Aahhh, Friday. The best day of the week, unless it’s a pay-week. Every year, I swear I’m going to take Black Friday off, just because it always makes for such a long work day. But every year, I don’t, because I have coworkers who cook Thanksgiving meals for far more than the 3 people I cook for (one of them being myself), and I feel guilty asking for time off. So, I don’t, and I whine about being stuck at work all day. And I make cupcakes to take to my coworkers.
But when I got home, I got to work on a bowl of comfort food.
Pasta. With The Sauce.
Man this stuff is GOOD. And so simple. A can of whole, peeled tomatoes, 5 Tbsp. of butter and an onion (although if you want to get technical, you’re supposed to cut the onion in half, but I didn’t bother). 45 minutes later, it’s a tangy-sweet sauce that perfectly coats your pasta and is perfect for sopping up with some chewy, crusty bread.
A perfect end to the week.And once again, I prove to be a crappy food blogger…How did I not know there was a new bakery coming town, or that it opened today? It’s apparently called Buttercrust, and (from what I’ve heard) is akin to a Great Harvest, but local. Even though I like baking my own bread, it’ll be nice having a local bakery in town again. I’m going to check it out tomorrow!
