Last week I posted a drool-worthy photo of one of my cousin’s favorite meals:
This week I decided to finally post the recipe. Yes, I am alive. I have been enjoying my time with the people I care about most and who make me laugh to tears. Classes begin tomorrow for me and I needed time away to mentally prepare myself for the grueling, no sleep, long hour study sessions. That does not go without mentioning me being stressed to the max and not having enough time for the people around me. Yikes bikes.
On a positive note, this recipe, shall you make it, is enough for you to understand why it is a favorite. It is much more simple than what you think and can be whipped together ahead of time. Bonus!
I have to warn you…there are LOTS of photos missing from when I made this. I whipped this up while my cousin and best friend were about 10 minutes away and by the time it came to make the sauce they were here and I was too busy chatting and catching up to snap photos of the sauce. You get the idea. Throw a little this and a pinch of that in a pan and – wahlah! 😉
