The Weekend Update

+ Date night at La Granja de Oro where I discovered the best dish known to man, lomo saltado. Basically it’s beef strips sauteed in onions and peppers, on top of a bed of french fries, and then smothered in gravy….with some rice on the side. Totally fit for a Peruvian lumberjack. It basically put me to sleep.
+ Drinks with our potential new neighbors!
+ Remember this post about New Year’s Resolutions? Well consider item #4 halfway crossed off because I painted our kitchen lemongrass green!

+ Happy Birthday Kathleen! Homemade pho FTW!
+ Happy Birthday Charlie Brown! Costco pizza and vanilla mousse birthday cake FTW!
+ Happy Housewarming Charlie + Clarissa! For those who don’t know Charlie and Clarissa, they are basically Rob and I’s doppelganger couple.
+ Two hour play-doh sesh with Alina – It must have been pretty epic because when we left she yelled “Uncle Robbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb!!!!!!” and started to cry. She also calls me “Timi” now but I think it’s because she has problems saying “K” sounds. I read her a book and she called a cow a “tow” and a cat a “tat.” We tried to take a selfie with her but this photo was the best we could do.

+ Studio 504 brunch with the sister and a few other friends. We had mimosas, 1/3 pound of bacon each, and coconut macadamia nut waffles. Kassie brought over her American doll that she named Mickey and they wore matching hairstyles which Kassie described as an ” Orthodox Jew ponytail. Because it is very reserved in the front, but… party in the back!” AKA, my niece is a huge Pitch Perfect fan. Kassie is very interested in all of Rob’s action figures and she always sits and looks at them and asks tons of questions. I could tell Rob was touched because he instinctively reached out to her, ruffled her hair, hugged her and kissed her on the head. I swear my ovaries released an egg at that very moment because it was the cutest thing ever.
+ Spaghetti night! I’m normally not a spaghetti fan but I recently found a recipe for homemade pasta sauce that makes me want to eat it every, single day (no lie it was the second time we ate spaghetti this week!). Rob ate three bowls! We tried to watch the Golden Globes but honestly I’m not much of a fan of award shows. Instead I’ll probably spend a good ten minutes pouring over all of the recaps on Buzzfeed this morning.

  1. Are you going to share this amazing pasta sauce recipe? I also used to not eat much pasta due to a very meh feeling towards sauces.
