My cousin Tierra, that I’ve mentioned before on IG, has an event planning company called Swanky Rose and helped out with planning this soiree. Check out more details from the party below!

So long suburbia! Hello countryside!

After days of craving a lobster roll, I decided I was going to have one this past Monday night since Nate going to CHOPS with his boss. I started searching for restaurants that I could order for pick-up on my ride home. I couldn’t find too many places that made them in the North Atlanta area, and the one that I did, was $18! It just wasn’t that serious for me to spend almost 20 bucks on a sandwich just for myself! So, I figured maybe I could just make one, it would probably be much cheaper (I’m on a strict budget over the next few months, I’ll fill you in on why later).

Finding dishes that my fiancé and I can agree on is tough sometimes due to him being a picky eater. He doesn’t eat cheese or seafood, which are 2 of my favorite foods in the world! So finding dishes that can be tweaked to benefit the both of us is always my number one priority. I usually gear towards pasta dishes because I know we both love Italian cuisine and it’s pretty easy to add-on the items I like as garnishes towards the end. However, I’m limited on certain pasta dishes, due to the no cheese rule, I avoid using any alfredo or cream base sauces. So I was very excited to try Ragu’s new line of Homestyle Pasta Sauce on my Italian sausage and bow tie pasta recipe!
