Bowtie romano (recipe)

So, it is taking me a little longer than I thought to put together the post on the girls’ party. Until I get that done, I wanted to share with you this awesome recipe. :)

Once a month I get together with 4 of my friends and have a Mommy’s Night Out. Last month we all brought a dish for dinner. My friend Trish brought this. Bowtie romano. And let me tell you – I had been craving it from the time I left Mommy’s Night Out, until last night when I made it for my family! So good..

The recipe can be found on the back of the Ronzoni bowtie box..

I did make a few changes to suit my family’s tastes. Instead of prosciutto I used bacon. And I also added chicken to it.

And here is what it looks like..

FYI, it makes more than what is shown in the picture. I had already made Micheal and the girls’ plates before I remembered to take a picture. :)

And now I am wishing I had some leftovers to eat.. Ha!

Thank you Trish introducing me to this yummy dish!

Spa party favors

My daughters turned 4 and 5 this week. This afternoon we had their Birthday party at a local salon that has a whole room dedicated to little girls. It’s AMAZING and I will share the pictures Monday.

Today I want to share with you the pictures of the favors I made for the party.. They turned out so cute!




The tags were customized for me by Party So Perfect on Etsy. LOVE them!

In the bags is a pack of gum (Walmart), a bottle of nail polish (Walmart), nail clippers (Dollar Tree), nail file (Dollar Tree) and one of those things that you stick between your toes so your nails don’t smudge…(Also Dollar Tree) :) What is the technical name for that anyway?? Haha.

I got the idea to do these favors from here.

So that’s it for today! As I said, be back on Monday with my favorite pics from the party! :)
