Food Revolution Friday #5 – the one about cakePosted: May 21, 2010
It seems like if I didn’t hold myself to these posts, I would never write here at all! The problem is a mix of twitter and never being near a computer when I have post ideas. I’ll either just have a one line story or be too tired/brain dead by the time I have time to write a post that it just doesn’t happen.
Last night this happened:
And you would think that I was salivating over some delicacies and got a little too close. Well that’s not the case at all. Bobby and I went to get some good old healthy spinach for dinner and he ran off to go look at the cakes/fondle some bread. I bent down to keep him from smooshing everything and didn’t notice the glass and totally slammed my forehead into the glass then FELL OVER ONTO THE GROCERY STORE FLOOR LIKE A DAZED BIRD THAT JUST FLEW INTO A WINDOW.
I’m not kidding, it was hard to get up. Luckily NO ONE HELPED ME. *sarcasm* then I went to pay and let Bobby pet the plastic seeing eye dog and drove home and made dinner and wondered to Brent if I had a concussion since I was all dizzy and barfy feeling.
So there you go, I’m NOT cake obsessed!!
On the other hand, I DID eat gourmet cupcakes FOR DINNER last Saturday night. They were absolutely stellar. I had 2 and instantly regretted it. Don’t get me wrong, they were fabulous but I immediately felt that feeling of sugar overload. The one I get when I have been ‘good’ about my sugar intake and then go temporarily insane.
You would think that after all of this I would have a recipe for healthy cupcakes for you, but I don’t. Such a thing, sadly, does not exist. What I CAN tell you about is what I made with all that spinach.
What you will need (amounts approximate):
-1/2C goat cheese (crumbled)
-4C or more uncooked spinach (washed)
-4C cherry tomatoes (washed and halved)
-3-4 minced garlic cloves
-4T olive oil
-freshly ground black pepper (lots! If it looks like too much, add more)
Boil your noodles in salted water (always salt your pasta water people! if you are worried about sodium, make sure the rest of your meal is salt less)
Cook up the tomatoes and garlic in a hot pan with olive oil until the tomatoes just start to break down. Add 1/2C pasta water. Cover to keep warm.
Toss cooked pasta with spinach until in wilts
Add tomato mixture, cheese and pepper and stir to coat
Eat that shit up.
