Vegas claims not to like leftovers.
Both of us used to compete basically constantly ate leftovers.
At the prime of my meal prep, I was eating leftovers 7 meals a day, 7 days a week. I got used to it. Vegas got sick of it. She claims not to like leftovers.

Creamy hummus is the key to life.

I'm not an exhibitionist.
But I'll go to the exhibition.
Sunday was a gorgeous day in San Diego. It was 78 degrees, nice breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. You know, typical. I did what all Southern Californians do on a day like that and went to the beach. What wasn't SO typical was that … [Read More...]
