Made a sauce to go with pasta twirls, i.e. with bacon, onion, baby sweetcorn, french beans, young broccoi, tinned tomatoes and chilli seeds.

Oops realise I forgot to include a bayleaf...I have masses of them drying out from trees in my garden. (One that sprung up and reached to the skies - the other pruned in a large pot).

We're just having leftovers from last nights St. Paddy's Day dinner. Corned beef, cabbage, mashed red spuds, carrots, rutabaga.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I know what you mean. Those take-out phone calls can be torture.

We ran out of leftovers so I had to cook. That's OK, I like to cook. I made a quick arugula and boston lettuce salad with a hazelnut-balsamic oil vinaigrette, a few black olives and some chopped tomato. Himself deemed me a little heavy-handed on the hazelnut oil. Guess I actually have to measure next time. I also made seared scallop pieces with bacon and itty-bitty Brussels sprouts, served with a side of parsley-garlic buttered noodles. I decided I was a bit heavy-handed with the garlic.

Good thing I already have tomorrow's supper, picked up from the Polish deli. All I have to make is mashed potatoes, which favor a heavy hand.
