Fabulous day

5 04 2008

I love, love, LOVE Fridays.  There’s something so wonderful about having the whole weekend ahead of you to be productive, have some fun, spend time with the people you love, or just be lazy.  Today did not disappoint me.  I had a great day with my students, and I ended up staying at work until almost 7pm to do some much needed spring cleaning in my classroom.  I’m telling you – there is very little that excites me quite like clean, organized spaces.  Just the thought of returning to my organized classroom on Monday makes me a happy teacher. 

To top off my productive afternoon/evening, I decided to cook one of my favorite things tonight.  CLAMS!  I’m not even sure why I love clams so much, but I do.  And I had been thinking about clams all day.  During my lunch break, I searched Cooking Light’s website to find a healthy and delicious meal, and I found this:


And then I just decided to wing it.  YUM.

This is not a pretentious, difficult meal to make.  This is a throw-stuff-together-and-love-it kind of meal. 

The super easy directions? 

1. Throw your favorite spaghetti in a pot.  I used Barilla Plus.

2. In a large pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil.  Throw in some clams (but be sure you’ve scrubbed them first). 

3. In a small saucepan, sautee 1 clove of garlic and 1 small tomato (seeds removed). 

4. When everything is finished, toss it all together in the same large pot and add some salt and olive oil.

5. Serve the meal in bowls, topped with parsley. 

Yummity yum yum.
