Catch Up

The weather is absolutely miserable over here. Wind, rain, thunder. They say if it was cold enough to snow we'd have 2-4 feet right now.


Friday night I went back to Otto. I left my point and shoot in the car and it was too dark for pictures w/my measly camera phone and I didn't eat any really yummy pizza so I'm sorry I have nothing to share.

But here's what's gone on since then.

Yesterday my mom, dad and Jen had pancakes and bacon.

I had 2 mini bagels with a bit of butter.

I had leftovers from Otto over mixed greens - the Pasta Alla Norma - penne with roasted eggplant. Me and my gallbladder skipped the yummy fresh ricotta. :(

But we did have a slice of leftover margherita pizza.

Jen and I made Orzo with shrimp, spinach and roasted tomatoes.

We roasted tomatoes at 400 for about an hour and chopped them. Sauteed some shrimp in garlic, a little olive oil and onion and then added the tomatoes, spinach and orzo.


Pretty table.

The finished product.

Yummy bread.

My plate:

Today we're going to see the cute CT kids for lunch and then back home. Sometime soon - though it's probably not going to tell me anything I don't already know - I'm going to give this book a read.

And that's the news for now. I'll be back later with more. Hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. Sounds like you've been having a lovely weekend...and some delicious eats:)

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  2. Excellent food porn today. :D

    I have that book as well, but haven't read it yet. I do love his other stuff.

  3. Dione - it was lovely - except for the horrific rain!!

    FF - you're welcome? lol! The book is a super quick read and you'll just sit there saying "Duh!" the whole time but it's never a bad thing to have a reminder.
