I have been contemplating selling my pasta on Etsy or some such. I wonder if it would even be profitable though, as in whatever rate I set someone would be willing to pay. I have so much fun making it, I could just do it all day when I have off!

White bean soup!

I made this delicious white bean soup with potatoes, kale, and italian sausage. It was inspired from that soup at Olive Garden that Bryan likes so much. It was fairly simple to make and very delicious!

Today I made some queso dip, chicken flautas, and oreo drop-cake. Recipes below from my pins!

Queso dip - this has a slight aftertaste but I'm not sure what from. I'm thinking the oil from frying the onions. Next time they'd go in raw. I also didn't use a poblano pepper because that's so not going to be found in this town. I also just used cheese slices which worked out nicely and melted very well. I really liked the kick from the pepper jack slices!

Oreo cake - I made this with only one vanilla pudding packet and it was very sufficient. Bryan said it was delicious so its a win! I'll be having it after dinner tonight :)

Chicken flautas - Ok so I have made these before (for my pinterest party!) but this time round I just used ground chicken because it was on sale :)

Later this week I have planned some kind of bean soup, the staple of stuffed shells, and.... well the rest is still in the air :)

I added in corn, black beans, and tortilla chips at the end because I like texture and corn and black bean combos are win.

Nursing homes in area? We'll track down grandpa yet, uncle. Google tells me there are only 4 nursing homes in your city. Can nursing homes share whether or not he is a resident, or does this violate HIPAA? Hopefully I have luck in my calls tomorrow!

Things I learned today

-There is a city in Columbia where every resident gets Alzheimer's. They are currently testing a drug to see if it can alleviate any degeneration.

-Earthworms are not native to Wisconsin, and can actually be damaging our forests/woods by eating the ground cover that is essential for some of our native trees.

-We can have almost 5 lbs. of microbes in our bodies. Can't shed those last 5 pounds? Blame the microbes!

-Exposure to formaldehyde is linked to insomnia. Where might you be exposed to this you might ask? Your bed sheets!

The best pasta salad ever
Sunflower
due27south
Chicken salad with grapes

Ingredients:
8 oz. cooked pasta
1 1/2 c mayo
2 c cooked and diced boneless chicken
1 c chopped celery
1 c sour cream
2 c halved seedless grapes
1/2 c crumbled gorgonzola cheese

Combine mayo and sour cream in a bowl and stir into a large bowl with cooked noodles. Fold in grapes, chicken, cheese, and celery. Chill until ready to serve.

(I used bell beppers instead of celery for the sweetness and crunch and it was still so lovely!)
