Chicken, butternut, sage and pasta in a creamy sauce that is topped with cheddar cheese and baked to perfection. Now that’s my kind of Monday night dinner. It’s even better if you eat it with a spoon – you can fit more into your mouth that way (free tip; I’m generous like that). 😀
A few years ago I made a tuna and broccoli quiche and the combination stayed with me – I could taste the contrasting textures, the saltiness of the tuna versus the freshness of the broccoli when just thinking about it; it really was a culinary revelation in my opinion. 😉 When I then made this broccoli and tuna fusilli a few days ago, I was super angry at myself for waiting so long to marry these two ingredients again, and at the same time I wanted to kiss myself (if that’s even possible) for indulging in these flavours. Try it, it really will change your life for the better. 😀
With the change of the season comes a change in our weekly dinner menu. Salads are becoming fewer and curries and pasta dishes are rising to the occasion. I know that when summer comes in a few months I might regret this, but for now I’m indulging in the comfort of cream, bacon, chicken and pasta. Now pass me my blanky. 😉
Yesterday we celebrated my hubby’s birthday. We have a strict no-working-on-your-birthday policy in order to spend time together on the special day – and we had so much fun! The celebrations revolved around doughnuts, pies, seafood platters, ice cream and pizza (not all at once, thank goodness).
