Food For Friday 1/5 – 1/18/2009

So after much running around to get Darling Hubby an eye exam and new glasses (since he hasn’t been since May 2004…and started noticing he couldn’t see as well anymore), some yarn for a sweater that I want to work on (after I start working on Darling Hubby’s sweater again and finish up the stash busting dog blankets to get rid of some of those little balls of yarn that are taking up room in my yarn box) and to the game store for comics, we decided it was time to finally sit down for leftovers for dinner, make our grocery list, update the freezer list (the one in the basement), do the dishes and clean out the fridge (egads!)   Lord only knows how long some of that stuff was in there… But now, I have a fridge free of the green mold monster and lots of space to put the food from tomorrow’s grocery trip.  What a way to start 2009!

  1. Here is the Penne a la Vodka recipe!

    I use angel hair, it’s my preferred pasta, and I mentioned that I added browned hamburger to it. Hope you try it, and enjoy!

    pasta of your choice, cooked and drained
    1 onion, chopped
    1/2 tsp. salt (I never use it)
    1/4 tsp. pepper (don’t use this either)
    1/3 c. vodka, OR chicken broth (I use the broth)
    1 can diced tomatoes w/ italian seasoning, or basil, garlic, and oregano
    1/4 c. tomato paste
    1 c. heavy cream
    3/4 c. hot water

    Cook ground beef w/ diced onions (or saute onions alone if skipping the beef) until done. Drain, return to pan. Add brother or vodka, bring to boil. Stir in tomatoes with juices and tomato paste, along with hot water. Boil until paste has dissolved. Slowly add heavy cream, constantly stirring. Bring to boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.

    Serve over cooked pasta.
