And a reminder to always try new things.
This: is corn spaghetti. It’s gluten free, not that that needs to be a thing, but it’s a thing for some people, and it might have benefits for the rest of us. Either way, it’s good to change things up. I was skeptical at first, watching this glob of “noodles” boil in what looked like watered down polenta. I wasn’t sure it would go with the vodka sauce that we also acquired at Trader Joe’s. And yet, lo and behold, when I put that first bite in my mouth, it had a distinct texture that I thought was unique to semolina laden goodness. It had a slight corn taste, but nothing overwhelming, and definitely something that should be kept in the dinner rotation. Two thumbs up.
Other things…. This has been stuck in my head lately, and I really like it. I appreciate the irony of identifying with a song about American Kids while I grew up in a household saturated with Bulgarian traditions, but I did grow up here, and this song does speak to me. I like how it’s unique, too. I can’t really explain it from a musical standpoint, but it seems minor in a different way than typical country songs.

Hyde Park may be little, but we’re not slacking in the fireworks department. Even if it is 6 days early, happy PieAndBeer day! #pioneerday #utah (at City of Hyde Park)
