I have a love-hate relationship with spaghetti squash…..
I love eating it but I hate cooking it.
First – it’s hard.

Something to put lobster in (shudder)?!?!? Why would I do that to lobster?!?
When I’m feeling a bit under the …
I suppose one could call it an early Christmas present…..
I’d been planning / hoping to get a new computer sometime in the next year or so. Mine was 4 years old and excruciatingly slow. Okay, maybe I have too many programs open at the same time, but that’s the way I like to work.
