2 Wins and A Fail!
Win #1 – I RAN 8 MILES!!! This is the farthest I’ve run in one go, to date. I may have done a victory dance in public (but gimp-ily cuz by 7.25 miles my ass and my ankles were aching…triple A, he he)
Win#2 -Made dinner for Dman and I, so I tried to take some pictures of the process (wine in hand of course!) and while I chose a few weird ingredients look at this awesome picture!!!! WIN!!
FAIL! – I thought I’d get all special and get these fresh looking spinach noodles.
I didn’t read the package though and they’re actually for soup. They ended up pretty mushy ( a little more then al dente if you know what I mean). So to save them I did a little Italian leftovers trick called fried spaghetti 🙂 I sauteed some garlic in the pan with olive oil, added the noodles and then the sauce. Could have been saved but then I decided to get fancy again and added fresh spinach. That did not turn out so well. I had made some tofu to add to my bowl so I tried to pick out all the spinach and plopped it on the tofu and then added some noodles. Then I put together Dan’s bowl, as spinach free as possible. But, I did NOT apologize or make excuses. Isa Chandra taught me in her Vegan with a Vengence book to never apologize for your cooking (her book is awesome by the way an I have used many a recipe). Dan didn’t really notice though I did ask him if thought next time I should use an actual pasta instead of chinese soup noodle. He ate most of it willingly but agreed that they weren’t a perfect fit 🙂 ah well, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad!
Tomorrow is my weekend 🙂 Enjoy your Monday! I know what I’ll be doing… sleeping in!
