I smell like bleach.
We did the laundry last night and Mom told me to put in too much bleach. Clearly that is why everything smells like bleach. Thankfully the office is half empty today because if not everyone would probably have to stand 10 feet away from me in order to not be annoyed by the smell. I don’t know how I am surviving right now. I just want to rip this damn tank top off! Blah.
Chad ordered me the KitchenAid Pasta Maker attachment for Christmas and it arrived last week. I took a swing at making ravioli again. Same recipe, but with much thinner dough. I also made some pan fried Chicken cutlets and a Caesar Salad as Dario and Gina were coming over for dinner. Small and simple, unlike my usual dinner parties. Everything tasted excellent and I feel much more comfortable in the ravioli making department now which is good. This has caused Chad to become obsessed with freshly made pasta and he now wants me to make it when every possible. I might try Fettucine with his Moms famous meat sauce this Saturday.
Sunday the four of us helped out at the Befana event that our Italian group puts on every year. It was Ginas first time being introduced to the ‘Italian Witch’. The lady you ‘plays’ the Befana is like the cutest Italian Nonna of all time. She reminds me of my Nonna on my Dads side. ADORABLE. We get free pasta and sausages out of the deal, and really, that is reason enough to volunteer. We ended up watching the last 10 minutes of the Broncos vs. Stealers game on Darios android phone, including the insane over time finish. Where were you when Tebow threw a pass to beat the Stealers? Oh, we were in a Gym with a bunch of Italians eating pasta and watching the game on a cell phone. Random but true.
Claudia is in Chile for another week, which makes the office very lonely.
Tonight we order sushi for dinner. This makes me very happy. What makes me even happier is that on Friday we are all getting together for sushi again, but this time we are going to use light saber chop sticks. Oh you just wait for those photos!
I’m half Japanese and half Italian, didn’t you know?
