A random post about a random day…

Today I started to set up my external hard drive, 320GB of space…yummy. Little did I know it would take up half a day to format the darned thing!! I got this little fella:

iomega 320GB rugged Hard Drive

So it’s 71% formatted now, but I started a few hours ago!!! I can’t wait to back up all my photos on it. I plan to upgrade to a new computer once I can afford it so hopefully transferring everything will be a b-r-e-e-z-e!!

In the meantime I decided to do something productive, like go out and take pictures with the new lens:

70-200mm f4 L (my first L lens!!!@@!!) non-IS

But it started to rain, so to not get my precious photo equipment wet, I put the camera away, and went to Fairway supermarket. Decided to make a penne puttanesca because I saw someone making it on tv last night and it seemed pretty easy to make, plus I made a mental note of the ingredients so I didn’t have to peruse a recipe and jot down a lengthy list of stuff. I honestly will make anything with anchovies in it. I am a big anchovy fan, just not really on pizza, but on everything else, I am game. Which reminds me that my favorite show is on tonight….

Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel!!

Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel!!

It’s a new season! How exciting! I don’t like cooking shows, but I LOOOVE food travel shows, like No Reservations. I think I can give Bourdain and Zimmern a run for their money, I mean I would eat (or at least try) almost anything that have eaten on their shows…with the exception of bugs and balut.

Anyways here’s a pic of the puttanesca sauce I ended up making in my FAB leafy green Le Creuset pot that my friends Nina and Anne got me for my bridal shower last year. I added fresh penne pasta from Fairway and some of the pasta water to thicken the sauce. I paired it with a leafy green romaine and radicchio salad with a homemade lemon vinaigrette It got the thumbs up from Steve!
