Back by popular demand (from at least three people!)…
Here are Monday’s entrees entries for the 25 word or less recipes. I will endeavour to publish these updates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We’ll see how many I can come up with! And I do hope I encourage you to come up with some of your own – it’s rather a fun exercise!
Oh… did I mention that I don’t get out much?! heh heh
