Hey everyone! Been a busy, busy girl lately getting ready for my move. My mom surprised me with a last minute flight home to see my family for Easter so that is where I am for the next couple days. Although it would be tough for me to move back to a small city, I am always reminded of the kindness of the people here when I return. My parents and I went to see Water for Elephants yesterday (amazing) and with each movie ticket purchase they give you the option of the movie soundtrack or the book. FOR FREE! I think I said it a bit too loud and people turned around. We are not really used to anything free in the big cities. Then I go down to my old nail salon to visit with my aunt and cousins and the adorable nail lady gave me 3 nail polishes FOR FREE! Aww people here just give and expect nothing in return
Anyway, my mom made this yummy pasta salad today and I thought it would be a great addition to your Easter menu…and it is super easy and low-fat!
