We threw another successful party! Despite the Christenson's moving two days later, Sophie being born, and finals ending! Up Green Canyon we had a zesty taco bar with sweet pork, lime rice, black beans, and guacamole: all to be topped off with Jarritos soda straight from Mexico.  Sara made her own pinata out of paper mache adorned with red spikes and the Mexican flag symbol. The party would not have been complete without our authentic Mexican costumes. I mean look at Nate... can you say Speedy Gonzalez! What a party!

Easy Tortellini Soup

I wanted to post this recipe for one of Nate and I's favorite dinners as of late. I know we are heading out of the soup season, but this is a healthy, cheap meal so we'll take it!
Tortellini Soup
In a Medium Pot combine the following ingredients:
Two 14 oz cans of stewed tomatoes
1 cup frozen spinach
2 cups tortellini (or shelled pasta) cooked separately
1 cup water
1 teas beef bouillon
1 minced garlic clove
Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes
Serve with Parmesan cheese
