What a crazy day...between jury duty, midterms, and trying to get paid (it has been 5 months, and I have yet to receive a paycheck).  Instead of just heating up leftovers (as I usually do on Monday nights), I decided to unwind by cooking.  I checked out some recipes on and after realizing that I hardly had anything in my kitchen/pantry (Not even a tomato!), I finally succumbed to pasta.  I sauteed garlic & onions in olive oil, then added canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and for added "healthiness" fresh spinach (I'm tired of salads at the moment), & salt & pepper to taste.  I garnished with gorgonzola...not sure that was the best pair because of it's strong flavor.  

I can't believe what a stress reliever something so simple as that was.  Afterward, I was able to get a couple of good hours of studying in.  And now, I have the bug.  As soon as I'm done with my midterm (and yoga) on Thursday, I'm going to spend a couple of hours baking.  I also want to start having friends over on Sundays for dinner (after Super Bowl of course)...It might be fun to do different theme nights.

On a side note, I FINALLY finished A Hundred Years of Solitude.  If only I could be as strong of a woman as Ursula. 


  1. I love this idea! I wish I was there, and if I was, I'd be there every Sunday night. Have a great week!

  2. i JUST got a letter infomring me i've been selected for jury duty...i'm hoping to get exempt! i have big travel plans for this summer, and jury duty would dump over all of them...and not getting paid for months?! eugh!

    also, thanks for following my blog! :)
