Punch Pops

30 punch pops 02

Neil and the boys got me a few fun things for Christmas: The book and ice pop molds were on my wish list, but still, they’ll never convince me that they weren’t selfishly-motivated with these purchases. It reminds me of the year I got Neil an answering machine because I wanted one. Or the year […]

Spaghetti Dogs

01 dogs 4

I first saw this on Pinterest with no source given.  I found it repulsive in a can’t-avert-my-eyes kind of way, and so I google image searched my way to the original.  I showed it to the one person in this house (other than me) who likes both pasta and hot dogs, and he was all […]
