Splice The Mainbrace

I first heard this term on International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19th).  Originally it was an order for one of the most difficult and dangerous repair jobs aboard a ship.  The crew members who followed through would be awarded an extra ration of rum or grog afterwards.  The term eventually morphed to mean a celebratory drink on special occasions.

Hit The Sauce

After all of the turkey leftovers and extended family togetherness this past week,  I'm ready to "hit the sauce"!  ;)   Seriously, it is time for a menu change.  I make my own pasta sauce that we all love over spaghetti.  Yum.
