Sundays are bittersweet. It's one whole day dedicated to rest but at the same time it's the last of the weekend. Because of that, I relish it. I save my favorite books, shows, and recipes for Sunday. Alas, I'm also a procrastinator so I always have to catch up with laundry and chores. On the plus side, it's nice to start the week with a clean home. My Sunday ritual is to cook a leisurely brunch, flip through cookbooks for work inspiration, buy myself flowers and enjoy a good book or show. It's pampering & relaxing, and centers me for the coming week. It never fails to put me in a good mood even if I know a busy week is coming. What are your sunday rituals?
With the frigid weather this weekend, all I want to do is curl up on my couch and eat pasta. Since this is a 3 day weekend, I've been feeling extra lazy and relaxed. I've been depending on Seamless quite a bit lately, so I wanted to treat myself to something home made. At home, quick meals rule, I'm always so impatient to eat! For this pasta dish, grated parmesan and a scrambled egg with some pasta water make a quick sauce. A squeeze of lemon, wilted baby spinach, salt, and a lot of cracked black pepper make this a real meal. The finishing touch? Shaved black truffle in extra virgin olive oil. A bowl of this on the couch, a Golden Girls marathon, & wool socks made this my kind of bliss. How do you make Sundays special?
