In our house, the purchase of a random kitchen tool implies the immediate preparation of food by said tool. Ie. 2 months ago, Will gave me a candy thermometer and for 2 months I’ve been hearing “Where’s my caramel?” I have no candy making experience what so ever. It really intimidated me. We have been […]
We’ve been going to the Allen Public Library for an entire year now and I just discovered they have music cds for kids. Ridiculous, right?
