  2. Here's mine: GOODNESS GRACIOUS SNAKES ALIVE! How the H did HE get in here?
    I'd pass out after I stopped screaming or not. If you've followed me for very long on FB, I take lots of snake photos.

    2. The snake pic brought me in! Interest peaked! I had 5 of those buggers, Ball Pythons; very docile…At any rate, this recipe looks great!

    3. I have to admit this is the first time I've heard "pythons" and "docile" in one sentence.

  5. You are SO right about the kid! I can see my boys in a few years having this exact reaction. Ok, maybe not my oldest boy. But the baby? He'd be all over it.

    1. So funny how our kids are raised in the same house yet have such different personalities. I think my two would react as differently as your two.

    1. We love it too. Sometimes you want a hearty, heavy pasta dish and sometimes you just want something a little lighter. This one is perfect for those lighter nights.
