Ah, its the weekend-finally!
Now that I work a full week, I have come to cherish these two days of freedom. And these weekend is extra awesome; the folks are leaving town (without me-wha!) and thus I am left to make sure my mother’s garden doesn’t die in the heat. This also means I am in charge of feeding myself dinner.
I am so excited.
Okay, let me explain. I love my parent’s cooking; it’s delicious. But I also love cooking myself. And lately I’ve been craving some lovely cheesey pasta. Nom nom nom! So I shall take inspiration from my ever favorite Pioneer Woman and make her Pasta ai Quattro Formaggi… with a few additions of course! Starting with her basic cheesy pasta, I shall add some sauteed mushroom, spinach, sun dried tomatoes and maybe some chicken or meatballs. And of course I must bake something! Since my parents are going camping without me, I am making S’mores brownies from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen blog. Yum yum yum!
As much as I love not having to buy groceries and making dinner every night, I do miss going to the grocery story and perusing the aisles and pondering what I could make. So I look forward to getting back in the kitchen while the folks are gone.
