Re: A headscratcher

Leftover spaghetti/pasta is great added to frittatas...

Leftover spaghetti didn't last long in our house as a kid and it was something you would fight for and ate cold!

Utahtea: We LOVE leftovers and we cook enough to HAVE leftovers.

Re: A headscratcher

As for the whole leftover argument in general, I'm actually pretty bummed when there aren't enough leftovers for my lunch the next day.

Re: If you're old enough...

Ouch. Sorry to hear about your surgery but it sounds like you are on the mend and putting me to shame with all the walking you have been doing recently.

Re: If you're old enough...

Utahtea,

I doubt whether you'll meet many 65 year olds who are as young as I am, in mind, body and spirit!

Re: "Student Debt Destroyed this Family's $$&qu

The 49-year-old Ipswich, Mass., schoolteacher and her husband, Peter, an electrical engineer, both went to college and graduate school.

Re: What did you do for Mom today?

I don't like Hallmark telling me what to do.
