anyway, i made a recipe i've been wanting to try for a while: cheese-gilded linguine with smoky tomatoes. i halved the recipe and used slightly less pasta, but i still have lots of leftovers. i think this was the first time i've cooked bacon, ever! the pasta was supposed to still look cheesy-- i tossed 6-7 oz. pasta with 1/2 c parm BEFORE adding on the sauce mixture (the key to the recipe)-- but the pasta kind of absorbed the cheese. maybe it was because i used spaghetti instead of linguine (i used whole wheat and didn't see whole wheat linguine at the store). oh well, it was still delicious.
and now, enjoying a leisurely yet early breakfast. i didnt sleep all that well last night, although i don't THINK it was the cat/kitten that woke me up. the kitty has been crying a bit when i leave her alone (she really wants to explore the apartment but my cat would eat her) but her cries are so soft that behind a closed door they aren't all that noticeable.
strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon-raisin english muffin, almond butter, pumpkin butter (on one), banana, cottage cheese. the basics!
not sure what i'm up to today. i think i'll go for a run (but perhaps inside?!?!) and i may invite my friend over if she's feeling better. i'm happy that it's sunday and i don't really have to do anything! except play with the kitty, of course!
