Before I begin to tell you all about my frustrating friday, let’s rewind back to yesterday’s dinner.
Remember how I had the idea of using the asparagus pesto in pasta?
Well I did and it totally worked.
I just boiled up some pasta, sauteed some veggies and chicken sausage and tossed it all together with the pesto.
Amazing!! It was SO creamy. It was alfredo sauce without the cream. The lemon and garlic really came through too.
In other news, today like I said was frustrating.
I had little to no motivation to get started this morning due to my insomnia that I had last night. I seriously tossed and turned ALL night.
When I finally got dressed for the day, I ventured over to Southpark mall. I was hoping to find a few spring fashion finds.
Well, if you follow me on my new Twitter account, you’ll know that I failed miserably.
Anyways, she had seen a few posts back that I was looking into getting a tripod. Then she messaged me and said she had an extra one lying around and that should send it to me for the cost of shipping. Of course I jumped at the offer!!
I can’t wait to figure out the logistics of it and start playing around using it!! Thanks again Gail!
Tonight I was in one of those weird moods again where all I was craving was a huge salad.
Seriously who am I??
When I was at Earthfare I ventured outside my box and bought a package of tofu. It was on sale. I was feeling adventurous. It was on sale.
I cooked the tofu per Emily’s instructions .
In the bowl went: romaine lettuce, black beans, grape tomatoes, avocado, tofu, red wine vinaigrette.
The vinaigrette was simply a glo0p of whole grain mustard, a squeeze of honey, a pour of red wine vinegar, and a heavier pour of EVOO.
Yes those are measurements according to me. That’s usually how I cook, by gloops and pours. Yep.
So verdict on the tofu?
It was alright. It wasn’t horrible but I wasn’t blown away either. Maybe I just made it too simple. Maybe I need to give it a quick marinade next time.
At any rate, I ate it all.
My craving was fulfilled.
Oh and I also was able to take my dinner pictures on my balcony today!! I think they look so much better outside than my normal pictures.
Note to self, eat an earlier dinner!!
Now it’s time for a movie, some dessert and playing with my tripod.
Amazing dinner plans tomorrow night!! I can’t wait.
Is it tacky to wear sweatpants to a restaurant?? I fear I may need them after my meal tomorrow.
P.S. Twitter is really addicting.
