Anyone try these? My husband picked these up at Wegmans on a whim and I had them for dinner last night. Wow, so good! I didn't even know they existed. They are thin wheat noodles, similar to angel hair pasta. But they only take like 2 minutes to... Read more

An unsparky week
Monday, April 26, 2010      9 comments

I'm back from a week of visiting my folks, eating a lot, not exercising and rarely logging into Spark. I guess you could call it a vacation from pretty much everything that comprises my usual routine. Baby was with me, but my mom was with us so ... Read more
