Mid-eastern style spaghetti squash. My kid told me to try the squash but not to use it like pasta. She thought it was a waste of a good vegetable. I agree. I pulled some recipes up and made my own. Darned if I don't think it's pretty good! I... Read more

Mental toughness....at 5:30 in the morning about as tough as I get is trying to drink my coffee with a splash of milk instead of a couple of tablespoons! But I contemplate. I can't get all fired up and Rah-Rah about anything. I am a slow burn... Read more
