This is what happens when Chip has to work late...

Dirty Gin Martini.
Dinner.
The English Home.

Why am I reading home design magazines? Well, I got something new, and I am trying to make it feel like mine. Y'all know how that is! I'm getting inspiration from some of my favorite sources. Unfortunately, my absolute favorite source is not around anymore. Cottage Living - my inspiration during my first few years of home ownership - is no longer in print. Sad, isn't it?

My dinner, however, is not sad. It is wonderful. Its a play on a dish from Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Suppers. Whole Wheat Penne with Masses of Broccoli, Green Olives, and Pine Nuts. No kidding - that's the name of the recipe. I added some sauteed kale and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Yum! Next time, I think I'll add a chopped tomato, too.

Stay tuned for my new home project...

Looks like you had a nice evening at home! The pasta looks very yummy, I have been craving pasta, but Brian says it's "too heavy" for supper. I might have to make some up for lunch during the week.
