This is what I've done every day for six days, besides working and all the other normal stuff.
No, I don't look like any of those people. But it is a hard workout. After six days of it, I definitely needed a rest. So this was my Sunday.
A dog walk:
|OK, so it didn't snow until Monday, but I did walk the Dinky Sunday, too.|
A few episodes of Julia Child's first cooking show:
A very short shopping trip:
|Insanity wore out my trainers, y'all!|
Some reading by the fire:
Some Skype time with my little brother:
And of course, dinner.
Remember the Roasted Pesto chicken we made late last week?
We had enough left over for a second take. Time for a pasta dish!
Boil a half pound of elbow macaroni, drain it and set it aside.
If you're lucky, have your Pootie read to you while you cook.
|Dinky is NOT helping.|
Dice an onion and about 3 cloves of garlic and sauté that in about a tablespoon of olive oil for 3 - 4 minutes. Add a can of diced tomatoes and half a cup of pesto sauce.
Add 4 oz. of goat cheese and 1 1/2 cups of leftover pesto chicken, diced. Or shredded. I just kind of pulled it apart with my hands. Add about 1/4 cup of cream or milk. Stir it all together, then dump the pasta in.
Mix it well and put it in a large casserole. Top it with 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
Bake it at 350F for about 15 - 20 minutes, until the cheese on top is browned.
Serve with a green salad. I made one with oranges and a blood orange vinaigrette that Pootie liked.
What a wonderful Sunday. I could use another two of those in a row.
