I smell carrots!

DKM – you have carrot breath! Hand them over and no baseboards will be hurt.

What do you do when you have a fridge of stuff that’s almost past it’s prime? You make Fridge Sauce!

…and then you dump it in a baking dish with pasta, cheese and other gooey stuff to make baked pasta. Good for a cold Saturday night.
