I should start off by saying that I made the goat cheese, asparagus and lemon pasta tonight and it was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Thanks to my friend, Stephanie, I used loads of lemon juice and zest so it turned out zappy, just the way I wanted it. I also replaced tarragon with fresh mint and basil because (a) I forgot to buy tarragon at the store and (b) my Mom (yes, I called my mother for emergency herbal advice!) suggested that I incorporate those two lovely greens. Voila! It was superb.
I spent most of the remaining evening finishing up plans for our honeymoon. The good news is that I've got all of the accomodations booked except for our last two nights, which will end in Tokyo. It feels like such a relief to have knocked this off my 'to-do' list. My procrastination was unreasonable this time around and I've been trying to figure out why. I suppose part of it is my unfamiliarity with Japan altogether and the sheer length of our stay. The only other vacation I've had that's lasted nearly three weeks was my 2007 road trip along the South African coast with Stephanie....and she planned the whole thing :) Spoiled, I know. But seriously, planning 21 days of sightseeing, relaxation and coordinating the travel logistics is daunting. That being said, next time around I think I'll be less timid and far more 'take charge.'
I thought I'd end the evening on a fun note with little lovelies from around the web...little things I'd love to have or share with others. Enjoy.
