Free Lunch exists!

I just won a free lunch from Kudzu bakery!

Exciting. Still not feeling 100 percent from last week’s flu–trying to trick myself into eating–ate some pistachios yesterday and soup. Today I started with cereal, had a blueberry drink at McDonald’s and today I am having tomatoes and mozzarella for lunch. Simple but food I like. Yesterday I cooked some pasta for lunch for myself–small portion, but delicious. Had some leftover sauce in the freezer –just the right amount.


Comfort Food

What is your go-to meal in times of trouble? For me there are two meals that speak of comfort–chicken soup (Italian style with tomato, (acine de pepe or orzo or stelline as the past put in at the end, never cooked with the soup) or pasta of any style with a tomato sauce. Yesterday I made a tomato sauce with baby bella mushrooms.

Saute mushrooms in one clove of garlic and 2T olive oil (a bit of salt–to taste)

add one 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes and 1/3 can water

Cook over low heat for 20 minutes

serve with pasta cut of your choice–penne or strozzapretti go very well with this one.

A friend’s blog has inspired me to start adding photos on food day. Too late for this recipe,but I will start
