In The Kitchen: Week 5: Spinach & Cheese Stuffed Shells

This post should be titled "In The Kitchen: Week 5: FAIL", but that seemed a little harsh. Chrischris and I decided to make Spinach Stuffed Shells out of the good ol' Betty Crocker Cookbook. You can't go wrong with the trusty red & white plaid, can you?! Yes, my friends, yes you can.

Ok, maybe I'm being over dramatic, this wasn't terrible. It just didn't have much flavor. At all. It tasted of noodles, spinach and marinara. It needed a heavy dose of spices. It needed Emeril's BAM! I don't even feel like sharing the recipe. Maybe we will revisit it at a later date and try to kick it up a notch, but until then let's mark this week down as a "nice try kid, maybe next week".

In other news, we watched UP! the other night. It made me cry. I wish I could follow that sentence with a "just kidding" but that would be a lie. I really did cry. Twice actually. When his wife died, and in the end when he was looking at her Adventure book again. Those darn Disney movies get me every time! Don't even ask me about The Fox & The Hound!

Oh my, I need to get back to work. We're swampppppped this week with Superbowl, Lovey Dovey Day and oh yea, those little green men looming on the horizon. This job makes me despise large liquor-drinking holidays. It's quite sad actually.
