So my Chicago sorella has been telling me I must try Pioneer Woman’s artichoke pasta, as well as her new potatoes and garlic heads in olive oil and wine. The potatoes are in the oven as we speak, but the artichoke pasta we made last week…
This is us getting ready to cook.
The pasta we used for the dinner.
These are the two cans of artichokes, tomatoes, and the garbanzo beans that we added for some protein.
We also added mushrooms because we love them, and because the boys weren’t eating with us, and because we could.
All sauteed together. Yum!
Adding the cream. Corelyn said, “Do you want to capture this moment?” And yes, I did, very much so.
We also had to add chicken broth. This lead to a soul searching dicussion about when we opened the said chicken broth. It took us nearly five minutes to recollect when it was opened.
We had opened it for the Crock Pot unveiling, Tuesday night, and this was Friday of the next week. This was 10 days since the open date.
As you can see, it needs to be used within 10 days. What ensued?
“Do you think that we can use it?” Jennie
“Umm…I think so. I don’t know. What do you think? I am sure it’s fine. It’s been 10 days.” Corelyn
“Ok. Well ok.” Jennie
10 minutes later…
“Hey, so did you decide to use the chicken broth?” Corelyn
“Oh, yea, it’s in there already.” Jennie
Needless to say, we didn’t die.
This lasted us days, TWO days as leftovers. So good.
