what’s new with me (and a giveaway!)

I went to the see Onegin with my friends, Autumn & Sara

I made a super easy pasta… cook some spinach tortellini and while it is cooking, heat up some olive oil with garlic and onion, throw in a couple handfuls of fresh spinach and cherry tomatoes, give a quick grind of salt and pepper, and then toss everything together and top with a cloud of grated pecorino romano!  So good, and it took less than 15 minutes to make!

D and I went to the Ferry Building for Primavera

I made a cheese sauce bc I had lots of types of yummy cheese in the freezer

Don’t you just love how nutmeg looks inside?  I do.
cheese sauce = macaroni and cheese for Super Bowl

(and of course some sausage rolls, that’s always a given)

I also made Thomas Keller’s fancy smancy chocolate cake that mum had bought me as a pressie.  Don’t cringe… this is not your normal boxed cake, there are no weirdo ingredients, and it was so light and fluffy.  Truly delicious!  (especially when smothered in an extra thick layer of chocolate buttercream frosting!)

there was a trip to Roam after slaving (ha, hardly) in the kitchen all day

(the bison cheeseburger is the best)

we ate my favorite breakfast ever… eggs and soldiers

the appies were a Super Bowl success

Feather made a really tasty bean salad

and Sarah made How Sweet Eats’ baked ravioli

Olivia was the most ferocious Giants fan ever in her cute little blue jersey

I went to Starbucks just so I could get a February LOVE cup

and we kicked off The Food Matters Project with chipotle glazed squash skewers!

next week we’ll be posting the recipe for seasoned popcorn!

(you’ll never want to buy microwaveable again)

Oh, and btw… we’re giving away two copies of The Food Matters Cookbook!  Just leave a comment on our week one review post for a chance to win this awesome book!

You have until midnight (central time) Monday, February 13th to enter!
