It’s winter weather. It has been for a couple of weeks now down here in Austin, Texas. Which, we are NOT used to. 20 degree weather for us Texans is COOOOOLD. It also doesn’t help that the kids have been on break now for two weeks, and I think we are all driving each other crazy!
Nonetheless, I start Whole30 on Monday, and wanted to get a really yummy comfort pasta dish in before I left it for the world of no carbs. And I knew I had to go big or go home, which meant making my super delicious sausage and eggplant pasta! It’s easy, the kids LOOOOVE IT. I’m talking like asking for seconds! I mean, who are these kids? Are they seriously eating eggplant? Sometimes it’s a fight to eat a chicken nugget, but they gobble this dish up and always ask for more. As a mom, you know how important this is!
Christmas is less than three weeks away, and that normally means we are all in our planning phases! Parties are coming our way, lots of random get togethers with potlucks, and of course the big kahuna, Christmas dinner! I always love planning a good menu for Christmas. I know some people get stressed, but I honestly get giddy. HA. Haven’t finalized everything for ours yet, but luckily I have a bit of time! However, I did get a head start on making some desserts that I want to add to my menu!
