The normal Saturday activities occurred:
Run with Bangs Friend first thing in the morning. I tell ya, running with other people makes the time go by so fast.
And then hours of randomness that included going to the mall and on a hunt for the perfect piñata.
I made one of Billy’s favorite foods for a dinner we went to at night. It is called Beach Pasta. His mom used to make it for them when they would go to the beach as kids and so it brings back good memories for him. I love it because it tastes really fresh and who doesn’t love large amounts of noodles. (PS if you are smart you won’t add the olives but I did just because B$ does like them but I picked mine out).
I have no measurements of anything but this is how we make it. Cooked penne pasta tossed with fresh cooked corn on the cob pieces, thin sliced carrots, celery, sliced black olives, chopped ham, cheese (we used mozzarella), olive oil, salt and pepper. We made enough for 40 people. We are going to be eating this for the next week straight.
Just hanging out at the table eating pretzel thins. We had those with tabouli, amazing.
It was our really good friend’s birthday party and so we had a bbq party to celebrate.
The corn on the cob deserves it’s own picture because it was just that good.
We wanted to do something creative for her party (the gorgeous blonde) and so I brought a piñata and filled it with candy. It was a very good idea.
Brooke took a few swings too. And now I have enough tootsie rolls for a while (you have to admit, the flavored tootsie rolls are actually really good).
There is just something so special about birthday cakes. F.u.n.f.e.t.t.i. for the win.
And a family picture with the side of Brooke’s head.
PS in just a few days it is our FOUR YEAR anniversary. Pretty darn crazy. We are pretty much experts now.
What kind of cake did you have for your last birthday?
Olives: gross or delicious (no fighting in the comments… we have to respect each other’s opinions)?
How was your weekend run? Long? Race? Easy and relaxed?
