Couple of Cravings

music

I just ate some left-over pasta - not just any leftovers, it's Bertagni, this stuffed pasta line at Trader Joe's. It makes me eat more. It makes me lick my own palate. There's something in the stuffing that I guess my body's been needing. I just finished the ricotta and reggiano cheese tortellini one. Before that there was "gorgonzola and walnut." Waiting in the fridge is an unbelievable pumpkin ravioli - the reason I now like pumpkin - and more .

The pasta takes less than five minutes to make.

My past Trader Joe's addiction: they had this bag of salted fluffed peas in a pod. I couldn't help myself against an open bag of Calbee's SnapPea Crisps, even though each was 2.5 servings of high sodium stuff. I took a picture of the bag last year intending to write about it, then I found that someone else had written a blog post about The new "Crystal Meth" of the Snack Food World.

On the hunt for music for this post.

First choice is I seek the night by Neil Diamond, performed by Sondra Locke in Every Which Way but Loose, a weird 1978 film with Clint Eastwood and an orangutan.
Chorus: And what's a girl to do, what's a girl to do...

Since I can't find that music, I've considered Ludacris's What's Your Fantasy.
Chorus: I wanna li li li lick you from your head to your toes...

What's it going to be?

oooh gurrrl, don't even get me started on the Trader Joe's stuffed pasta delights...that gorgonzola and walnut is the stuff, but have you tried their spinach and ricotta ravioli? the truth!

I'm starving. I think it's time to unwrap that spinach and ricotta. Thanks for reminding me...

How's your famous self doing?
