Summer Pasta Remix.
Most people spend their memorial day weekends lounging by the beach or pool. D and I took a 2 1/2 hour excursion to the Jersey Pine Barrens (aka: where the Jersey Devil resides). In 90 degrees, I covered my body in long black pants and a black zip-up to deter bugs from feasting on me as we trudged around a bog and a lake in search of carnivorous plants. I also spent that time fussing with my new camera, and learning all sorts of things to do that don’t make pictures look great. These are frustratingly the best I could do after 2-hours:
Meanwhile, D got down and dirty.
Sadly, the only working out I did today was shifting my butt during our 5 hour drive (thank you Jersey Shore traffic).
When we got home we were both beat and decided to order in Italian. Except they are closed on Sunday, and apparently although today feels like Saturday it isn’t. So I dug deep and was so relieved that I stole a pint of grape tomatoes from my mom. Grape tomatoes + AeroGarden basil + 5 cloves pressed garlic + olive oil = Summer pasta to the rescue!
I sort of feel like this right now:
So now I’m sipping on some Pomarita (review to come) and cozying up for some Netflix. What’s not to love about a 3-day weekend?
