Hi guys! Just a quickie recap of dinner last night. I was pooped, but you know I wanted nothing more than to cook in my kitchen and make a fabbo meal. When I’m super tired I run towards comfort foods. Being tired and worn out is what sends me to comfort food land. Not sadness, or stress, or being overwhelmed with projects. It’s being dog-ass tired. What makes you reach for comfort foods?
One of my new favorite comfort foods I make is my pumpkin pasta which is cheesy creamy goodness and loaded with veggies. Sometimes I call it pumpkin mac’n cheese. I’m going back and forth on names because I can’t fully decide what to call it!
Can you tell which side is Scott’s?
Creamy pumpkin made the sauce that I thinned out with a bit of chicken stock. You can totally use veggie, wine, or even mushroom stock to thin it. I just prefer chicken. Veggies include!
- Sundried tomatoes
- Chopped spinach
- Roasted garlic chicken sausage
- Topped with really good quality cheddar
Holy delicious, right? Whole wheat penne is the pasta of choice for me. It holds sauce really well and I just prefer it over an elbow or rotini.
Scott and I watched some Kathy Griffin and sipped on some wine:
We had this leftover from our trip! It was a blend wine from Spain. And then I got out a munchie just because.
Popcorn! Perfect light snack for the evening. I conked out in bed by 10:30!
