0 Comments

I was browsing through my Pinterest today, and I found a great little pin from our friends at Wine Folly.

Sanity? What sanity? Not today my friends! I had all intentions of doing some type of fancy schmancy dinner recipe for you guys today. The type that makes your eyes happy and drool form in your mouth. Something slow roasted and covered in a pan sauce. Yum! But, guess what. Somewhere shortly after waking up life happened.
