Well, we've had snakes (a copperhead, even!) and lizards on our front porch this spring/summer. I'm not terribly fond of them. And then my son saw this in the corner of our front door frame. It might be hard to see, but it is indeed a black widow spider. I'd thought they only liked dark places, but, no, this one made her home on our south-facing porch.

And speaking of things that probably aren't the healthiest for you. . .
I have had an insane craving during this pregnancy for instant mashed potatoes. We NEVER make instant mashed potatoes, but a few weeks ago at Sam's Club, I gave in and bought a monster-sized box of them.
But what to serve with instant mashed potatoes when everything you have is frozen and the oven is broken? Hmmmmm. . .
How about something else that might be served in a cafeteria?
|Greasy (but quite tasty) hamburger gravy|
At least it was made with grass-fed beef and homemade bone broth, right? Right?!
|Plain Jane green beans|
This was definitely not my finest fancy dinner, but you wouldn't believe how the kids gobbled it up. And it completely satisfied my pregnancy craving. Well, I still want more mashed potatoes, but the box isn't empty yet.
What was your strangest pregnancy craving?
