Ever have one of those nights where you can’t decide what you want to eat? Happens to me all the time, it’s usually when I am PMSing out of control and can’t decide between mac and cheese and hot wings. Then things like this happen.
Just last week, I came home from work knowing that the most ambitious dish I could possibly pull off had something to do with pasta. I was dog tired, and as previously mentioned, suffering from a case of the menzies. These things, compounded with the fact that all I wanted in the world was a giant taco, really left me with no other choice.
I was making pasta that tasted like a taco, or bust. After I got past the fact that it didn’t taste like traditional italian, I sort of liked it. If you ask Brian, I evidently really liked it, because I ate enough pasta to sustain a small militia.
