swine flu’d


Accidentally got swine flu and had serious malaise (an actual symptom, promise!) for a few days there. So my plans to actually make food that wasn’t pasta and sauce from a jar were somewhat foiled. However: I do have a few new things. 1. We got a tiny tiny kitten! Her name is Morris and […]
