Dress up your asparagus this season with a lemony pesto drizzled all over! This roasted lemony pesto asparagus will be a new favorite side dish!

what is it about watching childhood movies that evokes SO MANY MEMORIES?! omg, they were having a Toy Story marathon on tv this weekend and I can’t believe the first Toy Story came out 22 years ago. I was freaking 8 years old.

as I was watching it, there were so many little things I noticed and then some “terminology” that I definitely didn’t pick up when I was younger. Like, I definitely don’t remember myself knowing what Buzz meant when he asked Woody if he was mocking him. I don’t know, as weird as this all sounds, it’s just funny what you pick up when you watch it again at an older age. And not to mention what you find ridiculous — like how could someone’s mother not realize her son has explosives and is blowing up toys? LOL
