Spaghetti has and will always be my favorite comfort food…
…especially when my mother makes it…
…with whole wheat pasta and a spicy arrabiata sauce…
…tossed with sautéed red peppers and onions, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
With homemade garlic bread on the side, and accompanied by a glass of red wine. Perfection.
The only thing that made this Tuesday night dinner even better was this dessert:
1/4 cup Fage 0% Yogurt
1/4 cup blueberries
4 or 6 almonds
Sprinkle of toasted wheat germ
Sprinkle of shredded unsweetened coconut
Dark chocolate chips
3 or 4 crushed Late July white chocolate mini cookies
Yum times a million!
Yesterday afternoon, I had one of those lunches where I just threw everything in my kitchen onto a plate:
You’re staring at a chickpea and celery salad topped with feta, black pepper, and a spoonful of Annie’s Red Wine & Olive Oil dressing. I also threw together some homemade guac with a very ripe avocado I had sitting in the fridge. I mashed it up with garlic powder, pepper, fresh-squeezed lime juice. The guac went really well with Stacy’s Garden Veggie Medley Pita Chips. It was a weird, but delicious and filling lunch.
In other news, I managed to leave my fridge open for an entire day. I stayed at Jeff’s parents’ house on Monday night, and when I got home on Tuesday evening, the door was wide open. Thankfully, everything was OK. 🙂 Oops! Please tell me I’m not the only one who has ever done this.
Jeff is doing some repairs around his mom’s house, and I went over to “help.” Turns out, I have no idea how to correctly identify a wrench, or any tool for that matter. So I just hung around to supervise, and to provide moral support!
I’m still trying to get my new apartment in order, and as soon as I do, I’ll have pictures to prove it! Promise!
Thanks for reading, and for your patience during this transition. I hope to be back to blogging daily really soon!
