We got out early from The Course.
No-one has ring to offer me a job. I'm not depressed. Really. Just flat. Flat as flat as flat. Only flatter than that.
Last night I made my favourite pasta sauce. It's a hit-or-miss, what's-in-the-fridge kind of thing, but it's always good.
some salami (pepperoni is especailly good)
some onion (half a small one is enough for one, or a large spring onion)
crushed clove of garlic
Chop all these quite small and sizzle until the vegies have softened in the fat from the meat. Then add
chopped red capsicum (1/4 for each person)
chopped mushrooms (2-3 small ones for each person)
chopped green pepper (1/4 for each person)
chopped whatever else you've got.
Add them and sizzle until they are limp.
Add 1/2 tin of chopped or crushed tomatoes per person. I like the ones with tomato paste added, then you'll need to add some water. If you only have regular chopped tomatoes, add some tomato paste.
At this point I add about one tbs per person of my home-made pesto when I have it, and shop-bought when I don't. Or none if I don't have any. Simmer it all for a bit - 5 mins or so, or until your pasta is ready.
Finally, add about 6 chopped kalamata olives per person. I like to buy them with the stones in and take the stones out just before I add them. YMMV.
Serve pasta covered with sauce and grated parmesan. Yum!!!
Weekend starts tonight with Sandra coming over. Tomorrow we do the dreaded biennial tit-squashing ritual. Being a middle-aged woman is so much fun. But we are going to a clinic in David Jones department store, so we can browse afterward (and that's all I'll be doing with the limp plastic I have in my wallet!) Then it's SSK, so I do have something to look forward to.
