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. 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.
