Do you want to hear something kind of funny about Nathan?

{He is for sure hating me at this very moment.}

He is absolutely convinced that we are going to win the lottery.  He buys a ticket for every drawing, which happen twice a week, and every time the jackpot gets really big he gets particularly excited.  Like giddy.

He’ll start the day of the drawing by saying, “Maybe we’ll win the lottery tonight!  What do you think we should do??  Would you keep blogging?  Do you want to move?  Buy a new car?  Build on to our house?”  And it goes on and on.  He builds this whole huge fantasy world around which we are gagillionaires.

It’s kind of adorable.

It’s maybe even cuter, because he is the most logical person I have ever met.  Like he knows the odds of winning the lottery.  And of course when I point this out to him, he tells me, “Fine.  You can’t have any of my winnings.”  :)

This pasta salad is kind of like winning the lottery.  {Nathan’s voice in my head: “There is nothing about pesto that is like winning the lottery.”}  Because it’s so ridiculously easy and super delicious.  If you are headed to a get together this holiday season, this is the recipe you want to make!  It’s heavy on the taste and light on the stress.

So, if you won the lottery, what would you do first?

    We can all dream of living in fantasy land right? Life is more fun that way.

    I love pesto and this looks like such a refreshing way to use it! I make pesto when my garden is in full swing, freeze it and enjoy it all winter long. I posted the recipe on my blog earlier this year. Here’s the linkhttp://wp.me/p3plic-oa
