Age ain't nothing but a number!

Pasta La Vista Baby!

Pasta La Vista Baby…………….or should I say, Hasta La Vista Baby! The literal translation and meaning is  “see you later”.  I say , see ya bye to the forties and hello to the astounding fifties!

My gal pal Katie turned fifty this past weekend and the celebrations still continue.  We have moved the party to the backyard for grilling, chilling and pasta making with new and old friends and family.

Who says that turning fifty is a bad thing?  I see nothing but fabulous around here!

On the menu today is asparagus, pea salad, cheese flans, flank steak and homemeade PASTA!
