I’ve now made Mario Batali’s bolognese sauce twice and can definitively say it is always better the second sitting when it has been reheated and cut with tomato sauce. Next time I’m cutting out the middle man and going straight to what I’m sure is the cardinal sin of bolognese cooking and go ahead and plop a nice can of tomato sauce in right away.

Weekend Recap

averyhappylife:

About once a year I try to visit New York.  There are always things to enjoy and new things to try there and when one of your best pals lives there (with a guest room!) you just have to take advantage of that as much as possible, ya know?!  This year Georgia decided to visit too, so we were able to squeeze in a fun and much-needed girls weekend together in the city.  While most of our time together was mostly spent catching up and hanging out, I’ll post a little recap of the rest of what we did below the cut for those interested.

Great recap, great weekend. LMack I am so impressed with you snapping all of these pics along the way! I didn’t even notice. Can’t wait until our next NYC reunion (and all the ones in between)!

Tried out the new neighborhood Chop’t tonight for a “big salad.” Carson is out for work and I haven’t been in to cooking at all lately. Total cliche. Added extra avocado bc let’s get crazy.
