A stache´ and a great meal.

Devin grew a mustache...and then he shaved it off thinking I wanted him to. I actually kind of liked it...


In consolation, he reminded me he can grow it back in just a quick week...whew! Crisis averted.

In other news, this weekend I tried another Mel's pasta dish that Dev claims is my "best meal yet". I used this recipe but of course made some changes based on what I did or didn't have on hand...

Balsamic chicken pasta with pine nuts and Brussels sprouts
I didn't have the red bell pepper that it called for and had been wanting to use up some b-sprouts...so I roasted them in the oven with olive oil salt/pepper and then combined them with the chicken. I also had some pine nuts which seemed like a good fit to this recipe - and they were. I was feeling a little burnt out on strong cheese, so I left out the feta and just used mozzarella. Seriously delicious and easy!

You definitely need to compile some pics of Devin's various looks through the years...I'm thinking it could make a large photobook! It makes me laugh because Nate has had virtually the same haircut and no facial hair for the past 13 years!

Also, fyi--Chad saw this post and he was "reminded" of his desire to grow a mustache sometime this summer.....NO! hahahaha. Although Devin pulled it off better than most! ;)
