Ahhh.. there's your favorite pasta! Looks mighty good! All I would need on the side is a big glass of milk and warm, cheesy garlic bread!

Leftover penne quattro formaggi and a salad of bitter greens. Tasty.

I just nursed my li'l peanut back to health, and my big pot of potato-leek soup was very helpful. There's something healing about soup.
Somehow, with lots of Emergen-C, the boy and I managed to aviod it, sofar anyway. The schools in our little town have been decimated by the flu.

Maybe the Emergen-C will help you, Alix. looks like you've got hte healing soup all covered.......

And it's always happy hour somewhere.

thank you vb!! i went to the dentist (which is a bit of a ride), voted, went to Lowes to get a tub faucet, shower curtain liner, shower rod, room darkeners, and a few other errands which wiped my back out and my damaged foot looked like a football. i wanted to stop at the farm market and get some fantastic sesame seed loaves for garlic bread but the body was week . i do have my heart set on those loaves for cheese steak sammies with a twist. so i will be getting some soon.

The jury is in. James liked it better than I did. It was ok at first, but the more I ate the less I liked it. The chocolate just kind of became overpowering and kind of left a greasy feeling in my mouth. I am glad we tried it, but I will stick to my regular chili from now on!

I'm calling it italian breakfast pasta.

No acually breakfast stuff, just a play on words.

Took some italian sausage with ramano and garlic in it
took some pancetta
cut up both of them and sauteed in a pan
made up some six cheese alfredo(parm, asiago, provalone, mozz, ramono, ricotta)
added some roasted garlic
simmered it for a while.
cooked up some fettuccine with water/chicken stock which I made last night.
Also added two spoons of cream cheese and it gave it a real nice tecture.


absolutely delicious!!

I have some hamburger out thawing. I feel like absolute crap though so I have no clue what to make with it. Something really easy and low effort is on the horizon I think.
