I Made Glue

In the interest of being transparent and real, brace yourselves:  most of the time I’m making this up as I go along. For example, tonight we are having a potluck dinner themed “food from a book or movie”.  I picked spaghetti and meatballs from Lady and The Tramp thinking that would be a super easy
