Wednesday Wonderfuls

Since I missed my Tuesday 10, I thought I'd bring you a Wednesday list of wonderful things from today instead.

1. only 1 kiddo to see today
2. midterm exam finished
3. lunch at Paradise Bakery with Kellie
4. trip to Cold Stone with Shawn to use our 20% off coupon. Now that we're in triple digits around here, all I want is ice cream, popsicles, slushies and light meals. Good thing the coupon is good till 6/3o, we might need it again :)
5. grad school app submitted
6. a little bit of crafty time--banner cutting and finally got my March Project 12 page finished. Not my favorite, but it's done and no longer on my to do list.

7. new recipe for dinner. I rummaged through my recipe files to find a couple new ones to try this week and came up with this pasta recipe that I think is from cooking light. It was pretty tasty.

Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Pasta

3 large red bell peppers (I used 2)
3 t olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 c broth
2 T lemon juice
2 t sugar (I used 1 and you could probably go without)
3/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t crushed red pepper
1/4 c basil
4 c cooked bow tie pasta (I used brown rice rotini)
1/c c goat cheese, crumbled

Cut peppers in half and remove seeds. Flatten on baking sheet and broil for 8 minutes or until blackened. Place in zip top bag for 20 minutes. Remove skin and place in blender.

Heat 2 t oil over medium heat and add garlic. Saute for 1 minute, remove from heat and let sit for five minutes. Add garlic mixture, 1 t oil, broth and next 5 ingredients to blender and process until smooth. Combine red pepper mixture with basil and pasta. Sprinkle with goat cheese.

Quite tasty and easy.

Happy Wednesday!

Wonderful Wednesday ... I like it! Too bad I fell off the blogging wagon, LOL. My goal is to catch up tomorrow. Keeping up with 2 blogs is tough ... I'm thinking I might try to do a format for my personal one ... like a specific topic for certain days. Then I might actually be able to blog ahead ... we'll see, but one of them would be "Meals on Monday" about what we're eating/cooking/baking :).

Happy Day!

mmm! Looks delicious!

I should really try more recipes. Alas, I usually just make it up as I go. LOL. That being said, I DID make homemade granola bars the other day! From scratch... without a recipe. And they are fabulous if I do say so myself... :-)
