Sometimes I am not in the mood to go to the grocery store. In fact this is rare because I normally love strolling down the aisles of my favorite markets. However, last night was not one of those nights. I was tired and not really in the mood to venture out of the house. So I did what I sometimes have a hard time doing. Throwing together a last-minute meal. I used all sorts of leftover ingredients from the deepest corners of the fridge. And of course there was leftover bacon from the other night.
With bacon on my side I got to chopping, sauteing, and boiling. Meanwhile Taylor got to work in the living room.
Between the smell of the frying bacon and the fire roaring in the living room, I knew we were in for a good evening.
I began frying the bacon and then sauteing 4 cloves of garlic in the bacon fat. I then threw in some chopped brussels sprouts, broccoli and sliced red potatoes. (I blanched the red potatoes in boiling water for a minute before adding them to the other veggies) I added olive oil and some rosemary. Mixed everything together and added some cooked pasta.
This is so tasty.
Dinner is served. Enjoy!
