Paleo in a Pinch

Well, Hello There

It’s no secret our household is crazy {like, really crazy} about the Portland Trailblazers. In fact, we’ve only missed one game this season.

You’ll have to pardon my absence for a short time. I’m dealing with some vertigo issues, relating to an inner ear infection. Remember last weeks Facebook ear/sinus post?
