I’m in the middle of a laundry fiasco. For some reason this year our dryer, dishwasher, AC, and now washing machine have kicked the bucket.
We spent our last date night looking for a new washing machine.
We decided on a washing machine that had a large capacity which means less loads for me and with five kids that means everything.
So today, the delivery guys took our old one out and went to put in the new one and…couldn’t get it through the laundry room doorway! AHHHH!
It was too big by an inch. Which means now we have to exchange it, pick out a smaller one, and schedule a delivery.
Best case scenario I’ll have a new washer in 4 days which in mom time might as well be 2 weeks.
So if you see the Denney family looking a little less fresh, you’ll know why.
It’s important to know that I am obsessed with having clean smelling laundry. I go through dryer sheets and fabric softener like it’s my job.
My friend moved away and I sent her a gift and she said my package smelled like my house.
I hesitantly asked, “And…what does my house smell like?”
“You know…fabric softener.”
Phew. Let’s face it. There are a lot of smells my house could be associated with since 5 kids live here. I’m just glad it was fabric softener.
Would it be weird to have a fabric softener that smelled like pesto.
I could smell pesto all day long which is probably why I love this Caprese Pesto Pasta Salad. It’s pretty simple.
Grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella balls, basil, and pesto tossed with some small pasta – any shape will do.
Now with traditional Caprese Salad there are layers of tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic.
The key to giving that extra bite is to mix a little balsamic in the dressing. Any more than about 1/2 a teaspoon will start to turn your pasta brown.
Of course if you use white balsamic vinegar you can add as much as you want. This screams summer!!
If you love these, you’ll love this Caprese on a Stick.
