So the man and I (but mostly me) have decided that we will be starting a new weekly tradition. We’re calling it Test-It Tuesdays. (We’re open for suggestions on what to call it…I’m not sold)
What it boils down to, dear friends, is that I talk the sumptuous talk, but I don’t walk the delectable walk. What am I on about? Well, I say I am a foodie. I say how much I love food. Yet, I rarely, and I mean RARELY, ever try any new recipes. Gasp! I know, shocking! So the point of this tradition, a challenge if you will, is to expand our culinary knowledge, and explore the unknown tastes the world has to offer. Every Tuesday, one of us will pick a new recipe to try. It has to come from either one of my (many) cookbooks, or my Recipe board on Pinterest. And when we’re through with that, which is highly unlikely since I spend my life on Pinterest, we will move on to the greater source known as “The Internet”. Exciting, yes?
So, tonight, on our debut of Test-It Tuesday (seriously, not sold on the name), I have first choice. So I have picked Creamy Pea and Bacon Pasta. Sounds boring? Just you wait… But honestly, there’s bacon. There’s pasta. And peas (which we love). There’s even “Creamy”. What’s not to LOVE?
In about 4.5 hours, I will start my recipe, and photograph the whole experiment. Then I will post it. Along with the link to the recipe.
Fair warning though, next week will have to be on a different day, since we are going to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers next Tuesday. Oh Em Gee, I cannot wait! And also, in other news, I got a tattoo. A post will follow with those details.
For now, I will pore over the recipe, and start mentally preparing, and maybe even a little actual drooling. And again, any suggestions on the name of our experiment/quest/challenge WILL be considered. Anything.
Much Love, as always.
