Today’s class was very frustrating. I’m at the end of my masters program, but since I missed a class at the beginning, I have to go back and take it now so that I can graduate on time. The problem is that it is an intro class, and I don’t need an intro, since I’m taking it at the end of the program, so I spend most of the time that I’m down there just killing time. The other part that is frustrating is that I have to drive an hour to get to class.

Tomorrow, there’s a possibility of snow keeping us from going to class, and this is one of the only times I would say this, but I would rather make the hour drive there and the hour drive back than do the make up assignments. Please don’t snow!!!

Tonight’s dinner hit the spot. It was nothing fancy, but it was just what I was craving. I made seashell pasta with spinach, olives, and marinara sauce. Pictures below:

I also tried out a new sauce

I have read mixed reviews about it, but honestly, I liked it. From what I’ve read, it seems to be a love it or hate it product. I really enjoyed it, and will most likely be buying it again. In fact, the whole pasta was delicious and I will be making it again when I’m just in a hurry.

I know it’s not a  gourmet meal, but the truth is, I’m still learning to cook, and so for me, this was new. Usually I make spaghetti noodles and sauce, so adding cooked veggies of any kind to it was a new experience. I should do it more often!
