Spinach Linguine

Pasta is not my forte. I only eat it about once a month, if that.
This turned out to be extremely satisfying. It's Trader Joes Spanich & Chive Linguine (not vegan). I like to use a jarred organic sauce and then I add my own fresh basil, shallots and extra garlic. If I'm feeling in the mood for a little spice I toss some red pepper flakes as well.
Serve with a nice red wine and you have yourself an Italian feast fit for a King, or Queen :)

I've been relaxing at home the last few days. I finally got around to watching a movie I've been dying to see- Ghost World. I have to say I enjoyed it and I can tell why people link it to JUNO- which goes on sale this Tuesday and you better believe I'm buying it that day!

Being locked out of my house for about an hour was the most comedic part of the weekend thus far. The cat simply sat in the window meowing at me- I've never heard a mocking meow before, but she was DEFINITELY mocking me lol. Obviously, I survived and made it back in, just barely though :)

I'm going grocery shopping and heading out to the beach. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

In an ideal world I would love to be vegan... too bad my hubby is a carnivore. Anyways, isn't the weather in the OC amazing today? A little on the hot side tho.

Ghost World is an awesome movie...still haven't seen Juno though. I'll have to rent it this week.

I love pasta, I don't eat it often either. I bought a pasta maker when I first started cookin and I went crazy, put on some extra pounds too. I love making my own pasta, it's a lot of fun.

And yikes, I hate being locked out of the house :s Heheh your cat's got a bit of attitude! XD

I love the heat. When I was a kid I used to HATE it when mom would roll down the windows in the car when we first got in. I wanted to sit in the heat for hours!

Juno is very witty and less music based than Ghost World but I really enjoyed it and hope you will too!

if i told you everything i would have nothing to post haha


The beach is AMAZING yet always crowded when i want to go.

I wanted to make my own pasta this week- it seems like it would be a blast, not sure I'll have time though... any good recipes??

I <3 the cat, her sass makes me laugh all the time

Thanks for your comments!
