pasta madness

lots of fluff

A
lot of bloggers take on monthly challenges and those are not easy to do but I took on an annual challenge and thats even harder to do. Oh people make little themes so that its easy like monday madness and wednesday nakedness but thats cheating, come up with content on your own. I wanted to do a post a day. Believe me its easy to fill your blog with all kinds of crap and I have done it, all you have to do is search 'jokes', or 'poems' and you will see where I tried to fill some space. The deal here is that I tried with whatever success to post a 'relevent' post every day and relevency in this case was of a culinary sort. I think I did OK. Next year I am going to post like a mofo(for my foreign readers 'mofo' means I will do things with no purpose) so 2008 has its own little place in history, it was a year with 'purpose'.

By now you might have figured out that I will over do just about anything, from jokes to puns to you name it, I even try and be pathetic but none of it works like my love for food. You might remember how worked up I get over chile, well I get the same way over pasta. I know, I know I profess this funny little obsession with french cooking but the only thing french about me is the abundant use of butter, cream and cheese, that's french isnt it and pasta is italian, OK so maybe it is things latin. My french friends refuse to believe or even accept that they are latin. Latin is spanish and food from spain is ick to me, I am spanish but I am spanish from the southwest so my food isnt ick...thus my dilemna. Whats my point? Pasta....ah blah blah blah....



This pasta is a spinach ravioli with a chorizo-chicharron filling and queso de oaxaca served with a creamy goat cheese sauce and chile sprinkles. Try it, its that good.

Awesome! I think you've been doing really well on the food front.

My blog started with knitting, but I didn't have enough knitting steam to keep that up. I don't have enough steam in any one area, really, so it ended up being a dilettante's blog. Ninety-nine percent original, at least.

Oh for freak sake doggie, I love pasta and this looks amazing - I think I am going to have to walk away from you because the torment is just simply too much to bear!!!! lolololol!!!

Anette said...

Those look excellent! And with the spinach, look what a nice color, and we both now that the taste is delicious. Well you know, cause you ate it, and I know based on my imagination.

Marjie said...

As I may someday explain, I don't know where my ancestors are from, so I just cook what I like. But at least you're funny. I don't do funny so well; I leave that to my dearly beloved. I guess there are enough people who like whatever you post that it's working out, isn't it?

doggybloggy said...

Beth: and they tasted freakin' fantastic....I cant wait to have another plate

noble pig: these were good and they were a last minute 'throw together'

marjie: I was just blabbing away last night, when I re-read it this morning I was tempted to edit but I didnt...

Nirvana said...

Wow! This looks wonderful -- just looking at the ravioli is making me hungry -- I really should stop looking at food blogs while I'm in the office! :) Love your blog!

Love your attitude to food - fusion and sharing and learning from one another is what good food is all about!

Sure, remember the history, recognise authenticity but never be too narrow minded to share and learn.

Your food site rocks - would love to try the food one day.
