Did you ever read that book? I had to do a presentation on it in 10th grade, and I think my partners and I brought Jello pudding to class that day. I also remember not holding up my share of the discussion… I used to be so afraid of public speaking. Sorry Danny B, wherever you are!
Dinner tonight was the rest of my Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti.
For the sauce, I started off steaming some kale in a covered skillet until it turned bright green. Then I transfered it to another dish. Meanwhile, I cooked the agnolotti as per the the package directions.
In the same pan, I sautéed garlic, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil. When they were nice and golden, I added the kale back to the pan and, plopped in the cooked pasta, and tossed it around for a few seconds.
Topped it with some cheese and voila! This was a great combination of flavors and textures.
I also steamed some carrots and broccoli… because I wasn’t quite sure I’d eaten my weight in veggies today.
And some carrot-broc water. I was so excited about it that I burned my tongue big-time… that’s what being impatient will do!
This was a very satisfying dinner. I like to beef up pasta dishes with lots of veggies to round out the meal. This way I end up feeling satiated without eating a whole bowl of pasta. For more “macaroni” tips, check out Heather’s post.
I didn’t have any lucuma powder, so I substituted 1 tsp of agave nectar instead.
This was delicious. It smelled heavenly in the blender; all of my favorite spices smooshed together. There were so many interesting tastes and textures… I love how chia seeds get sort of gelatinous when they’re wet. The recipe makes 1-1/4 cup of pudding, and I wasn’t sure how much was in a serving so I ate half of it. It was very filling, so I probably could have had less, but breakfast is a long way away.
Sleep tonight will come courtesy of my friend Eli… he was very excited about the ear plug dispenser at the Summit Brewing Company and passed a couple off to me. Hopefully I’ll have an easier time getting some shut-eye tonight!
Hope you’re having a great Saturday. Bonne nuit 🙂
