I used to write to-do lists before starting the day. Now I write chalkboards.
Go Niners! First game at the new stadium today! These pictures are old, but still good ones!
The boys are getting bigger. Don’t worry. I tell them every day to stop it.
I’m telling you, they’re the ones begging for boba every day. I have to limit it to once a week.
The sister and I braved the challenge of bringing the boys out to eat. It went well! a bit stressful and tiring, but we made it without a meltdown!
These sticky placemats were AWESOME. We could sprinkle some puffs and baby cheetos (they’re not really cheetos, don’t worry) on the mat and the boys could feed themselves. Adrian loves pho. He can eat anything.
Then we hung out outside of the restaurant. So hard to get both boys smiling so this was the best picture!
Here are some funny faces Adrian made while I was trying to get a picture of the boys.
After we tried putting the boys down for their afternoon nap, we found them like this. Cute you say? Well if you were there, you’d say STINKY! The boy had poopy diapers which prevented them from napping, but they were happy campers anyway. Silly boys.
We went to a local baseball game last week. Fun! Can’t wait to bring the boys.
Look who was at the game!!!
I usually don’t do this, but I created something without a recipe! A co-worker shared a quick and easy pasta recipe and I just had to try it. I’m calling it: Pink Pasta. This dish is nice because the sauce is fairly light, which works out for someone like my mom who is not a big fan of red sauces.
Pasta (I used shells, but would love to use bow-tie next time)
1 lb Italian sausage (I got the fresh one that looks like ground beef, not in the casing)
5-6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 onion, diced
Half pint heaving whipping cream
One can diced tomatoes (preferable PETITE diced, but regular works, too)
Red chili pepper flakes
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Heat oil in a medium sized skillet. Saute garlic and onion until onion is translucent.
Add Italian sausage. Cook until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Add whipping cream and diced tomatoes (do not drain tomatoes). Simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add pasta and a generous sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Mix well. Simmer another 5 minutes.
Add sea salt and additional red pepper flakes to taste.
How was it? I really liked it, although it was missing something. Hubs and I agreed it should have had chicken! I also am not a fan of tomatoes so I’m glad I enjoyed the meal. I did pick out the tomatoes though, whoops! I also want to add some CHEESE next time. I think it’ll be FABULOUS after the addition of chicken & cheese.
