I finally got back to my MacBook and am able to post a few pictures from the weekend. First, some pics of the new baby and family: It looks like Chelsea had a toddler!

"Beef" and "savory " kinda go together already. I've been watching my diet closer so today is a "free" day hence the spuds. In fact, the … Continue reading Good Thing I Bought the “Savory” Beef Gravy…

Getting the Scotty Out!
