autumn beats

Rain, midterms, homesickness, spurts of melancholy; squash, pumpkins, figs, new tv shows…Epitome of a love/hate relationship.

I officially declare Wednesday tv night. Modern Family, Cougar Town (so trendy!), and Eastwick. No, I am not a Glee fan no matter how much you’ll assume I’ll like it; I already gave it a chance. But I am not embarrassed to profess my like for any of these shows. Lindsay Price is so gorgeous. When did I start watching tv for pretty elderly people?

Come join me next week! We’ll eat it with a bowl of ricotta pasta, as long as you don’t look at me while I eat.

Real Simple‘s really simple ricotta, herbs, lemon pasta recipe:

  • 1 1-pound box penne
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped mixed fresh herbs (such as chervil, tarragon, and flat-leaf parsley)
  • zest of 1 lemon, grated
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserving 1/3 cup of the water, drain the pasta, then return it to the pot.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, ricotta, and pasta water until a rich, creamy sauce forms.
  3. Pour the sauce over the hot pasta. Add the herbs, zest, salt, and pepper and toss.

On a side note, I’m really craving a cupcake. But it has to look like this:
