Linguni with Muscles

**Warning: You are going to need a ticket to this post... to this gun post. Because there's so many muscles!** BA-DU-DUM-CHHH

I have had these white wine and garlic roasted muscles in my freezer for a week or two, and tonight they were finally used! Of course I paired them with a delicous bed of linguini. Delicious!

I seasoned the linguini with:

garlic powder
 italian seasoning

Then topped it off with:

white truffle oil
parmesean cheese

I was slightly torn when I was getting ready to plate the food because I had one perfect plate, made by Connor, and then about 6 so-so plates I found at a thrift shop. The so-so plates are usually perfect for my food, but linguni calls for a slightly deeper plate, and that is what Connor's offers. So he proposed this: "Why don't we just be super cute and eat off of the same plate?" So we did.

PS. This whole dinner took us roughly 30 minutes to cook and eat. :)

Back with Breakfast

1. I want to thank you guys for continuing to comment on here through my absence. I can't even believe that people are being so kind, and it is really encouraging to keep on going. :)

I'm kind of afraid to count how long it has been since I last posted on here... because I know it has been an unruly amount of time. So for that, I applogize. I think what I was originally set on doing with this blog is documenting the cool things that I make and eat. But I think that from now on, I will just document the things that I eat, cool or not.

Starting with this morning...

 While I cooked the pancakes, Connor did our dishes. They were piling up out of control. Oops

Pancakes made with pancake mix from the dollar store and a few frozen blueberries. These bowls are from the dollar store too! Why are we eating pancakes out of bowls, you might ask? Well, because in this apartment, we don't get around to running the dishwasher often enough. And for some reason, bowls and forks are always the first to run out.

Any cool new ways you guys like to cook pancakes? I'm always looking for a new fruit to put in them that tastes super duper yummy
