Yesterday, I wrote about repurposing…or Making Do With What We Have. Ironically, that’s just what I had to do when making supper later. The result is this deliciously easy Spaghetti Soup!

My daughter has not been feeling well for some time. We’ve taken her to the doctor, have had tests done, and according to them she is just fine. Try telling her that! She doesn’t feel fine at all.

That’s exactly how this Sriracha Egg Salad came about, actually. I mentioned… Continue Reading
