Must Be Tuesday

I can’t remember if I have shared this before. If I have, it bears repeating. If I haven’t, today seems like a good day for it. Advertisements

Turkey Time

I was at a church dinner Saturday, and this was one of the desserts on offer. Or so I was told – I’m not a dessert person and didn’t even look to see what was available. Someone did bring this back to my table, so I snapped the pictures before it was eaten. Just for […]
