fettuccine and potato leek soup

Posted by ernie on March 31, 2008

so i’ve been wanting to make a nice tasty soup for a while. maybe a soup i haven’t made or eaten a lot of instead of the broccoli cheddar and tomato i usually do (i won’t even link those). not that those soups aren’t delicious and favorites of mine, but i want to expand my menu rather than be doomed to repeat it. so i looked around the kitchen and the internet and settled on a potato soup. maybe a potato and leek soup. i’ve never worked with leeks before, so what the hell? there’s a first time for everything.

except some things. but i don’t want to talk about those things. because they never happen.

as for the fettuccine, it’s a delicious pasta. what else is there to discuss?

pascetti squash

Posted by ernie on March 17, 2008

we happened upon a big ol’ squash and needed to do something with it.  so this is what we did:

this was the perfect dish…and recipe.  it’s super easy, quick, and absolutely friggin’ delicious.  the squash comes out nicely pasta-esque with just enough of a crunch to keep you interested.  the flavors of all the vegetables mix together perfectly and although the dish would have been great without it, the crumbled feta is just the punch it needs to send it over the top.

egg-tasm #2

Posted by ernie on March 6, 2008

on tonight’s menu: more eggs.

eggs! form of, quiche!

inspired by food television, i decided to tackle my first quiche. i’ve had delicious quiche before, but never made it myself. in general, my “first time” endeavors into fooding are riddled with regret, remorse, and night terrors. in short: hunger wins.

tonight would be different. tonight i would tackle my foe with unfettered valor. i would not hold back and i would not back down. tonight i would hack and slash and bake until the agents of my pantry were sufficiently subdued.

tonight would be a long hard battle against the forces of egg and hunger.

saturday morning: hash browns

Posted by ernie on February 24, 2008

so there we were. a lazy saturday morning, putting off getting up for as long as we possible could. and that’s when she said it. those 4 fateful words.

“wanna make hash browns?”

“oh hellz yeah,” i thought. “i’m all up ons.”

of course what i actually said was “great idea honey, and some scrambled eggs to boot.” but when i write the movie of my life, it’ll come out that first way.

eggs for breakfast

Posted by ernie on February 21, 2008

i started the day by sleeping till noon. that’s a good start. when you’re in bed that long the only things that really get you up are hunger, the progressively increasing necessity to scratch various parts of your body, and the overwhelming stink of your own mouth. the problem then becomes how to remedy all of these things and in what order.

midnight snacking

just as predicted, the night ended with a second dinner. leftovers yet again. this time courtesy of sarah and her scrumptious eggplant parmigiana together with what was left of a can of Heinz vegetarian beans (they make non-vegetarian beans?). mmm…
