Oooo double post! Nate is out of town for work, Noah is napping, and I don't feel the need to do laundry, clean the kitchen, or any of the other things more productive than blogging...so, double post! A few weeks ago, over Easter weekend we drove up to Huntington Beach to visit Ginger and the kids at the Hyatt. We played at the pool, ate all of their leftover pool side lunch (delicious nachos!), and went down the slides way too many times. We had so much fun! Thanks Holidays for letting us crash your vacation!
In March, Nate and I went to a "date night" cooking class a few blocks from our house. I have always wanted to make homemade pasta, but didn't want the mess in my own kitchen, so I thought a cooking class was the perfect place to learn. The class was so much fun, and full of so much information, plus we got a few local restaurant recommendations from the French Chef they had on staff. We made Mushroom Lasagna, Gnocci in a Bolognese sauce, Spinach Ravioli, and a Chicken Zucchini Fettucini Alfredo. Everything tasted delicious, and making pasta is NOT THAT HARD! Who knew?
