Reasons keep growing on why I love my Keurig, and here is another, Tootsie Roll flavored hot cocoa!! I picked some up at Walmart, its really good and creamy, just what my sweet tooth loves!
I tried this new recipe called Pasta Puttanesca from a cute blog I follow named A Cup Full of Sass. It was the first time I had tried whole wheat pasta and it was pretty good! Very light! And I love anything with olives:
- 3 cups cooked wheat spaghetti
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2½ cups spinach and arugula mix
- ¼ cup diced red onion
- 3 Tablespoons capers
- 1 cup black olives
- 1 lemon
- 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes
- Boil water in pot and add spaghetti noodles. Cook until al dente. Reserve 3 Tablespoon of cooking water and drain the rest.
- While noodles are coking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add minced garlic, red onions and capers and sauté for approximately 2 minutes.
- Add halved cherry tomatoes and black olives to pan. Sauté for approximately 4 minutes.
- Add spinach and arugula mix and cook for approximately 1 minute.
- Add cooked spaghetti noodles and the 3 Tablespoon of reserved water.
- Continue to cook for an additional minute or until spinach and arugula leaves wilt.
- Remove from heat and squeeze lemon over pasta and season with a little salt and pepper.
- Mix well.
- Sprinkle with a desired amount of crushed red pepper flakes.
I wish I could look this cute in a ball cap!
I ordered Jimmy John's this week at work when I hit my Lean Cuisine limit...FREAKY FAST! I just loved this sticker :-)
I spend A LOT of time sitting in traffic, no fun. But this week I was sitting at a red light and I noticed this row of trees, I love how they all arch over the road, it felt like I was driving through a tree tunnel!
I was shocked this week as the rest of the world to find out we lost another great musical talent in Prince. He was a truly talented musician and song writer. 57 is too young and another example for each of us the live each day to the fullest. So many great songs, Nothing Compares 2 U Prince.
