Friday's Feast

Feast One Hundred & Thirty Five

Name two things that made you smile this week.
1 - Riding my motorcycle about 130 miles Tuesday evening (it was 75+ degrees).
2 - Finally mailing out about half a dozen resumes.

Fill in the blank: Don't you hate it when ________?
You forget to get a lottery ticket and your numbers come up...

When you can't go to sleep, what is your personal remedy to help yourself drift into Lullabyland?
Guess I don’t have a remedy. I just lay there and wait for sleep to arrive. Sometimes hours.

Main Course
What is something about which you've always wondered but have not yet found a good answer?
If everything started with a big bang and thus all matter was sent moving out from one point, how do some solar systems collide? Seems to me that they should only get further away. Right?

What is your favorite pasta dish?
Standard spaghetti with my home made garlic and olive oil sauce with garlic bread.

Olive oil in a pan (1/4 cup or more, it's good for you!), warm
Place ½ to ¾ of a head of coarsely chopped garlic (yes, a head, not a clove)
Warm garlic about 5 min. Allow to soften, should not fry.
Add cilantro to taste about a teaspoon for me
Add one can diced tomatoes, not drained
Increase heat and bring to bubbling before serving.

Garlic bread pizza
1 gourmet pizza crust, I use Bobbili (sp?)
Slice remaining garlic cloves as thin as possible
Butter crust with melted butter
Spread garlic slices over crust
Cover lightly with mozzarella or provolone cheese
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes to warm crust
Broil on high for 1-2 minutes to bubble and lightly brown cheese
Serve hot!

I'm conducting an important readers poll, can you spare a minute?

Mmmmm! Your spaghetti sounds great.

I do a similar thing (never can have too much garlic) up to the point of adding the tomatoes, and instead, I add a bag of asparagus (home-grown, from the freezer), and a handful of home-dried tomatoes. As soon as that's all hot, I toss in some cooked penne pasta. Mix it up and serve topped with almonds and a grating of parmesan. Yummy.

The 75 degrees sound inviting. We just got another six inches of snow. Enough, already!
