made a pasta sauce tonight that i've been seeing around the blog world and it was pretty damn good. maybe i shouldn't have read all the glowing comments b/c it may have been overhyped, but i can say that i'm definitely a fan and that i'm finding myself thinking about now, hours after dinner is over and belly is still full.

so, for lovely pictures and recipe with instructions go here or here. it was the beautiful simplicity of the sauce that got me intrigued, just a 28 0z can of san marzano tomatoes, 5 tablespoons butter, and one onion peeled and cut in half (ends trimmed off, obvi). plop all of it in a saucepan and let simmer for 45-50 minutes. take out the onion and serve over pasta of your choice. (i decided to save the onion remains for eating with some toast and cheese as a snack or for breakfast. man, i wish i liked eggs; i bet that would go awesome.) i went with barilla multigrain linguine and it was pretty magical. i did add some parm and some basil. and we had a mixed green salad and warm baguette with olive oil, balsamic, and minced garlic. hell yeah. oh, two classes of cupcake vineyard cab also.

sore from my roller skating yesterday, but in a nice subtle way. did what seems like not much today, but given my current exhaustion, i must have done enough. so it's to bed early over here and then hopefully a crazy productive thursday.

but here's to the fast-approaching end of the week! i've got burn out and wintercrazy like nobody's business. somebody get this bitch some sunshine and a cocktail. or else.
