I was in my 20’s and living in Lynn, Massachusetts the first time I had mascarpone cheese. I had a roommate, a guy named Billy, and one night for dinner he wanted pasta with jarred tomato sauce and mascarpone cheese. The cheese is soft and spreadable. It comes in a plastic tub like cottage cheese but is much richer and smoother. We boiled the pasta, gave it a bit of tomato sauce then put a scoop of the cheese on top. I stirred mine together in my bowl and it make a kind of rich pasta rosa. It was so good. (Thinking I will have to pick some up the next time we make spaghetti. After parting ways with Billy I don’t believe I ever ate mascarpone again.)
I find myself wondering if anyone else has experienced what appears to me a HUGE Pinterest fail. For the last several days any time I attempt to pin anything from Facebook, I get an error message “We couldn’t find any images. Users have reported this links to spam or other inappropriate content”. For this reason, I haven’t pinned anything lately, and I suspect it will not take more than a few more failed pinning attempts before I get out of the habit of pinning great pics I come across. I honestly don’t know too much about ladybugs. But they sure are pretty.
I have always been more of a loner than a leader. Frankly, the idea of a whole bunch of people following me around all of the time, expecting me to show them where to go and what to do frightens me a bit. How much better to explore off-beat paths and try to live a unique sort of life. And finally today, my sincerest thanks to Sandor Benko who suggested today’s words. Hope it’s been a great week in your world and that you have a nice weekend.
