Certain days you just have a rough time. Run-ins with clients (they yell at you or insult you). Bumpy conversations with friends and loved ones. Fatigue. Aches and pains (rainy days don’t help). Monday was a day like that for me. Actually - May has been a month like that for me. All I wanted to do was have a nice glass of wine (Haut Medoc in this case) and cook a nice meal - a soothing action to be sure. The rhythm of the chopping, the stirring, and the aromas wafting around. A good friend to join and the evening would be a success.
Unfortunately, as much as I love shopping (let me amend that to grocery shopping), I didn’t really feel like it, so I took a look in my fridge to see what I could come up with - key ingredients: bacon, goat cheese, some fresh veggies and herbs, and of course the pasta. An easy, but delicious combination. Even better, this was all ready in 30 minutes!
