Things have been a little hectic around here. I am continuing with my course although everything in me is screaming, “QUIT NOW”! Yeah, it’s that bad. I feel like a big and ugly cry is slowing coming to a rolling boil and waiting to spill over. Family, watch out or better run, save yourselves, unfortunately it’s too late for me. You are probably thinking, “What are you doing blogging? Go study! Research more info on psycholinguistics! Write another 12 page lesson plan!” I know, I know but right now I just have to pretend for another hour that all I care about is a plate of noodles. Creamy, tomatoey, gooey noodles. After all, they have saved us time and time again.
No time to make dinner? A quick pasta is coming right up! Both Brad and I have been cranking out these pasta recipes for the last two months-remaking old favourites and creating new ones. There is something so comforting in being able to complete a task in 30 minutes flat. I wish it was true for everything else in life. I like to finish things. I can’t stand the ambiguity and the process. Yes, it’s making me stronger but it doesn’t mean I have to enjoy it!
If your life is anything like mine right now I am going to help you out and give you a great list of quick and easy dinner recipes from around the web. You are welcome!
