lemon brown butter pasta

Alison Roman shared this four-ingredient lemon pepper pasta with brown butter, and I’m looking forward to whipping it up tonight, while watching Mr. and Mrs. Smith. “It’s the ultimate ‘I can’t believe this came from only that,'” writes Alison. “My favorite way to cook.”

We love our sectional sofa, but the only catch is that you can see stains on the fabric. I’ve gotten it professionally steam cleaned twice (!), and recently, right after the guys came, Anton spilled hot chocolate on a cushion. *shakes fist* My colleague Maureen told me about this mini steamer, which cleans carpets, rugs, cars, armchairs, sofas, etc. Have you tried it?

So, if things have felt a little slow around here, blame this random dude Edwin who spam called me when I had my guard down. Stay safe out there! xo

P.S. More fun things, and a podcast that made me laugh in Trader Joe’s. Plus, another flower trick.
