Money has been kind of tight lately, since I booked flights for Boyfriend & I to go over east in January for my gorgeous cousin's 21st and to see AM! *squee* Also, I had to buy ink for the printer this week. Who knew it was so expensive? Luckily, the weather has been delightful enough to get away with snacking on fresh fruit & vegetables all day and sustaining myself with leftovers from Tara's pasta bake at night :)
I've been meaning to post lately but considering I've been having Tara's pasta bake and the delicious deli-counter fiesta of a pasta that Boy & I created almost exclusively, I don't want to pull a Nigella.
The phrase originated on Saturday when the Uber-Blonde and I were discussing our shared love of Jamie Oliver. I mentioned that I liked Nigella Lawson (she had an episode on comfort food where she made mashed potato and gravy, what is not to love?!). UB disagreed, saying she watched an episode of one of her shows marketed as an "Oh, working mothers, you have no time to cook, but make these nutritious meals for your family!"-type gig, and proceeded to make pasta tossed with a jar of antipasto vegetables and olive oil.
For the record, that is almost identical to the deli-counter fiesta, but as the name suggests we get olives, sundried tomato and stuffed peppers from the deli counter and have that with feta and pasta. NOM. Hence, posting that recipe would be somewhat "pulling a Nigella".
Much like the following recipe, in fact!
