Christmas Baking and Pasta Salad!

Hi Everyone!

This last week have been busy finishing Christmas shopping, wrapping all the gifts, baking for a few parties and being a wife to my husband. Here are a few pictures of the baking I have done:

My favorite. There is a story behind all these ingredients you see here. When I was in the fourth grade we had a project and we had to make something using all California grown products. Since we were learning about California. This is the dish I made with the help of my mommy. Whenever it is made I cannot stop eating it.

It is so GOOOOD. 

Pasta Salad:

Bow Tie Pasta
Ranch Dressing
Almond Slices

Cook the pasta and while the pasta is cooking you can get all the other ingredients ready, but you will not need them right away. After the pasta is done cooking drain the water the water and put the pasta in a bowl. Then add some ranch dressing (just add as much as you want, this is just so the noodles will not stick together) and put the bowl in the refigerator. Leave the bowl in the refrigerator until the pasta is cool, then you can add the ingredients. And Enjoy! 

Side Note: I do not add the nuts in the pasta salad until I am ready to eat a bowl because the nuts will get soggy in the refrigerator. Also, you can add more ranch if you feel like you need more.
