Beef and Vegetable Soup

Dateline: A miserable Monday in February, just after Valentines Day, and quite a while before Easter.

Zoodle Soup With Spinach and Fresh Herbs

There’s nothing worse than trying to plan your next meal when you’re still stuffed full from the previous one.

I think all that frantic meowing was his way of saying “Man-father, are you serious? Stop. Please stop! STOP NOW! NOOOOOOO!
