Mmmm Monday's

It is no secret that I adore pasta. Baked, stuffed, with marinara, with butta and Parmesan, mmm, mmm, mmm! Also no secret is my excitement when I find a new recipe that is easy-peasy and allows for meal planning, meaning I make it once, we reheat for lunches, dinners etc. AKA hence the purpose of this blog post ;)

It all started when I found a "skinny" recipe for stuffed shells with spinach. I love this because it calls for very few ingredients, ones I mostly always have on hand anyway, and is quite simple/fun to assemble. The pictures ahead show a play-by-play of how to create this positively delicious meal. I made one dish with homemade sauce (eek, I made my own sauce!!!) and during the process I decided to throw a dish of Alfredo together to mix it up. Both were delicious but I have to say the Alfredo were both mine and Hunty's fave :)













Fresh green beans tossed with olive oil and sea salt and a dollop of fresh ricotta on top of the marinara shell to add that next level of savory....mmmmmmmmmm!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
