Since Mat worked from 12-8 today and I’ve been pretty lazy all day, I decided to do an easy dinner. Enter spaghetti. I threw a salad together ahead of time while making my lunch for tomorrow so I wouldn’t have to do everything at the same time.
As I was making the salad and my lunch, I noticed the bag of frozen stir-fry veggies in the freezer that we haven’t used in a while. I thought that could be a good addition to the spaghetti sauce, just to make it more interesting. Yeah, the veggies are more “Asian” and spaghetti is more “Italian,” but who cares?
I started by heating some olive oil in the skillet. I threw in the veggies and sprinkled some red pepper flakes in to give it some kick. The sauce I used is the roasted garlic from Trader Joe’s that already has a good garlic flavor, so I didn’t bother adding anymore. (I’m also lazy today, remember?). Once the veggies were softened I poured the sauce in and let it heat. The last thing was three tablespoons of nutritional yeast and letting it heat just a bit more. I poured it on the pasta and voila! Spaghetti with nutritional yeast with a twist!
You know how I’ve been chocolate wasted lately? Well Mat came home from work tonight with blondies from the demo station at work. There were two of them. What did I do? I inhaled one without even thinking.
Fortunately I had enough sense to leave the last one for Mat.
And suddenly it’s 9:20 on Sunday night. Where did the weekend go??
