Lots of reasons, none of them matter, but the big thing is this weather.
|This photo was taken a month ago in the middle of February!|
And then she delivers this whack!
I hate March winds!!!!!
This is the construction site across from my school. The wind rippling the protective barrier reminds me of waves. #thinkpositive
And if you live in a city, it turns black and nasty very soon.
|At least it's melting!|
So not much cooking is going on - between report cards and conferences and state test prep.
I'm SO grateful for the extra hour of daylight. I may be the only person who loves Daylight Savings Time, but it means the sun is still out when I get home from work. #happiness
So, all this weather weariness is leading to carb overload. Too much soda bread. Too much chocolate cake from hubby's birthday.
I needed something comforting and quick, but I wanted - no craved - something green. To go with the pasta. More carbs. :(
I happened to discover, quite by accident, that when you cook kale in tomato sauce, it makes the kale taste sweeter.
So I simmered some canned tomatoes, added my kale and garlic and herbs. And I had some color and some healthy greens.
Good thing, because that was the side to this deliciousness - white rotelli with ricotta and mozzarella. See how desperately I need spring to really arrive!
So what are you doing to combat weather woes?
PS: Please come say hi.
I have to admit, yesterday when the RITA GH calls went out, I was shocked. I think my real life has kept me too isolated from my writing buddies. I had no idea - probably for the first time in 30 years - that it was GH/RITA day. So that's probably part of the March funk. No writing time available. Nada. Zilch. Sad me.
Soon. After next week, I can breathe again (I hope).
I saw this sign while out walking Fenway. It made me smile. Hope it makes you smile too.
