I have a new favorite recipe, thanks to naughty Nadia of Bitchin' Kitchen. I was minding my own business, just watching the Cooking Channel, when all of a sudden, I'm drawn in to this recipe for Zesty Spaghetti a la Putanesca. Yum, it looked so good and easy to make, even a guy could make this, seriously! (No hate mail please). Anyways, it's a simple combination of olives, capers, anchovies, garlic, tomatoes, and I had to try this. The aroma was enticing, and the flavors all just melded together into it's own unique taste. I can't wait to make it again. It's a classic Italian recipe, and so easy to make.

A real highlight of this weekend was a surprise visit from Bethany Hamilton, of Soul Surfer fame. The Christian Surfers Outreach group was at the beach in Newport during one of it's monthly events, and Bethany was nearby and stopped by to say "Hi" to all the kids. She was as sweet as can be, and my son was so happy to meet her. What a great inspiration she is for so many.

We also hosted a small pre-party before my husband's high school reunion. It's always fun to see this special group! We had tacos from here and margaritas from here. (Yes, the other Bethanny).

I can't wait to see what next weekend has in store.
