Let the countdown begin.
30 days today!
In 30 days I will be married to my favourite guy, my bf, the love of my life. I still can't believe that 9 and a 1/2 months have went by so quickly.
I am going to warn you now - for the next 30 days at least, there will be a lot of wedding talk. I hope that it won't be boring, I hope that it won't make you curse me, I hope that you can bear with me.
If you can't, then please check back in, after 30 days. No, please don't. Please don't go, I will miss you.
Oh man - I am excited. I will tell Chris to snap me out of the wedding craze if it gets too much.
In celebration of 9 1/2 months going by so quickly, I made the quickest dinner tonight - well almost - toasted cheese sandwiches are probably the fastest. I picked up the ingredients on my way home from college. I am a Wednesday night college student. Sniff.
Quickest pasta ever
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 pack of fresh pasta
8 oz of grape tomatoes
1 chorizo sausage - sliced in half lengthwise - and then thin strips
2 cloves of garlic - minced
Fresh parmesan cheese
Bring water to boil and boil the pasta for 4 minutes. While you are waiting for the water to boil, chop the chorizo sausage and mince the garlic. In a large skillet add the olive oil and saute the sausage, garlic and tomatoes together. Add a pinch of kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Remove the pasta from the heat, and with a slotted spoon, add the pasta to the sausage and tomatoes. Stir it all together and then add the parmesan cheese - as much or as little as you like.
I used chorizo for this because I wanted some meat for the pasta - but I didn't want to have to cook any. It's a great alternative when you are in a hurry.
And that's it. Short and sweet.
