Ham Noodle Skillet {Schinkennudeln} easy & delicious #dinner #recipe

How is everyone?  Well, this has been a true whirlwind of week - well, can you even say that.  Okay, it does sound a little strange. Let me try again - it has been a very eventful and busy week for me.  Remember I went on my little trip to NYC?!  Yup - I promise that there will be at least a couple of posts about it.  Yes, two so get ready...

It was super fun and now I have to get back in the swing of things...The weather in Portland has been unseasonably dry and sunny. It actually should feel balmy after the snow and cold on the east coast....We spent Saturday taking a long neighborhood walk with a visit to the playground and yesterday I - yes it is true - worked in the yard while the girls where scootering...So you know we needed an easy, satisfying dinner - good thing I was talking aka as texting with my sister Kati in Germany and she suggested Schinkennudeln.  Oh yes - plus everything was in the house...
