Because Friday, right?
In other news, guess what? My car has been making some funny noises but recently they’ve stopped but then yesterday there was a SMELL in the car kind of like burning rubber? I smelled it when I left the office to get lunch and couldn’t figure it out and was JUST SURE that my car was burning up from the inside out. Then, weirdly, when I got back into my office I smelled it again! Did I smell like burning rubber?
You guys, hi. What a weekend! I cooked all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and WHOA. Why can’t this be my life? Can you guys send me more catering jobs? I’ll totes travel to where you live.
Help me do that please.
One of my most favorite things about writing this blog is the people that I hear from and learn about – mainly about food habits. I LOVE getting requests for recipes, types of ingredients, etc. One of my friends from high school in Japan in the dark ages reached out to me with a gluten free request – she modifies a lot of recipes herself but sometimes it’s just….not the same.

This time of year I have this thing where I want to take everyone food but I SERIOUSLY don’t have time to make long-winded appetizers. I love bite-sized food like this because you don’t need fancy utensils or even napkins if you’re careful, and folks can eat 57 and not feel guilty because they’re bite sized. For rizzle.
People go on and on and on about roast chicken and while I get it, I just kind of …. didn’t get it. Vague enough for ya?
Jay had been wanting to roast a whole chicken for, say, ever, so for his birthday that’s exactly what we did! It turned out PERFECTLY, was incredibly simple, and we can’t wait to make it again. This is a simple version with nothing fancy, and that’s what was so great about it! It seems as if you don’t overcook the chicken then you’ll be golden. The bird was crispy on the outside, MOIST on the inside (let it go), and the veggies roasted in chicken drippings were just…..ahhhh yes.
We actually have very few – we had 3 celebrations and somehow ended up with no extra food? We don’t exaaaactly need it, but still. Sigh. Everyone hates us. We do have an epic amount of this mac and cheese, made without chicken, but we aren’t terribly upset about that! Continue reading »
4 days away from you felt like a lifetime, bee tee dubs. Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We had 3! THREE THANKSGIVINGS, Y’ALL. They were all different and fun and delicious, so you should just mainly be jealous.
Also now I’m full.
This is a great day. I mean, it’s a work day and it’s raining and cold and I’m annoyingly busy, but we have Rory in town this weekend and SO MANY FUN PLANS and Jay’s birthday is on Tuesday and next week is a holiday and just YES.
I’ve been wanting to tell you for awhile about how I take crappy winter tomatoes from Aldi and roast them for a LONG time until they’re slightly dark at the edges and super sweet and delicious. I use them in all kinds of dinner, but in this pasta they’re particularly delicious.
