Ohhh the joys of unpacking

Can you believe our wonderful packers & movers used THIS MUCH packing paper?  ……




Oh wait, there’s more….


I got lost!


Fun stuff.  This is prime for the making of a Texas snowball fight.  I guess that was something silly they taught us in gradeschool PE with clumps of newspapers, but it stuck.



But we sure are enjoying the return of our kitchen and yummy lunches.

I made Spaghetti Carbonara for the first time (mine with fresh swiss chard from the farmer’s market)


I found the awesome recipe (modified to fit our semi-empty pantry!) here.  Somehow I was not aware that the process of making spaghetti carbonara involves swirling just-drained pasta in raw egg, pepper, and cheese while the egg cooks from the heat of the pasta.  Cool.  It works!
