Here we are again!

Last night, I had cooking school!
Marla came over and I taught her to make Walnut Crusted Chicken, which I cooked for her almost a year ago now. Instead of the Goat cheese mashed potatoes I made last time, I used gorgonzola. Otherwise, incredibly similar.

We were incredibly classy, drank some Bud Light, and played a little Rock Band after the flour flew and the chicken cooked. :) It was a lovely night, and now Marla can cook this dish for several of her friends who are excited about it. I'm glad to hear that people are excited about Marla's explanation of my food!

Tonight, we used up the left-over walnut chicken breast, as well as a bigol' can of crushed tomatoes that was in the cabinet from last week's Tortilla Soup situation. I made a simple tomato sauce -- 3 garlic cloves, 1 shallot, the can of crushed fire roasted tomatoes, salt, pepper, and a teaspoon of sugar. I boiled some whole wheat pasta (Barilla. It. is. deeeelicious.) and when the sauce was all bubbly and yummy, I threw the cut-up chicken in. When the pasta was done, I drained it and mixed it in with the sauce, chicken, and some cheese. I've suddenly learned how to take decent photos of my food with a crappy camera, so we'll see more photos with some actual quality. Get excited!!
