I’m so very, very thankful that things at the shop are going so well. I now have time to spend with my family at home and cook dinner on a regular basis. Tonight we made homemade pasta with a swiss chard pesto. I know, I know … homemade pasta is a little over the top. Don’t worry, that’s not our normal routine. I was just embracing my inner Italian (too bad I’m almost 100% Norwegian without a smidge of Italian) I’m just obsessed with European food and culture.
Levi loves fruit (and gelato of course), but I haven’t had any luck getting him to eat vegetables.He also loves pasta so I took the swiss chard I got from the farmer’s market yesterday and sauteed it with some butter and onions. Then I pureed the mixture in the food processor and used it as a pesto on the pasta. Levi didn’t even blink and had three helpings. Woo hoo!
Tuesdays are my favorite. Levi and Jake come down to the shop and we buy tons of local fruit for gelato and sorbet.
