Oh Happy Day!

I love weekend!

JustAwesome has only owned this cookbook for less than 18 hours (and slept for 8 of the them) and has made 2 recipes already. I think it is going to be a great summer...

I came home last night to a popcorn with mustard, thyme, chives and butter because she thought it’d go well with the cocktails (with rhubarb bitters) she was a fixin.’ And I woke up this morning to a gorgeous dish of Baked Oatmeal, which has blueberries, peaches (the fruits can be flex), nuts and whoknowswhat.

Went great with my Longo Latte.

If you don’t regularly read this blog, you should.

My life is the best! Oh happy day! Winning!!

Pasta Primavera: The Remix

Today’s NYT magazine has 8 recipes by Bittman for pasta primavera. I’m not usually very excited by pasta primavera, which means “springtime pasta”, but once I saw that JustAwesome had picked up some fresh pappardella from Piemonte Ravioli, I was quickly on board!

What I typically don’t like about it at restaurants is that it is usually too many disparate veggies, none of which I’m very interested in. And it always seems soggy and tasteless. Bittman simplifies it and adds a little kick.

Pappardella with peas, pecorino, chili and mint.
Soooo good. Clean and simple.

I hope it is springtime long enough to try the other 7 recipes. Fortunately, we have enough for leftovers tonight.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yeah, it's that time of year again. Consider this a PSA, since it is such a short season. So delicious. 3 will set you back $6.00 right now. Worth every cent. Good thing I live so close to Chinatown.
