It's what's for dinner


What's wrong with this picture? It's the pasta. Joe's good friend lives in Italy and brought us this pasta as a Christmas gift last year. It has sat in the back of the cabinet ever since. When we opened the wrapping paper I didn't even laugh. I almost threw it out, but the thing is, it's perfectly good pasta and it's even from Italy. So tonight I swallowed my pride and boiled it up to add to our standard kale based pesto with peas and red peppers. This is the only way I can get Harlan to ingest vegetables (make it into pesto and sneak it in amidst the pesto and pasta and plenty of cheese). I have to admit, it was SFG.


If you want to read about a life even more exciting than mine (what? More exciting than making dirty pasta for a family dinner?) You should all go immediately over to my good pal Elliette Devine's blog. Her most recent post is about having to go with co-workers to a strip joint in the Bronx. I can't believe Fifty Cent wasn't there honestly. She also has hands down the best childhood photos posted including this one which I will borrow as a means to entice you over to her blog:

At first glance I thought, oh, what a yummy dish. Then I saw the shapes. Not, exactly a family-friendly feast, eh? Still, it makes me giggle.

mmmmmmm. pasta never looked so good.

I would have used it too, though I have to admit that I just wouldn't have enjoyed looking at it quite as much as non-dirty pasta shapes.

Man, people will make anything into a penis shape!
