I have been sitting at my computer for 15 minutes trying to write this first sentence. My brain is fried. I know you might be sick of hearing about my pregnancy, but with a little over 2 weeks to go it's CONSUMING MY LIFE. If you've ever been pregnant, you know the end seems like an eternity. My energy level is, well, gone. There is no energy level. I want to cook and eat, but I don't want to physically do it. You do it. Do it for me. All of you, come over and make me something different. I'll have small bites of everything until I get super full and pass out, and then the baby will just wake me up when she's ready to be born. This is a good, strange plan.
Ok but for real, enough nonsense talk. This pasta dish I made last night is perfect for those times you want a balanced meal, but you don't have the time or ENERGY to pull it off. Store-bought pesto sauce, shaved brussel sprouts (which you can do with a knife or even buy in a bag) and your favorite pasta. Cheese, salt and pepper, delicious. I lightly sautéed the brussel sprouts in olive oil, seasoned them, and then threw everything together in the pasta pot. It was delicious!
Tonight I am going to attempt something with more steps that will require more brain power...
Pray for me.
