Well, I finally did it.
I finally gave in and made pasta.
Cacio e pepe, to be precise (though I did have to substitute Parmesan for pecorino…and I also added peas and red pepper flakes at the end…so…not exactly traditional).
Even with the modifications, though, it was an admittedly very comforting bowl of pasta. Actually, to be honest, I can’t remember the last time I made pasta at home. Wheat-based pasta, I mean. I kind of started cutting it out of my regular rotation a couple of years ago when I was working to get better results on my workout regimen, and I just, never introduced it back.
Time went by surprisingly quickly today. Maybe it’s just something about Sunday…
Or maybe I’m starting to get used to this being indoors indefinitely thing.
I really hope it’s the former.
