Today, I…

A blog about being domestic… and loving it. (I wish my mommy still picked up after me.)

Today, I…

…finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (and cried, no BAWLED)…

…cut coupons. Lots and lots and lots of coupons…

…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)…

… read 20 pages of A Rhetoric of Motives, and then promptly patched up my brain bleed…

…showered and styled my new hair!

New Hair and I might hit the town later… it’s whatev. We’re that cool.

Pasta Primavera

  • 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.

      I would like some pasterz. Yes. That sounds awesome.

      Thanks! I like my new hair, too. And, as long as I don’t sleep funny on it, I don’t have to style it in the morning! :D
