What you need:

  • 2-3 packs of basil
  • cherry tomatoes
  • 4 tbs. olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • bow tie pasta
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bacon for the meat-lovers

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook pasta as directed on the box. It really depends on the brand you get. I like to add a bit of salt to the water before it boils and a teaspoon of olive oil so that the pasta does not stick.
  2. While that’s cooking prep the bacon. Mushy and I like to cut off the fat from the bacon, so we use an entire package of the bacon. Cut these into little pieces then fry as usual.
  3. Meanwhile, mince the garlic. I like to mix pre-minced garlic with freshly chopped ones. It just makes everything faster, but fresh garlic tastes better.
  4. Chop the basil into strips.
  5. In a bowl, mix together about 3-4 tbs. of olive oil, basil, and garlic.
  6. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  7. When the pasta is cooked, drain, and then mix in the olive oil, basil, garlic mix.
  8. Top everything off with bacon.
  9. Slice cherry tomatoes in half and then add to the pasta for color.
  10. ENJOY!!!

You can also add cheese for saltiness instead of salt.

Mushy makes this so much better than I do since this is her recipe. I’m putting it up here because I want to save this for myself and be able to come back to it whenever I want a repeat.

What would have been a relatively normal dream — in fact, it would have been a PLEASANT dream — is officially considered a nightmare when Komodo Dragons are involved.

I think it was a metaphor for the bar. Really. In every part of my dream, I had to cross these dragons just to go off and be able to do fun things with my friends. I was terrified. At one point, one of the dragons actually stood on two hind legs and started walking towards me. Tell me that’s not a nightmare and I will set one off on you. We’ll see how you feel then.
