Happy Monday, y’all. We had the most fun weekend! On Saturday we went to Aldo’s niece’s birthday party and did science experiments with the kids. It was a lot of fun, and only one kid ended up with slime in their hair (Aldo’s niece, the birthday girl), so all in all I would consider that a success!
On Sunday we went to do one of those Escape the Room things in New Brunswick. If you’ve never done it, it is a real life puzzle where you are locked in a room and have one hour to escape. You need to solve puzzles, decipher clues to figure out the combination codes, and open locked drawers and boxes in order to eventually find the key to get out of the room. We went early during the day to make sure that it would be just the two of us working on the escape puzzle. It was so much fun!! We were so close to escaping, if we had a few more minutes we would have found the last key to escape the room! If you have one of these places near you I highly recommend that you go. There are usually Groupon or Living Social deals for these activities, so look that up if you are interested in going.
I wanted to share this 20 Minute Pork Three-Bean Soup I made for Randall Beans a while ago. I love this recipe because it is the easiest, quickest ”Cooking 101″ recipe possible, yet it makes a good hearty, healthy soup. Seriously, anyone can make this soup from scratch and there is absolutely nothing tricky about it. Even if you are a seasoned cook, it is always good to have recipes like this in your arsenal, so that on busy days you can have dinner ready in 20 minutes. Most of the ingredients are ones that you have in your pantry or freezer, and you’ll just need to pick up some pork and green beans on the way home. Easy peasy!
