequently on Sundays, too. It's an easy meal to make after church. Thanks for stopping by!


Each and every one of your comments means so much to me. I love to hear from friends both old and new. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world and thanks for taking the time to let me know you were here.
