Mustache Has Been Slashed Away!

Okay, remember Movember from this post? Well, Nate kept his mustache until late Sunday night.  He committed to keeping the handlebar stash until the end of hunting season, so now I have 2 reasons to party.  No more mustache going up my nose every time I lean in for a smooch and no more deadContinue reading “Mustache Has Been Slashed Away!”

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Source: Stephanie Cooks Nate and I were super tired last night.  This weekend was considered very active for us, a wedding Friday night and the company Super Bowl party Sunday night.  So to say our day at work was dragging would be an understatement!  For dinner we had tortellini salad and cooked chicken, that’s it. Continue reading “Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Roasted Asparagus & Penne with a White Wine Cream Sauce

I threw this recipe together on Friday night.  I was at work thinking about what I wanted for dinner and this just popped into my head.  This dish is a little fancier than my other recipes so far, and I accidentally made it vegetarian… but hey, you don’t always need meat!  It would be perfectContinue reading “Roasted Asparagus & Penne with a White Wine Cream Sauce”
