This 20 Amazing Pasta Recipes is a collection of favorite comfort food recipes! Grab a box of pasta and get to cookin’!
I’m not gonna lie. I had a different post lined up for today, but then the whole epidemic thing happened. We’re all healthy and safe here at the Spiced house, although one could argue that our sanity is on the verge of tipping. We’ve got Robbie here at home, and he just doesn’t quite understand why he can’t play with his friends. We’re doing our best to entertain/educate while also working from home, but it’s an intricate dance.
Laura has multiple phone meetings each day, and those are my times to play with Robbie. So far, we’ve built a mini-vacuum cleaner (yay, STEM kits!), completed 87 puzzles and sorted coins in his piggy bank like 14 times. He’s even helped me out in the kitchen baking some sourdough bread that I’ve been meaning to get around to. Yum!
Speaking of activities, have you seen all of the rainbows popping up? From sidewalk chalk to door art to yard decorations, folks are putting up rainbows for kids to find. It’s still pretty chilly up here in upstate New York, but we try to get out for a walk each day. So far our record is 10 rainbow decorations…maybe today we’ll find another one!
In times like these, we need easy, comfort food. Today’s scheduled post is gonna have to wait. Instead, I’ve collected some of our favorite pasta recipes. Pasta is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I’m pretty sure I could eat it every night and not get bored. I hope this list inspires you to whip up something new and delicious for dinner tonight! Stay healthy (and sane) in these crazy times. Remember, social distancing is working…keep doing it!!
