October 14, 2020   6 Comments

The best thing to order at Subway is the intersection of what you like in a sandwich and the healthiest choice.

I know I have been getting tired of cooking. Actually, it is in’t the cooking so much as the pots, pans, and general mess that I then have to clean up after I cook. My family does a good job helping out but I am still tired of it all. My husband cooks half the time and I am still fed up!
