Dinner with the Birthday Boy

So much has happened this week - I think I will need about 20 posts to catch up.

But here is my favorite thing that happened this week - I went to Chris' house and we made a birthday lasagna together for him and chocolate chip cookies!! It was so much fun, as usual, and I laughed my head off all evening. That newly 22-year old sure knows how to have a good time. :) He's so silly.... :)

Here, Chris is instructing us all on how to build a delicious lasagna. Word to the wise: go easy on the ricotta cheese. Apparently the quote-unquote "lasagna teacher" wasn't being very attentive or instructive and the ricotta had a hay day. But who doesn't love a little ricotta in their lives and on their hips?


The end result! Aaahhh....cheesy, tomato-y, noodles with garlicky French bread....hmm......this meal was all about rustic, tasty comfort food.

Chris, I have cherished all of the fun, discussions, activities, milestones, growing, etc! we have shared over our lifetime. Just think, we are just getting going - there is so much to experience left! I couldn't have survived childhood without you - we've been two peas in a pod. And I DEFINITELY could not have survived furlough or road trips across the US without you! :) I cannot express how deeply BLESSED I have been to live so close to you during your college years (at least undergrad)! Your passion and zeal for life is so inspiring. I love you!!

Also, if anyone is wondering - do not waste even $0.50 on "B'Loonies" - it is quite possibly the dumbest toy invented to man. Now, if you are buying it for a couple of good laughs or to substitute for 'flubber', then you came to the right place. If you don't have a clue of what I am talking about, just ask the man in the picture below....
