It's always sad when it comes time to write the final post of a trip. Although this is only the first of two big trips this year, the idea of flying home tomorrow seems far too soon. But enough of that we had one final day here in Brussels and we were going to enjoy it. Our enjoyment began after waking up a little after 10 AM and lazily getting out of bed.
Exit West started out as a book I thought I was going to absolutely love. I believe it made President Obama's favorite books of the year list when it was released and is one I've heard a lot of love for. When we meet Nadia and Saeed they are on different paths in their lives and its the turmoil in their home country (which I don't believe is ever named) that brings the two together. When they do finally flee we not only get to understand the life of a refugee but also two individuals with their own hopes and dreams and relational struggles.
We've had a little bit of a gap in between our last recipe but we're back with our latest one and yes its another pasta dish. We love pasta what can we say. This latest pasta dish is a shrimp pasta in a garlic tomato cream sauce. Unlike a lot of the pasta we make, this was a cream sauce we made from scratch and it turned out beautifully.
March may go down as one of the shortest recaps of all of 2018. A week into the month I came down with a nasty cold and it took me out of commission for a little over a week. With a good rain storm and not travel plans, March was a pretty slow month.
