This was THE BEST Lemon Linguini! I've never had lemon linguini before, but I'm just sayin' it was terrific! It came out of Susan Branch's Summer Book. We both really like this. I was surprised that Ken liked it as much as he did, but I'm glad so I can make it again and again and not have to eat it all myself, which I would do! The basic dressing is 1/2 cup olive oil, juice of two lemons, zest of one, 1/2 cup chopped green onion, 1/2 cup chopped parsley (I used cilantro), salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. I bought Barilla brand Linguini Fini, a slightly thinner linguini than regular. Am I spelling "linguini" right? My spell-checker says no, it's linguine. Really? What's up with me spelling things wrong these days? I don't care. I'm leaving it "linguini" because I like it that way. Whatever. I had too much coffee. Anyway...make this recipe! It's easy and delish! You could add shrimp or chicken to it too.
Then again, I'm sitting here eating Spaghetti Os, which I love too. Fancy! Oh yes, I have sophisticated taste. See below for more proof.
You know what else I did? I ordered a Simplicity sewing pattern and I don't even sew! I saw it over on Meredith's blog. It's Simplicity Pattern #1080, and I love it. Maybe I can find someone around here to make it for me if I provide the pattern and material. I'm sure I can. I'm not sure why I want to wear something like this, but I'll probably just wear it around here with tights and a sweater anyway. Maybe a heavier material than cotton for winter. I love those big pockets. Looks comfy...
I went to the second-hand store in town yesterday.
Here's what I got.
Sweater and shrug pattern books, which I will never make, 50 cents.
I don't even like shrugs. Whatever.
(Whatever seems to be a theme for me today)
Two highball glasses, $2.
I made a small pkg of butterscotch pudding last night and it fit perfectly into these two glasses. It looked pretty in them too.
Three pretty little pictures.
I hung them by the front door.
$3 each for the round ones, $4 for the other one.
A cute little metal shelf, $5.
A blue-jean skirt with a belt in my size with the Walmart Faded Glory tag still on, $4.
Yes, I tucked the sides in so you can't see how BIG my waist is!
That's all I've got for today. It looks really nice out with the sun shining and a predicted high in the 70s. Maybe we'll go for a bike ride or a drive around the mountains. Sounds good to me.
See ya, friends.
