This post is not so much about cooking and food, but I felt it necessary to include in my little journal series.
I'm a little behind on writing these, so my apologies if I seem to just bomb several posts. I cannot believe we have been doing this for almost a year!

We do occasionally have junk food nights or eat fried things. And there are a few things I haven't taken to making on … Continue reading Gross Things I Ate As A Kid
