Garlic Oil Pasta & La-Z Saturday

Wow, what a week.  It almost took my breath away.

They say that life can change on a dime, and for me, it sure did.  Who would have known last Saturday when I was posting this that one week later, I would be in treatment for a medical condition I thought I would just have to live with because of affordability.

I truly feel like I hit the lottery.  But that’s all I am saying about that.  Well… unless the side effects get really bad and I have to vent and you poor reader get to listen to me vent as well.  Thank you for listening.

Today is a weird Saturday.  Kiddo is at a sleep over, its overcast which I love and I am kind of well, in limbo.  Should I write, should I walk, should I clean, should I blog?  You know, the kind of morning you can just crawl back in bed and put the covers over your head.

Heck after I post this, I just might do that as well. Winking smile  Why not!?!

I do know one thing.  I am making this later!


I have all the ingredients.

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 head broccoli, sliced into very thin florets, stalk peeled and cut into matchsticks
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Few tablespoons water or pasta cooking water, if needed
2 cups penne pasta, cooked al dente (I use gluten free)
Parmesan cheese, for garnish

I really like this chef!  I love that I can watch her videos to make sure I am doing it right too.  She is also very inexpensive!  It’s a win-win for me!

If I see her cookbook at a thrift store, I am picking it up for sure.  I never watch her show because since I got basic cable I never know what is one when.  There is no menu that shows you any of that when you have basic cable.  That is the only thing I miss about the expensive cable, but it is totally not worth the cost.

So I am doing that… then I am going to the iPhone store to strangle anyone behind the counter with their cheapo iPhone cord.  Am I right?  OMG, what a piece of crap those things are!!!  I have like four of them that are useless.

Hope you have a great day.
