Spaghetti squash is something that my husband, Mr. P has been talking about for about a year. He loves spaghetti squash. I thought I was a traditionalist and only wanted to use pasta for my pasta dishes. The last time I had spaghetti squash I was probably in high school and have been avoiding it ever since. Boy was I wrong, and Mr. P was right (yep I actually admitted being wrong, write that down honey it doesn’t happen every day). The spaghetti squash turned out so delicious this is definitely going on my recipe repeat list! Continue reading “Tomato Sauce with Zucchini over Spaghetti Squash”
Happy Make It Monday everyone! I made my own makeup remover and cleansing pads this weekend. I came around to this little craft by happenstance. Do you ever forget that you tossed your flannel pajamas in the dryer again! Now the pajamas are all shrunk unevenly and uncomfortable to wear because of the shrinkage.

This weather, 10″ inches of snow today. It’s mid March and winter is not quite over here in Wisconsin, that means snowpants weather isn’t over either.

We have the most charming piano. I learned how to play on it when I was young and possibly someday at least one of my children will also learn how to play on the piano. Currently they enjoy using it to bang on the keys. Also to me and my mother’s dismay they enjoy driving their cars, dancing their figures, and landing their airplanes across the piano bench. We’ve tried to throw a nice colorful mat over it, but it slips right off. Occasionally with a small boy along for the ride!
My friends and Pinterest feed has been active with smoothie recipes. I thought I should find out what this bandwagon is all about. Hope you are interested to find out how easy it is to throw together a super yummy and nutritious drink for the morning. A few weeks ago we had very unusually warm weather for Wisconsin in February….it was 70 degrees! Beautiful, sunny, shorts weather. Now we are back to normal at 30 degrees in March with a smattering of snow on the grass.
Besides messing up our early budding trees and growing plants, it messed up my head. I got a sense of spring and a little of that spring into summer fever. When I think of summer I think of fresh fruit that we don’t tend to get this time of year because the season is not right for it.
