Today is so pretty out! I’m definitely busting out the shorts after a short winter hiatus. I used to think southern California was a shorts all year kind of place. I think for the most part, it can be. My salty east coast self would grumble from under my parka, “They don’t know cold.” But, after living here for almost a year, I have to say, this winter was a bit chilly!!
Fact: Thai pesto should be slathered on errrythang. Right? I mean, right? I don’t know if I can totally convey the deliciousness of this dish through the computer screen, but here goes…
So I went to type up my first post since being in California. Well, it was basically a blubbering mess of exclamation marks and the words beautiful amazing beautiful amazing over and over again. I wish I could describe better exactly how exciting this is for us to be here, and how much I love it, and how I gasp at the beauty every time I turn a corner. But the words I’m typing don’t do it justice. I loove it. That is all.
Remember at the end of my post two posts back where I asked what else we can put that Thai pesto on? Well, this. This is the brainchild of my dear sweet husband and damn was it on point. He went to great lengths to ensure his idea came to fruition, from shelling and deveining the shrimp, to running to the food store (literally running) to get all the ingredients, to providing moral support during preparation. He’s pretty hunky too.
GUYS! We got an Apple computer. A MacBook, or something? I’m pretty sure it’s a pro too which means it gets paid for its super awesome skills and can no longer compete as an amateur. Also, it means that the awesomeness of my pine nut posts will skyrocket (come on, we both know that’s not possible). The awesome sauce bar is pretttay prettay high.
