Last weekend was a big weekend for me — I moved! This was a big move for me…it’s my first place! I’ve been living at home since I graduated a year ago to save money and get some experience in my chosen career path. I’ve spent the last few months (the last few years really, if you count kitchen-related Christmas gifts) gathering everything I need, and the last week getting settled in.
It’s been a week of many firsts, and tonight I had another first: my first home-cooked meal in my new place! Granted, it wasn’t anything fancy, as I don’t have much food in the house yet, but I certainly enjoyed it, even if only because I ate it at my own dining room table with a glass of wine in hand and one of my favorite movies playing in the background.
Just another example of how food so often is involved in making memories!
By the way, here’s what I made: whole grain pasta, sautéd zucchini and cherry tomatoes, topped with olive oil, mozzarella cheese, and basil. Enjoy!
