Lemon-Herb Pasta (Serves 4-6)

Recipe Courtesy: Cuisine At Home

Malfada pasta looks like small lasagna noodles. If you can't find it, use farfalle (bow-tie) pasta instead.


12 oz. dried mafalda or bow-tie pasta

2-3 Tbsp. minced lemon zest

4 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano


Cook mafalda in boiling salted water according to package directions.

Drain pasta; transfer it to a serving bowl. Toss pasta with lemon zest, lemon juice, and butter. Add oregano.

So…last night we went to a “Murder Mystery” party at the El Cortez in downtown San Diego. My husband’s character was a Russian dancer. Mine was a super model.

Notice our serious faces. 

We arrived to a beautiful cheese platter.

We were seated for dinner and the show began. Our meal started with a salad.

I had a s’mores bar and a carrot cake cupcake. Both were delicious! Oh and by the way….neither my husband and I were the murderers. :)

Breakfast this morning was an egg beaters sandwich in between a toasted English muffin with cheddar cheese. I had some strawberries as well.

Then I got my bake on and made my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Lunch was tuna salad on top of a bed of greens.

Tonight we are headed over to a friend’s house to celebrate Father’s Day. They are having Phil’s BBQ cater it. Need I say more?

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!

Have you ever been to a Murder Mystery party?


  1. I think if I ever got my husband to go to something like that, he'd have to already had a stroke and unable to speak! He's not a fan of such stuff!

    OMG, that cheese platter is to die for!!
