I’m still waiting on news regarding the job. I’m trying to shut my brain up, as the longer it goes without me finding out, the more paranoid my thoughts become. I was more jittery and stressed and self-doubtful last night, and rather than cook, we got pizza. I should’ve cooked but I couldn’t focus. Much as I wanted to order another pizza this evening, I didn’t cave and I made some dinner.
I did like the lemon flavor throughout the dish. I think next time I will try using an actual lemon and parmesan only. I also think I’ll add a bit more pasta water than the recipe suggests. Still, I liked this one better than the Cacio e Pepe, so I think I’ll be making this again very soon.
And in spite of the fact that I had a donut at break, split a Blizzard at lunch, AND got a candy bar when we ran errands after work, I had some dessert:
The last of “the cookies.” I should make them again, but I’m in the mood for cupcakes. I might have to make some over my nice long weekend! In between all the usual weekend stuff, of course.
