Creamy truffle mushroom sauce tossed over cute teddy bear pasta for a wonderful kiddie treat!
It was such a busy weekend!
Finally! It was late but we still managed to celebrate Twinkle’s 11th month with a Teddy Bear themed party. I know I haven’t been updating you with Twinkle’s monthly parties. Heck, I’ve been up to my neck in backlogs as I have many many things I wanna share but I just couldn’t keep up these days….
I believe I’ve blogged about until the seventh month…hmmmnn.. but I’m planning to share with you the 8th until the 11th until the end of June because after that — it’s gonna be her first birthday!! Yaaay! (Yeah, it’s gonna be celebrated on the day of her dad’s birthday).
Okay. More details on the monthly parties soon, for now let’s move on to this Truffle Mushroom Teddy Bear Pasta.
You see, Twinkle’s 11th month teddy bear party was planned a couple of months ago that’s why I have this bear-shaped pasta on hand. I just think it’s adorable and cute!
And since we are so crazy about truffle mushroom sauce these days, I think it’s the perfect sauce to top it……
