I came home to a warm welcome!
I think they missed me 🙂
After a MASSIVE unpack, I put the house back together and before long it was dinnertime.
Matt hadn’t eaten a zucchini, squash and a little bit of pepper, so we turned them into spaghetti along with a few tomatoes from the garden and a new sauce.
Nanny’s Cucina sent me this jar a few weeks ago and tonight was the perfect opportunity to try it. If you go to their website, you can see sweet Nanny herself. She must be quite the cook! I’m going to stretch it out throughout the week into a few more tomatoey dishes as we finish out our grocery budget for the month.
The sauce was quite good – and it did have a little kick to it!! It tasted fresh and homemade, although not as good as my mom’s sauce!
The dish included whole wheat pasta, the veggies, sauce and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
We attempted al fresco dining because there’s a nice warm breeze out, but not two minute in I was swarmed by mosquitoes 🙁 Too bad we live right on a creek.
After dinner we watched the movie New In Town with Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. I found it quite humorous and sweet. I like Renee a lot 🙂 A tad bit cliche, but it was that kind of movie so I forgive it.
Not two hours after dinner I found myself with a growling stomach. I settled it with some Mix My Granola in soy milk, but since my photos were already uploaded I didn’t snap one. Just imagine my little bucket bowl half filled with cereal 😉
Can’t wait to settle into my own bed. Matt changed the sheets before my arrival and the bed is perfectly made! The bakery is closed on Mondays, so I’m glad to have tomorrow to spend together, even if I do have lots of work to do on the ole ‘puter.
