Carby Sunday

T


he hubby and I were out late last night at a friend's house. Throughout the night I had 1 drink and about a handful of chips. We had fun visiting and dancing with friends!

We woke up late this morning and were both craving cheese of all things. We got a double dose with a cheese stick and some Annie's Mac and Cheese:





Then we spent the afternoon with this little goober.


(My nephew Giovanni). "I see you!"

I had some guacamole and organic tortilla chips for a snack:



And then a carb-laden dinner at the in-laws:


(Carbonara pasta)


(Bruschetta)

My portion:



How was your weekend? What do you have planned for the week?
Are you a pasta fan? What is your favourite kind?

Pasta carbonara is so amazing if it's done right. Cream is a big no no. Eggs and pancetta only.

That pasta is making me crave carbs like crazy!

My favorite pasta is most definitely fettucini alfredo with chicken.

Katie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! That pasta looks really yummy...although I don't love pasta because it makes me soooo sleepy. I always get heavy eyed when I eat it, and I hate that feeling, so I usually steer clear. :-)

Oh my goodness- pasta carbonara and bruschetta!?! It looks so good! I don't love pasta but I love the sauces that go along with it. Especially pesto!
Your nephew is so adorable!

Kat said...

I can eat any pasta to be honest with you. It really is a problem I need to address ;) Food looks amazing! And I feel you on the cheese craving...sometimes I just want a big cheesy quesadilla like no other!

Omg, I'm such a huge pasta fan! Love, love, love it! I like lasagna and anything with cream sauce the best. Oooh and I also love tortellini! Haha

Lisa (bakebikeblog) said...

oooh carba-licious :) That bruschetta looks great!

Sarah said...

Oh wow do I love your inlaws' food! Carbonara? Bruschetta? I'd consume enough to keep me going for a week!! I absolutely LOVE pasta and I don't have a favourite kind. I love it all.

Katie @ Health for the Whole Self said...

Your nephew is totally adorable! :)

I absolutely LOVE pasta! If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be ravioli or tortellini stuffed with fun veggies like squash, pumpkin, or mushrooms.

Simply Life said...

oh that bruschetta looks amazing!

Gina said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a HUGE fan of pasta, but I have fructose malabsorption so I stay away from wheat. My new favorite is brown rice pasta, it tastes just the same. I also like spaghetti squash..does that count?!

ktbwood said...

im about to order some of that pasta bc it looks so dang good! ps thanks for your sweet comment girl!

Anais said...

That carbonara looks AMAZING!!!! Like seriously, it looks like the best ever!! I love carbonara but the cream+bacon make it something that i don't have very often... Although I did find that one of Jamie Oliver's recipe tastes exactly like carbonara but there's just a LOT of leeks and some prosciutto which I think is a bit better overall (there's definitely no cream :P)

this weekend i did a zumba workshop (calves are still quite sore) looked at some cars, and had a family get together for my dads birthday.
Went to a pasta restaurant on saturday, it was a tomato pesto, it was good, with about 4 different kinds of seafood. But i substituted the pasta for spaghetti squash!

One Healthy Apple said...

I was embracing the weekend carbs too- cereal for lunch, chocolate for dinner! It was fabulous!

I never order pasta at a restaurant for some reason, but I do like a little whole wheat pasta with lots of veggies!

Kacy said...

All those carbs and cheese look amazing right now! Looove pasta!

Some days are just carbier than others, especially in the winter (I find). Also, I love the purple nail polish.

I am the girl that grew up eating the "yellow death" aka, Kraft Dinner, almost everyday when I was a teen. I was going through some sort of growth spurt (not height, as I've been the same height since grade 5!) but I'd come home from school, make a box of Kraft Dinner, eat the entire thing, and then two hours later have a huge portion of supper. It was insane! I still eat it on occasion because it is cheap, available, and delicious!

Jessica @ The Process of Healing said...

I've been wanting to try carbonara for forever.. it always looks so creamy!!
I'm a self-proclaimed carboholic so I'd say that your meals look pretty much perfect in my world haha I love Annie's Mac!
Favorite pasta? Fettucini alfredo

Katie said...

I LOVE pasta! I love fettuccine alfredo, but I haven't had the "real" deal in years!

Gina said...

I love pasta so much that I could probably eat a different kind every night and not get sick of it! My favorite is angel hair with shrimp and a olive oil-white wine sauce...mmm!

kalin (eating machine) said...

i love pasta! pretty much everyhing, but especially with pesto sauce, because i hardly ever have that, so it's special when i do!

Melissa said...

I haven't met a pasta I didn't like! Your plate looks like a dream :)

Andrea @Celery In The City said...

...YUM! I'm definitely a carb lover. I spent my non-vegan days exploring NYC to find the BEST mac n cheese.
