I had such a great afternoon – I blame the clean house! I got a ton done on my list, including preparing for 2 of my 3 exams next week and memorizing the 20 amino acid abbreviations. Quizlet.com made the latter a piece of cake. Can I also add that Pandora’s Teen Pop station is awesome!? I’m not really a big pop music person – I don’t own any Brittany CD’s – but this really hit the spot today
The mail came around 4:00 and was a wonderful distraction because I received three exciting packages:
Then came a cookbook from Country Bob’s!
Including these darling little Earl Gray Biscotti.
I had 2 of them with a cup of tea and WOW. I was so impressed! I love shortbreads and these were fabulous. I went back for 2 more!!
Karen joined us for dinner tonight for some Fresh Homemade Pasta. She had a coupon for a free pasta with the purchase of fresh sauce at a local Italian shop, Pasta & Provisions. It is made fresh daily, sold by the pound and cut to the shape of your choice. Cool!
We tried the Spinach Pasta!
… and the Meatball Sauce.
Karen brought over this wine too. It was one of the best whites I’ve had in ages. I stuck to one 4-5 oz glass. I’m through with multiple pours. Just makes me pour too much!
We served the pasta + meatballs over a bed of spinach as an alternative to having a side salad. Loved it!
The husband had two pieces of sourdough – I had a big bite
The pasta was good, but not anything more amazing than regular dried. I loved the meatballs though. Haven’t had them in ages!
I finished my wine and sipped some Perrier too –
Dessert. More biscottis. Um, I couldn’t stop at 2, so I had 4. SO GOOD!! These are questionably as good as Quackers!
I have been unusually freezing all afternoon/evening and have been counting down to take a bath. I’m going to heat a pot of water on the stove to ensure I have plenty of hot water (sometimes there’s not enough after doing dishes and it’s tortorous to have to sit in lukewarm water). Then maybe some TV time with my other half.
