The Original- Cooking Light, October 2007
I was going to get sushi. Then I took stock of my fridge and realized there was a lot more than wine in there (although, admittedly, when I opened the door I had tunnel-vision du vin). So I looked back through my tearsheets and found a real winner that didn't require me to spend any money or leave the house. The recipe for success, if you will. I'll warn you now...I am in an odd mood. Part exhausted, part giddy, part buzzed, part rando and a few other parts too, I'm sure.
I did not feel like going out to buy a leek so I chopped up the bottom of some green onion I had in the fridge. They're relatives- it definitely worked. Sauteed in 1 TB of butter and 1 TB of EVOO. 2 tsp of chopped fresh sage added once onions transluscent.
Add wild mushrooms and saute till liquid has evaporated. I may have added a splash of extra liquid in the form of some white wine I was sipping on. Then: Half & Half in a Cooking Light recipe??? Apparently everything in moderation...very pretty color contrast although my computer cam doesn't do it justice. That's right...I angled my Macbook around the kitchen to get all of these shots. While singing One Trick Pony by Nelly Furtado. Living Alone: 2 points.
I am definitely feeling every ounce of this picture. I'M DONE! I'M IN SWEATPANTS! I HAVE WINE AND MY HOUSE SMELLS GREAT! YESSSSSSS!
Ta-DAMN...that does not taste Cooking Light in the least. And I only have one pan to scrub! (pasta pots are nothin) It's nice to be home and not eating junk food all the time. Although the swag is nice and currently making me giggle nervously if we're going to be honest...
I have three bottles of this shampoo. So here is the first contest...if you can guess what this bottle reminds me of, I will send you one. It is Life Solutions shampoo by Alterna. Hint: The reminiscent item can be a beautiful thing but isn't generally considered part of the beauty industry. This X factor is more of an XXX factor. Someone else has to see this.
Or am I just overtired, two glasses of wine in and needing to find mischief this weekend?
Bon Chance either way.
