Well, the weekend was a complete washout weather wise. It was cold, wet, and windy. We did get the house clean, Craig mowed the yard, I cut up a large branch that the wind took out of a tree in the front yard, nearly hitting the mo-ho, and Craig made some wonderful meals. You'll see more cooking with Craig as we're stuck indoors more often. In nice weather, we tend to cook quick and easy on the grill, but when we're stuck inside, Craig has more time to spend in the kitchen. I stumbled on this recipe, and although it's a little more time consuming than some, it turned out wonderful!
It's called Asparagus and Chicken Carbonara.
Here's the prepping. Craig managed to steer clear of the camera this time.
Here's the finished dish. Doesn't it look yummy?
