Lazy Pappardelle

Hello! I know it has been a week since you last heard from me. We spent last week getting ready for and then having a garage sale Friday and Saturday. Day One was about a billion degrees and Day Two it rained. Wouldn’t you know it?!

Sunday Kasper and I got up and headed to the farmers market. It was the first opportunity I’ve had to go all summer. I got lots of yummy produce. While we were there we popped into Jones Bros Cupcakes and picked up some Cro-nuts. Oh you don’t know what a Cro-nut is?! Don’t worry I hadn’t heard of them until Saturday when my neighbor asked me if I knew what they were. They are a croissant donut hybrid and they are out. of. this. world. I picked up one bourbon caramel and cinnamon sugar Cro-nut holes for the kiddos. Excitement overtook me and I didn’t snap a picture of the whole Cro-nut.

We didn’t get to shop the neighborhood garage sales since we were busy manning our own sale. So we headed out west of town to Junkstock. Junkstock is a three day flea market like sale out on a farm. I love how my husband summed it up “Pinterest made sweet love to a dreadlocked hippie and naturally birthed Junkstock in a mud bath.” That pretty much sums it up. We had a great time wandering through all the stands. I spent a whole $2! I am marking my calendar for the next Junkstock so I can start rummaging on day one.

I hope your weekend was a lovely one! On to my lazy pappardelle. Friday night I was absolutely beat from sitting out in the nine billion degree heat all day and cooking was about the last thing I wanted to do. So I threw together this lazy pappardelle. I predict it will be making many appearances at our dinner table. Sometimes quick, easy, and simple are just what is needed.

  1. I love garage sales. Growing up in a small town we would go to them all the time, but here they don’t exist the same. 🙁

    Cro-nuts are all the rage here. People wait in line and then sell them on Craigslist for 20x the price. It’s crazy!

    Your pasta looks great!
