SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

no deceiving, nothing up my sleeve and no teasing


Last night I made the BEST pasta. I've now eaten it all, but I wish I had another huge pot of it right now. First, I made some whole wheat angel hair pasta (the recipe called for linguine, but I didn't have any, and I like angel hair best anyway). Then I chopped up a zucchini and a yellow squash and sauteed that in some olive oil, with salt and pepper. Then I added onions and garlic and cooked that whole mess down soft. Then, back in the pasta pot, I mixed the cooked pasta, a reserved cup of cooking liquid and five ounces of goat cheese. *swoon* THEN. I mixed the pasta and veggies together and topped with a splash of fresh lemon juice.

GOOD GRIEF. It was word-defyingly amazing. *wipes up drool*

Early this morning, my new mattress was delivered. YAY. I got the bed all made up (my most hated chore, FYI) and celebrated by watching "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." FREAKING ADORABLE. It pretty much bears no resemblance at all to the book, but is a very cute story with hilarious characters. There's one scene where the main guy is on the phone trying to talk his dad through how to send an email that...*purses lips*...let's just say, it hit quite close to home. Haha! Anyway, super fun, go watch it.

Now I am going to read fic for a few hours until 10:30 p.m. when I pick Rachel up from the airport. YAY!
