I feel like Snoopy from Charlie Brown, “it was a dark and stormy night…” except that it was daytime. All day yesterday was dark and pouring down rain. It never fails that the weather is drizzly on memorial day weekend. Waffles seemed appropriate for the dreary day.
I finished the book “Under My Skin” yesterday.
It was just okay. The writing wasn’t really my style and I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the characters. It didn’t have much suspense, when things took a twist it was usually pretty predictable. However, it was a semi-entertaining and light read.
Lunch was the leftovers of my green chili chicken enchiladas from yesterday. Yummm! Leftovers are one of my favorite parts about eating out. Two microwavable minutes away from deliciousness.
To be honest, I really didn’t do much the rest of the day. My stomach was hurting and it was super rainy so staying in and being lazy seemed like a pretty good option. I snacked on an orange, read, watched some TV, and then helped my mom assemble a delicious dinner.
What do you get when you combine parmesan, mint, turkey bacon, peas, and a bunch of flavorful seasonings?
This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s cookbook and it’s a huge favorite in our family. Simple and delicious. And when you use organic turkey bacon and whole wheat pasta, it’s very healthy! We devoured our pasta at the dining room table with a cool breeze from the rain pouring in.
