Matt & I were both a little rusty (21 & 15 years respectively) when it comes to skiing. We pulled up our boots, snapped into our skis and hit the slopes.
Our first few runs were pretty snowy but we're all smiles!
Jerry (our new housemate) was an excellent ski instructor.
Jerry actually has a run named after him...This really is his run!
The gorgeous views were a little distracting!
We had so much fun!
While staying in Lake Louise we had the opportunity to see ice sculptures. They were so amazing I can't decide which is my favourite. Of course photos of illuminated ice at night doesn't look as nice as it does in person; but they're still pretty amazing.
I love trying new recipes and when a recipe combines manicotti & ricotta what can go wrong? The answer is NOTHING!
I decided to spend New Years day in the kitchen and cooked up a storm. I made homemade Vodka Sauce to go over Chicken Spinach Artichoke Manicotti. The Vodka Sauce is my own recipe and I made mention of this in my post but conviently forgot...don't smell the the sauce just after adding the vodka, it will sting your eyes.
Making Christmas dinner for a small group can be more difficult than you would think. Turkeys only come in LARGE sizes and this year there would only be 3 for dinner. In all the hustle and bustle of moving, Matt's shift work & checking on the house up north; we didn't get to have turkey at Thanksgiving so I was pretty insistent that we have it for Christmas. I didn't want to make a meal that would leave us with enough turkey to last us till spring so I decided to use just the turkey breasts. I also wanted to keep the meal on the healthier side...save room for pumpkin pie!
