Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas..

Okay, so not really at all. Currently its 85 degrees and very Sunny. That doesn't mean I'm not ready for Christmas to be here though! We bought our first Christmas gift last night. Its just something small but i'm still excited. I would love to turn the air way down, curl up with a big fluffy blanket and hot chocolate and watch all my favorite Christmas movies. ...

...But today I had errands to run.

Here is a recipe for "skinny pasta" that we tried last night. We used tortellini  rather than angel hair and added broccoli and chicken. So yummy!

Skinny Pasta

 - Simply toss pasta with 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon juice, garlic powder salt, and black pepper. 

Could it be any easier??

I'll end this post with a picture of me and my Brian around Christmas time last year :-)


  1. Oh WOW, good for you guys for starting Christmas shopping already! We usually do it a week before Christmas. And that pasta looks GOOD!

  2. If Brian had it his way it would be the week before Christmas too! I love to start early so I don't stress to much in the end if I don't find what im looking for.

    The pasta was fantastic! Brian now prefers it to alfredo(which is kind of a bummer for me because I love a good alfredo sauce!)

  3. The pasta looks great! I'm so ready for Christmas too! We have been watching MORE Christmas movies this week, because of "Christmas in July". Around my house it's never too late or early for anything Christmas! Haven't gotten around to shopping yet, but I have a few ideas!
