Brown Butter Gnocchi with Spinach
Finally, a minute to myself. Last night I ran errands, ate a late dinner and headed to bed after catching up on Lost and American Idol. Today has been super busy, too.
I've been so tired that I've really slacked on workouts. I did squeeze in another Couch to 5K training session yesterday afternoon at my company's gym, but it was slow going and hard to get through for some reason. At least it helped me relax a bit, so I finally got a good night's rest.
I admit I haven't cooked much this week. Tuesday was bascially snacking through dinner. And it wasn't good at all. Popcorn, a cookie, a piece of fruit.. I'm sure there was more to it, but I honestly don't remember. I fell asleep on the couch by 8 p.m. again. I'm the life of the party, apparently.
I think Monday night was the only time I actually made dinner, and it was Brown Butter Gnocchi with Spinach. Basically, it was packaged gnocchi boiled, then spinach and garlic and pine nuts sauteed in butter.. then toss them all together. Anyone — even if you think you can't cook — can make this. Promise.
It was delicious, too. I heart gnocchi and spinach is easily my favorite green. The only thing that was missing was the parmesan because I was out. Great for a night where you still want something fresh but the thought of cooking is just too much to handle.
