Lemon + Arugula Campanelle

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI’m house/dog sitting. I hate sitting on things. I was the girl who never babysat. Like, how on earth would anyone believe that I am qualified to watch their offspring? I feel the same way about canines and homes. I could set either on fire and I don’t need that on my conscience.

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 presetI’m just full of angst tonight. Where do I sit? Where do I sleep? What if the pooch digs a hole in the backyard and runs away? MY MIND NEVER STOPS.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI knew I had to cook to get my mind off all of the things I could ruin. I needed something with very few steps and only one burner – decreases risk of burning down the house!


Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetThis was more than perfect. One pot, one bowl and a handful of ingredients was all I needed. Light, fresh and utterly satisfying. I’ve got leftovers for lunch and dinner.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetPlus side: They’ve got every channel I could ever dream of and about 8 bottles of red wine for the taking.
