Paper Hell – Save the Trees!

I just feel like ranting. I’m facing mounds of paper that need to be organized and I hate it. Bills, notices, and don’t get me started on the medical paperwork connected to Obamacare. I Love Trees! I just went out and bought another box of file folders to organize all this paper and it made…

Fast & Easy Eggplant

I have an Eggplant fetish. No one else in my house likes it but I just can’t get enough of it. Stir fried Eggplant with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, lots of garlic and red pepper flakes. Lots of basil too, a little oregano and some black pepper. Mmmm… 1 cup of cubed or cooked Eggplant has…
