Gingerbread House

This weekend, I was in St. Louis to visit Bri.  We had one super fun Saturday...check it out!
Bri's and my gingerbread home! 
Of course, Bri found a list of the most "life changing pizzas."  And, of course, one of the places was located in St. Louis.  So, we just had to go there for dinner!  The place is called Pastaria and aside from great pizza, they have all sorts of yummy soups, salads, sides, and pasta! It was a great place to go for dinner and we had a lovely evening.  We agreed that the pizza was extremely yummy.  The crust was fantastic!  Also, we tried some soup and their risotto balls.  Everything was delicious.  Cue the food:

Earlier that day, we put together our very first gingerbread house! We made the cookie pieces from scratch as well as the icing and then we got to decorating.  It was such a fun day!

For the gingerbread, we used Martha Stewart's recipe.  We made more than enough dough and so I saved half of it for a future gingerbread creation.  Then, we also used her Royal Icing recipe.  Everything was fairly simply and we ended up with one great looking home.
