Today’s 50 degree weather put me in such a great mood! I’ve felt motivated, enthusiastic, and jovial all day long. In fact, Mal and I agreed that today felt more like a Friday than a Sunday. We decided to open a bottle of wine to further enjoy the day!
I sipped on a small glass of Gnarly Head Chardonnay while cooking dinner.
Tonight’s dinner was inspired by a pasta recipe from Real Simple. One of the key ingredients for the meal was chicken broth, which was used instead of water to cook the pasta. The chicken broth added a TON of flavor to the linguine.
Instead of chick peas, like the recipe called for, I added broccoli florets that I steamed in chicken broth mixed with minced garlic. The broccoli also had tons of flavor!
Finally, I stirred in sliced almonds and topped the pasta with a little olive oil and fresh Parmesan from Whole Foods. Using fresh Parmesan made all the difference!
Have a nice evening, bloggies! Back to the grind tomorrow!
