Yum. Have you tried Rachael Ray's Tortellini with Spinach Walnut Pesto recipe? It's another really easy and healthy recipe.

Btw, who is your family in Brownsville? I grew up there...

no, I am new to Rachael Ray's stuff, but that sounds good and I love how easy her recipes are also.

"The Georges" are my family in Brownsville. Jim, Carol, and Laura. Have you heard of them?

Hmmm...I don't think I know them, but I'll ask my parents if they do. I haven't really lived there in......a long time.

Kat~ My cousin has been living in Austin and Corpus Christi for that past 7 years or so, and I know Texas is very large...

My uncle builds cataraman boats that people can live on, and my aunt has been a second grade teacher for over 20 something years.
