There are only a few dishes that evoke pure happiness from people. Chocolate can sometimes do it. Freshly made bread has that power, always. And stuffed shells. People love stuffed shells!
Baked stuffed shells were one of the first things I ever learned how to cook. And ’til this day, they’re still one of my favorite dishes to make because of how easy and delicious they are. Every single time. They never get old. Kids love them, adults love them—everyone!
I love a quick pasta, don’t you? It’s the perfect thing to have in your back pocket when it’s cold and chilly outside. I’m not gonna lie, I sometimes struggle with making these quick pastas interesting. A lot of times it’s just boring red marinara sauce and cheese. But Josh is great at this, grabbing ingredients out of our produce drawers and combining foods together that I wouldn’t normally think of.
This pasta is a play off of a pasta he threw together a few months ago. It has cauliflower, lots of lemon, sautéed kale and best of all…bacon.
I feel like I haven’t talked about my super exciting life lately. Well, I spent the weekend doing work, working out and going to a Super Bowl party where I ate so many snacks that Monday required vegan meals ONLY. That halftime show was one of the most boring things my eyes have ever experienced. I almost fell asleep but somehow I made it through. One thing that dramatically helped were these animal-style cheeseburger empanadas. They were unreal.
I might have to try and recreate them soon!
I’m currently plotting to have a yard sale and am simultaneously excited and nervous to let so many things go. Will I regret selling all my things? I barely use them so hopefully not. I actually love getting rid of things so hopefully I’ll be ok. I’m guessing I won’t miss them and will appreciate the extra pocket money it will provide me.
