Now add some pasta to that awesomeness and you get Caprese Pasta!
After looking at broken blinds for the past year thanks to our cat's birdwatching hobby we decided an upgrade was necessary. The blinds were sticking out all over the place on one side and on the other side a perfect square (the size of a cat head). Anytime someone came to our house I was so embarrassed by the state of our blinds that I tried to deflect attention anywhere else. Our plan was to install some nice two inch wooden plantation blinds in the evening and have a light late dinner. But instead I ended up being lazy and just watched my husband sweat, curse, and struggle putting up these blinds. I still made dinner though! It was really easy, fast and yummy! I will definitely be making it again. Oh yeah and my husband did an awesome job on our blinds. Enjoy!
