Last night I met up with Jess (Mike’s sister) and Laura (Mike’s cousin) for some group cooking and hanging out time. We picked a new recipe from the most recent Healthy Cooking magazine, each provided a few ingredients, and made ourselves dinner. It was a lot of fun, and the food was great. I didn’t get any great pictures (as you can probably tell) because I was too busy talking and cooking and hanging out, but I did get a couple cute pictures of the two “distractions” to the cooking process:
They made the the experience much more fun, and I must admit the highlight of the evening was when Noah gave me a hug and said “I’ll miss you.”
The recipe we made was for Asian Pork Linguine. It’s a 30 minute meal and pretty simple to make. We were all a little surprised at the taste when we first tried it, but everyone said it really grew on them, and in the end we all went back for seconds. I think it tasted a little bit like a simple version of pad thai thanks to the peanuty sauce. I’m sure I’ll be making this again because I really liked it and Mike wants to try it. If I remember, maybe I’ll update the picture for one where you can actually see the food.
