A blog about being domestic… and loving it. (I wish my mommy still picked up after me.)
…finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (and cried, no BAWLED)…
…went grocery shopping! Spent $130(ish) and saved more than $30 with coupons and store deals. I have so many ideas for recipes! :)
…picked up the house and cleaned the kitchen… (I am wife-lady! Here me ROAR!)
…made lunch (recipe below)…
- 8 ounces fpenne
- frozen vegetables, such as broccoli florets, sliced carrots, red bell pepper strips and peas (and you’ll need a steam bag)
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon dill
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄2 cup grated Parmesan
- 2 tablespoons butter
First, cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package. Drain well. Meanwhile, steam frozen veggies in a steam bag in the microwave. A full bag is usually 6 min. for frozen vegetables.
Next, put broth, dill, garlic powder, thyme, cream, Parmesan and butter in same saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes. Add pasta and vegetables; toss gently to coat well. Serve with additional grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
What did you do today? Oh, you know, the usual… The dog wanted to take a bath.
