I made a pot of spaghetti sauce today with fresh tomatoes and herbs from my garden. Pretty good. Especially with the zucchini I had as a side dish. Now, I've been binging Castle. I'm loving this show almost as much as I enjoyed Lucifer. It almost made me forget to write a blog tonight. (grin) … Continue reading A good evening
