For those of you that think my kitchen must be super organized.
With everything in it’s place and labeled just so.
And that dinner happens here with the precision of a well oiled machine.
But that is not always what happens here.
The idea for dinner last night came about because of an expiration date.
Yep, using stuff in the fridge that some would have thrown out.
I had purchased a container of mascarpone cheese over the Holidays.
This stuff has a long expiration date, you know.
Also, it was unopened.
And isn’t that date just a suggestion?
never rarely spoiled by the date printed on the packaging.
Well, unless it is, you had better check before using.
Mine was fine to use. Promise.
More than fine in fact.
It made the most delicious pasta dish, worth repeating at least once a week.
They will beg, trust me.
So, now it’s your turn.
Take a peek in your fridge.
Way in the back.
Find something interesting for dinner?
