I got myself a new set of cookware. Yep, I got a new set of pots and pans. I’m gonna use that new set to make the most magnificent meals. First: canned bean soup with just the right amount of water dumped in. Second: scrambled eggs with milk and sardines. Third: pimentos and prunes. The list goes on! Please stop by and try one of my creative recipes. Tonight, we’re having kale and mashed potatoes with fish sauce, gnocchi, and snappy grillers. Mmmmm!
See you tonight?
