Kale, almond, onion and garlic sauce!

When Aaron and I were in Seoul last weekend, Jess told us about a pasta sauce she's been making at home that she thought we'd like trying, and boy did we! We've made it twice since we've been home already.  Hey, you can never take a good homemade pasta sauce for granted, right?!  Forgive me for the lack of photos in this post, but I accidentally deleted them off my computer while I was editing them. ugh... 

 So, here's what you'll need: 
a handful of greens (We used Kale.) 
4 cloves of garlic 
1 onion 
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil 
1 handful of nuts (We used almonds.)

Boil the greens, garlic and onion for 3-5 minutes in a pot. Then drain the water and move the greens, garlic and onions into a blender or food processor.  Add the oil and almonds and blend until it's the consistency of sauce.  If it's too thick, add a little more oil.  Make your pasta, pour your delicious homemade sauce over it and you're ready to eat!  How easy is that?!  ***We added a small dollop of homemade ricotta cheese too, which made it really rich and flavorful! 

Trip to the dentist!

Aaron is deathly afraid of hospitals and dentist offices! So, getting him to the dentist office before we move back to the USA and have to pay 10xs as much for the same procedures was a MUST! After months of bringing it up, he finally got the courage to go! (Mind you, he is a tough, manly guy in nearly every other aspect of life), which is why this was pretty cute to me!

When we got to the office, I sat Brownie (the weirdly famous Korean stuffed dog) next to A to comfort him! 

After a 20 minute teeth cleaning ($65), I went in to check on him and he was doing great! Not like I had an doubts!
Turns out, the guy got lucky and was told that he was CAVITY FREE!  Way to go A!
