Today was a busy day. Started out with forgetting to turn off my alarm this morning, so I was up 3 hours earlier than planned. Gymboree with my niece, did some work, shopped for a friend’s baby shower gift, took care of some personal errands, did a milk tea run and finally home to play with my niece. Contemplated a trip to the gym but was too exhausted from the running around. My days off are never really “off”, it’s the only time I really get to take care of things.
I was starving pretty badly when I got home so I put together a quick pasta to satiate my need for food. A few ingredients from the fridge and pantry and it was a satisfying quick dinner. I went for more veggies than pasta tonight, though I’m trying to eat better; I still couldn’t resist adding bacon because well… it’s bacon! I didn’t bother with a fancy pretty pictures tonight, so I apologize for the quick shots! After this post, I’m dragging my incredibly weary bum to bed, tomorrow is another long day.
5 Thick-Cut Bacon strips, sliced
1/2 Lbs Penne Rigate, cooked per package direction
1/2 lbs Mini Heirloom Tomatoes, cut in half
2 cups Crimini Mushrooms, quartered
2 cups Baby Zucchini, sliced

1/2 cup Onions, finely diced

Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

7. Serve pasta topped with crispy bacon and because I had some in the fridge, goat cheese
20 minutes and I’m satisfied! Now it’s time for bed, good night world!
