Happy Birthday Ethan!

I was going to post a super tasty Italian Wedding Soup recipe today. Really, I was.

But then I got a text from my very pregnant sister late Wednesday night -- there is a possibility she's going to be induced a couple weeks early. As in, this weekend.

So instead of lounging around at home in my sweats for the first weekend in over a month, Adam and I spent today chasing this kid around.

And I found myself looking at this after a nice trip to the grocery store (and this was probably less than half the haul).

We spent some time making a couple batches of this lasagna,

2 batches of skinny chimis (don't worry, I won't hold out on you), and some marinara sauce.

I got to try out my brand spankin' new immersion blender for the first time. So I was happy. And it is awesome -- totally beats trying to transfer hot liquid to a blender.

But it is all worth it. I mean, I got Michael to actually eat half of a skinny chimi tonight. Which is pretty good for a 2 1/2 year old. Oh. Wait, there's another reason it's worth it.

That's right, it's Ethan James birthday today! Couldn't ask for a better reason to give up a weekend at home!

Must crawl into bed now. Lots more cooking to do tomorrow!


  1. Best reason ever to give up a Saturday! Congrats to everyone!

  2. Best start of weekend ever! He is adorable! Congratulations Auntie!

  3. Cool! CONGRATS!!! On your little nephew (and using your immersion blender!) :D

  4. Awww! Congrats on the new nephew! What a cutie! And gives me baby fever even more. =)

    Definitely worth giving up a weekend for.

  5. Congrats on your sisters baby.

    Is that peperoni in lasagna? I have sooo got to try that!
