Zelda Hopkins


I will tell you a secret but you can't tell. my Jose is a very pickey eater. Well I made Spaghetti Squash with tomatoes and told him it was Spaghetti with tomatoes on it. He loved it so I keep my mouth shut. Its like giving v-8 juice to someone or Fusion that taste like fruit but there veggies in it.
