Ivan & Kim take a walk and have lunch

It is a beautiful sunny winter day that feels more like spring. Ivan is feeling better after being sick all weekend with the flu. He wants out of the house!

So Ivan and Kim take a walk.

Like always, they head to the costanera. It's so clear you can see the mountains in the distance! But boy, it sure is windy today! Instead of walking by the lake, let's go look at the pretty houses. Mmmmmm, I really like the fence on this one. Wow -- look at those doors! I love how the front door usually matches the garage door. Oh look! There's a house for sale! Has potential, don't you think? Definitely! (Ivan and Kim are always noticing the houses for sale. Did you hear about the time they were driving home from Out West and spent an hour and a half looking at real estate in a little town in Wyoming even though there was absolutely no chance of ever living there?)

Time to head home. Let's stop at that pasta place. Fresh pasta for lunch sounds really good! What can we put on the pasta? There's a little red sauce left from the other day, but not much. Okay, next door to the pasta place is this little market. We can buy cream and have Pasta Neopolitan. The bread from the little market is so good! Look at all the yummy things we picked up on our walk. Even a couple of empanadas for the appetizer. Ivan, can you pick some lettuce for a salad? Sure. Oh my, we do like fresh pasta! Only 3 minutes in boiling water and it's done. Look honey, I picked some radishes for the salad too. Add some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Now that is one fine looking salad! Let's dish it all up and have lunch! The End.

Looks wonderful! (I'm extremely jealous of the lettuce! Ours died. Or was eaten by bunnies.)
