Good Morning and Hello My Friends,
It has been quite the noisy morning! I was rudely woken around 6 a.m. by some rather noisy crows...and more than an hour later, they are still at it! So, I'm using this mug today:
Cracks me up each time I pull it out of the cabinet.
Then, when I woke up my computer I saw this:
Looking at the weather app on my phone, we should see snow around 8 or 9, then rain, then more snow. Spring weather!
Yesterday I tried a new-to-us recipe and it was another winner!! I made Lemon Brown Butter Pasta With Roasted Artichokes and Fennel using this recipe. I subbed bow tie pasta and added fresh parsley as well as the basil.
The garlicky breadcrumbs were the BEST!!
I also roasted some more nuts:
Very addictive. I used Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans and almonds. Mixed them all up with less than a TBS of EVOO, some sea salt, black pepper, a bit of rosemary and some red pepper flakes. Put them in a 325 oven for about 10 minutes, then turned it up to 350 and roasted for another 5 minutes. The difficulty is to not eat the entire bowl at once! LOL
I'm hoping to ease into the weekend this afternoon - fingers crossed that work will cooperate. Have a great weekend!
