Asparagus Ribbon Salad

“Mama… Look at all of the asparagusses!! Can I pick them?”

This summer is going to be the summer of the garden, though it’s not exactly my garden.

For the past few years, we’ve had a small garden in our backyard. I’ve grown a few tomatoes, peppers, and herbs in three small raised beds. But, this year, we’ll be gardening on a slightly larger scale. Continue Reading

I’ve started this blog post more times than I can count.

My husband and I agree on a lot of things. Cereal is not one of them.

More specifically, we disagree on the amount of milk that should be added to a bowl of cereal.

My husband likes a little cereal with his milk. If the cereal is drowning and soggy, he’s a happy camper.

On the other hand, I like as little milk with my cereal as possible. In fact, I’m perfectly fine to snack on cereal with no milk at all. I prefer it.

I will also eat it as quickly as possible in order to reduce the likelihood of the cereal getting soggy. I don’t do soggy. Continue Reading
