Roasted Butternut Squash Pizza {Tablespoon Tuesdays}

My first baby shower is this weekend. (!!!) Seriously, how are we already here? WELL, I can tell you. Did you like that all bolded and italicized? I wanted to make it a bigger font but I don’t know how. Maybe a bright green color? Oh ick, no. Anyway, it’s because I’m having 37 million […]

Mission accomplished! We successfully managed to scrounge up whatever was left in the fridge, pantry and garden for a quick “gettin’-out-of-town-for-a-few-days” dinner.
