Tonight was a pasta night. We had pasta carbonara from the Millennium cookbook. I followed the suggestion from the cookbook and added some sun dried tomatoes, capers and fresh peas. It had a bit of a bite to it due to the cayenne pepper but it was devoured by everyone (including a friend of Hallie's). I'll definitely make this again. The only time it took was cooking the garlic (1.5 hours). But putting the actual sauce together is a cinch.
We had this with a spinach salad, organic strawberries, watermelon and a loaf of French bread.
I got a new camera and am still trying to figure things out. It's a digital SLR instead of a point and shoot (although you can use it that way). It's a fun new toy :-)
Here are some random pictures I've been taking...

And lots of dog pictures (people complain after a few - the dogs just put up with it). I'll post some pup pics another time!
