What a busy weekend! I didn’t go on-line at all! But I wanted to share a great recipe I found from Fitness Magazine. I wasn’t able to download my pics because as I was downloading them, I have no more space on my computer!
Maybe it has something to do with the 8,000 pictures I have stored on it! So, tonight, I am going to have to delete a bunch of stuff I don’t need so I can keep downloading more pictures!
This is a super easy recipe, great for a picnic or a great side when grilling out.
