Lately, I’ve been getting back into the Sims 4. It’s been about a year since I played with my virtual family, made up of an incredibly ginger me and two randoms. So, instead of picking up where I left off, I decided to start fresh.

Last Tuesday, I had an unexpected adventure.
I went to make some dinner. We hadn’t used any potatoes in a while, and I had found a new recipe for garlicky potato wedges.
I was pretty excited about it, and Shane was too. Especially since I’ve been testing out new recipes on him, the poor man.
