My Stay At Home Tuesday!

Just finished this...not quite a cozy British mystery...it was too much of a page turner...and sooooo good...a neighbor is found dead in his bathtub...is this suicide or murder? The family next door...what do they have to do with this? The answer? It's complicated!

Up next? Thirty somethings...marriage...that says it all?
Making this for dinner...pasta shells with roasted butternut squash and ricotta cheese! It's from Martha! You sauté the seeds and the gunk the seeds are connected to in a pan until the gunk disappears...you have crispy seeds left that you then use on top of the pasta...oh...and you sauté the squash...in the same pan...basically other than cooking the pasta it's a one pan dinner. The fresh sage leaves are sautéed, too, until crispy...a bit of parmesano reggiano on top...and you have dinner!
Today is Roxie's birthday! Happy Birthday to my sweet Roxie Blue! She is four! I can't believe it but she was already a year old when we got her! Of course there will be a small cake. Den says she wants chocolate? But she can't have chocolate so...we shall see!
When we got her...
Now...she has more swagger/swaggah now...don't you think?
Off to vacuum and clean because we took the afternoon off yesterday to see The Martian. It was fantastic! I saw an interview with the author where he said he could not give the book away for 99 cents at Amazon when he first published it! Loved Matt Damon in this movie!



  1. I can't wait to see The Martian! How does Den feel about meatless dinners? Carl's not crazy about them.

    1. It was so good. He is fine with no meat...he had chili for lunch!

  2. Oh, happy birthday to Roxie Blue! I can't believe it's been that many years, either. Lucy's hat is adorable.

    Love the look of that dinner....and The Marriage Pact. Today I got Corrupted from NetGalley...Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors. Enjoy your week!
