Good Morning, Everyone! Is this our favorite day of the week? Well, if it’s not, it’s pretty darn close. What day is it?? What I Ate Wednesday of course!!
That’s the day when all of the fun happens over at Peas & Crayons presented by the lovely Jenn! When you’re finished getting your fill here at BCDC, please wander over to P & C to read some blogs, get some ideas and leave many comments! Don’t just be a lurker…everyone likes to know that you’ve visited! It’s fun, I tell you!
It seemed that the foods I wanted to share with you all happened in a bowl, hence the title…Bowl Me Over!
Monday night I was very hungry for some reason. I wanted pasta, but pasta meant some waiting time. I started with a ready-made but very delicious salad.
It was actually the side salad that came with Ralph’s dinner on Sunday night. He doesn’t like the way Picasso’s makes the side salad. I happen to think it’s delicious and since they gave me extra balsamic vinaigrette, I was perfectly happy to do away with it while I waited for my pasta to cook.
I was turning whole wheat rotini pasta into what we call in our family “stinky feet” pasta. It gets that name because of the Locatelli cheese that we use. It tastes delicious regardless of how it smells. I made it with some of the special olive oil I got in St. Petersburg this summer from the Kalamazoo Olive Company. The variety I used was Tuscan Herb. It was so good. All you do is cook the pasta and drain it, then you add the amount of olive oil you like. Then you sprinkle with the cheese. I also like to add some crushed red pepper flakes.
Mix it all together and it is just the best. I think I love it because it is so simple. It also tastes good!
Tuesday morning I was up early working on NaNoWriMo. I knew I had a busy day ahead of me and I wanted to add as much to my word count as possible because I wasn’t sure if I’d have a chance to get back to it later in the day. I also figured I needed breakfast early for the same reason. I put together something that I love.
It looks a little strange I realized. It’s cottage cheese and apple butter. It probably sounds a little strange to some people too. However, it is very tasty. So sweet and creamy that it tastes decadent although it’s not. It’s something I’ve loved for a long time although I’m usually hard pressed to convince other people.
I took it into the computer and ate while I worked.
That’s my view lately. I’m kind of liking the view I think! So as you can see, I’ve been a little bowled over, but I keep working!
Now don’t forget to make your way over to Peas & Crayons see what’s happening and say hi to all of the fun people. They love to hear from you as much as I do!
I’ve got to get some more work done on my novel. Enjoy your day!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
