Did you miss me!?
We packed a lot in today – there was little relaxing until the evening. BUT that means that I am going to chill tomorrow instead! I worked on a handful of projects – both business and household – so settling down with a movie this evening was extra sweet.
Laundry : )
We spackled and touched up some wall paint that needed help. You should have seen the wall behind the trash can – all dented and black from the back of the can hitting it over a year!
Matt also brewed TWO batches of beer – and cleaned up the brewery.
I made pesto from this sad looking basil I bought at the market yesterday.
Asiago + roasted garlic (so breath is under control!) + walnuts (cheaper than pine nuts!)
Whizzed up with olive oil and salt. All to taste. Pesto is so easy to make. Little this, little that.
I had a late lunch of leftover udon tofu noodles and a nectarine!
I heated up the leftovers with a blob of ricotta on top – delicious addition!
Afternoon cereal snackage. Oh, also went on a 3 mile walk!
Dinner tonight was awesome. We used to make frittatas ALL THE TIME but somehow when I started eating eggs for lunch more I stopped planning them for dinners. Must bring ‘em back!
The frittata contained garden tomatoes, pesto, jalapeno and Caromont Farm Herby Goat Cheese!
Just sautéed the jalapeno in some oil, added 2 big sliced tomatoes and 1/4 cup pesto and cooked around for about 4-5 minutes. Then we poured on 5 eggs and big
blogs blobs of the goat cheese. Into the oven at 400* for about 12 minutes.
Roasted potatoes on the side – a summertime favorite! Matt roasts these in olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary for 400* for 40 minutes on a cooling rack (should be called heating rack in this case!) It lets air circulate and gets them nice and crispy.
After dinner Matt and I watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (U.S. version). I read the book a while ago and could barely remember the plot. I thought it was a good movie, but not sure I’d want to watch it again – chilling at times. But I love a mystery!
With our movie, Matt surprised me with a little bowl of Breyers Vanilla Bean – fav!
We had a good day and hope you did too!
