Friday & Saturday Pt. 1

Good times had by all. We picked up Sandy before going on our weekly shopping excursion. First stop: Circuit City! They're going out of business you know. Just had to see if they had anything good at rock bottom prices. There was an interesting sort of epiphany. The reason they went out of business? No one wanted to pay their jacked up prices. Even at 40% off most of their stuff was still more expensive than, say, Walmart. The absolutely hilarious part is that they're liquidating everything! Display shelves, counters, rugs, signs . . . . . those anti-left scanners at the front of the store! $250 for the pair! HA! "Everything must go" really means "Everything must go".

When we finally got back home we made an interesting recipe I found in the back of a magazine. MMmmmMMmmm magazine food. *drools* We'll have to make it again one day cuz I kind of borked the recipe, but it was good. We went by the recipe, but the pasta we picked up was almost 3x what the recipe called for. *oops* So here, for your dining pleasure, is the amended version. (ingredients gotten at HEB, if you live far away your store may sell differently)

1 bag of bowtie pasta (we got 16oz of the colorful garden ones), 1 onion, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 bag of spinach, 2 portobello mushroom caps, olive oil. You can also add thyme or italian seasoning. Oh, and parmasan cheese. Just boil up the pasta, chop up all the other stuff (minus the oil, duh), drizzle some oil in another pan, lightly cook the rest of the ingredients (minus the cheese), drain the pasta, mix everything together (yes, that includes the cheese) and voila! Yummers. It's fancy and easy and cheapish. Lizzy's Tip: When you're buying the portobellos, make sure the produce guy isn't watching and snap off the stems before you weigh them. You're not gonna use 'em, don't bother paying for 'em. You can get 2 caps for about $2.

In honor of Friday the 13th we watched 'Friday the 13th Part 3' in 3D! It was awesome! Being all close to the screen there was some double vision issues, but it was still mind-blowing. ^_^ It was like the tv was a diarama box. Depth like you can't even get with HD. There were some cheesy parts that you could tell were put in just to display the wonderful (at the time :-p) 3D technology, but it was the best kind of cheese.
