A pumpkin and a meme
Well my Food TV fave
came through again. We tried Rachel Ray's Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage
tonight and it was a hit. We made a few changes to lighten it and they were all worked out great. I served it with Pumpernickel and lima beans (one of those hated veggies that I just love, love, love). I have no doubt this will be made again. It was really easy and had a great mellow flavor. I might leave out the cinnamon and nutmeg next time, or just actually measure so I don't over do it. I wanted to try it this first time though. So here it is and I have TONS left so looks like I will get to enjoy it again tomorrow.
Well I was tagged by Joe over at Culinary in the Desert
to participate in the 23/5 meme. So here it goes. I am using a sort of selective counting method because my 23rd post was only number 23 because I posted about the hurricanes and that doesn't really count. So I jumped to number 24. The 5th sentence...
This is the 23/5 Meme.
1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog, along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext, or hidden agendas
Tag others to do the same.
To say the least, I was not left with a huge desire to stuff chicken breasts again.
Well, if you have read my blog long you may have realized that chicken and I are not the closest of friends. I hate how they are kind of slimyy looking when raw. I hate how they still sometimes have feathers when they are whole. I hate that weird tendon thing that is nearly impossible to cut through. I had made stuffed chicken breasts before this post and butchered that poor chicken breast. Sliced him right through. So I am working on my hatred for preparing chicken (because I actually really like to eat it). So there it is, for all to see, I lost my meme virginity. It was not as bad as I thought, and I hope it calls tomorrow.
So I pass it on now. So Jen at Speculative Musings
and Sara at I Like to Cook
, you all are up. Its time to share.
