Sausage, Peppers, and Pasta... Oh my!

We made some tasty goodness the other night. SOOOO Yummy! The peppers, tomato puree, sausage, and cheese all combine for amazing flavor. This recipe is definitely a keeper. 5 Spoons!

You can find the link to the recipe at the end of the post.

It started out looking like this:
See how nicely I cut up those peppers and sausages? It's so colorful! 

Note for next time: When you cut the sausages too large, they'll take longer to cook.

The recipe called for diced tomatoes. I'm not a fan of tomato chunks. I like ketchup. I like spaghetti sauce. I don't like raw or cooked tomatoes. So I used my fun toy to puree them.
This turned out to be an awesome choice. Substituting tomato or spaghetti sauce would have been too thick and heavy. This added just the right amount of flavor and a light sauce.

Then mix in the pasta and CHEESE!

And you're ready to serve, sprinkled with Parmesan. (More CHEESE!)

You can find it here and make it yourself. Highly recommended!

The invitations

Now that the wedding is over and I don't need to worry about any unexpected guests showing up, I can share the invitations I designed. I was really happy with how they turned out and got a lot of great feedback.

You might remember from our Save the Date cards that our reception was a game theme. So I designed the invitations to look like playing cards.

The main part of the invitation features the King and Queen of hearts. I found some text online that I liked and edited it a bit to fit our event. Here's what the main invitation final product looked like:

Since we also needed to include the addresses for the church, reception, and hotel, I made an Ace of hearts card, too. (Get it? 'A' for address?)

I also wanted to include a map since we'd have a lot of out of town guests. I know most people have a GPS these days, but it just seemed like a good idea. For the map, I saved a screenshot of the area in Google Maps, then traced over the lines I wanted in Photoshop Elemen…

Christmas 2013 Project - Subway Sign

I made this for my mother-in-law and step-father-in-law (is that a thing?). They have a total of 7 children between the two of them, and they live all over the country. Needless to say, they spend a lot of time traveling. I thought it would be fun to capture all the different localities and this was an easy way to do it.

One of the most common refrains around here lately. That and

Mommy nap.
Daddy nap. 

Note, Ru doesn't nap.
