Finally. I have my candy drawer at the office reloaded. I accidentally let my supply run out. At one point I resorted to looking for (and failing to find) stale cinnamon bears in the back of a drawer in co-worker’s desk.
Last night I tried a terrific recipe: roasted asparagus and walnut crema. Basically you make hummus out of walnuts and then spread it on a plate of pasta and cover with roasted asparagus and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. The recipe calls for some froufrou cheese but we used Parmesan. Bob and I each hoovered a giant plate. (aside: hey! my spellcheck automatically changed hoovered to hovered, bastards!)Â I suspect you could put that crema on just about anything and it would be delicious. I might have to have a crema and Nutella sandwich tomorrow.
I’m not going to say too much about Lost. I was super annoyed when I turned off the TV last night. I had to wind down and try to get to sleep because it was so late. I managed to get to sleep but then I woke up at 3:30a and started thinking about it again and couldn’t sleep. I passed the time by torturing Bob who was in dead-to-the-world mode. I kept putting my feet on him and tickling his arms and whispering that I couldn’t sleep. He just kept snoring. I’m going to put a Sharpie in the nightstand for next time.
So I’m functioning on 4 hours of sleep today which was okay until about 3pm when I felt like I’d been beaten and left for dead. I punched holes in filing and organized things that could be done later. I’m going to go to bed at about 7p.
Back to Lost, I was less annoyed when I woke up this morning but I still think the last 15 minutes was overly stupid.
Here’s my question: where did that runway come from? (That wasn’t the part I thought was stupid.)
This morning I read a comment thread on the episode and the two best comments were from people who never saw the show. One guy said he’d seen the commercials and he’d had an idea that [how the show ended] was where the show was going. What a liar! The other person said he’d never seen the show and proceeded to write a 500 word comment with his thoughts about it.
hummus out of walnuts … That sounds happy.
I’m glad you got a refill on your candy drawer. Nobody wants an empty candy drawer. My cousin resorted to eating dry Ovaltine once when she was desperately searching for chocolate.
That recipe sounds scrumptious! I’ll have to give it a try. Love asparagus. Love walnuts. LOVE Nutella.
The recipe looked so incredible that I was unable to focus on the rest of your post. I’ll have to go back & re-read it when I’m not hungry!
I am going to make that asparagus dish IMMEDIATELY.
It seems that a lot of people were annoyed by the “Lost” finale. I have yet to finish the “Chuck” season finale, though it seemed to be going well in its campy fashion. “Fringe” ended with a nice cliffhanger. Thank goodness “Burn Notice” will start again soon. It’s been too long.
