Gluten-Free Ravioli!

Our little guy has been pretty sick over the last while so Meagan and I haven't really had the chance to go out together too much. On Saturday night we decided to have a date night at home instead, no babysitters needed.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago and most of the time I manage pretty well with my diet. We always made a lot of stuff from scratch anyways, so it wasn't too hard to adjust our way of eating to avoid the dreaded gluten. However, there are always a few things that I really crave... an amazing burger, a really great pizza, going out for some tasty pasta. Well, we took the plunge on Saturday night and decided to try making some gluten free ravioli, stuffed with portobello mushrooms. Mmmmmm!

At first it seemed a little daunting but the process didn't end up being as long as I thought it would be. They weren't the prettiest looking ravioli but they're the best I've had in a long time! I think they turned out quite well in the end and I think we're going to try something like that again. Take a look!











I had to add this one at the end because it's just so cute. Aaron's into making funny faces for the camera nowadays. He stayed up while we made the ravioli but he went to bed before our dinner... as much as we love him, we were ready for some peace and quiet for our stay-at-home date night. :)

It's about time!

Life has been incredibly busy lately but it's still no excuse for the way I've neglected my blog. Sorry!

Just wanted to write about a couple of things. First of all, we had an amazing time with Steve and Jen Bebb this past weekend. They came to Winnipeg to share their expertise in photography and business with us. I really appreciated learning from them and being in their seminar, but I especially valued the time just getting to know them. They are genuine and friendly people and Meagan and I had a great time spending time talking to them throughout the weekend. Sometimes you learn just as much over dinner as you do in a seminar. In this case, we learned a lot in both!

Check out their blog entry about coming to Winnipeg.

Thanks Jen and Steve!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to be a part of the second annual High-Style Photo Shoot Event at the Fort Garry Hotel, organized by Events by Emma. More info and images from this amazing photo shoot are still to come... look for a future posting and a special feature by Weddings in Winnipeg. I just wanted to say a special thank-you to Vicki for being a part of this day and for looking as stunning as always!
