Happy Easter!

 Thought you would all love this picture! This time last year, we threw an adult Easter party with real bunnies (aka Matt, Fab, and Nick) and did an Easter egg hunt with jello shots in plastic eggs. Sooo much fun! Here's some pictures from last year's party that I thought would make you all smile :)
Nice thighs Nick!!!

This year, we are having a tame Easter as I was in CA all week for work and was absolutely exhausted when I got home yesterday (I slept a whopping 14 hours last night!!!). We had a nice afternoon yesterday and spent the time going to the gym, running errands, and just hanging out at home. As y'all know, I LOVE flowers and bought some beautiful hydrangeas and Irises on our way home from the gym yesterday...I just love how bright the Irises are!
For dinner, I made this simple but delicious Proscuitto Asparagus Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta. I had found a recipe online, but ended up changing it up quite a bit. Here's what I did:

Proscuitto Asparagus Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta

Ingredients
  • 1/2 box of whole wheat angel hair pasta
  • 1 bunch of thin asparagus cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 5 slices of thinly sliced proscuitto
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream (you could get away with less if you want - like 3/4-1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Directions
  1. Bring a medium saucepan filled with water to a boil. Blanch the asparagus for about 2-3 minutes. *Blanch means put the asparagus in the boiling water and cook to soften them. Once cooked, remove asparagus and place in a bowl.
  2. In the same pot, add more water and cook the angel hair pasta according to directions.
  3. As pasta is cooking, in a medium frying pan on medium heat, add oil and heat until it's shimmery. Next, add garlic and cook until flagrant. Add proscuitto and asparagus to pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat down to low and add heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Let the mixture simmer on low until it thickens up. Once the sauce has thicken, add the pasta and mix thoroughly. Serve while hot with garlic bread!
Today, we are enjoying another low key day and are watching the Masters on our couch. We hope you all have a nice and relaxing Easter with your family and friends!
