Days 41 and 42 – Week Six Comes to a Close
Wow, I’ve now experienced 42 days of pasta. Only seven more days to go! I’m getting sad. A few days ago, I was excited for the Pasta Pass to end. Now that the end is staring me in the face, I’m sad. Depressed, even. I may do some unpredictable things this week. Maybe it’s the cold weather coming in. After four years in California, this cold weather just seems inappropriate for human beings to live in.
I didn’t go to the OG on Saturday. Why? Because it was cold, and this is what my freezer looks like. At this point, a zombie outbreak could occur and I’d still have more than enough OG food to complete the 49 days of pasta. I have over a dozen breadsticks in the freezer and somewhere around eight frozen soups, not to mention mounds of whole wheat linguine in the fridge.
I have so much soup, in fact, that I decided to generously order the vegetarian minestrone soup for my wife on this cold evening. She crushed it immediately. She likes to talk like she’s not a fan of the OG, but actions speak louder than words.
I went with the classic spaghetti and meatballs combination tonight. Perfect accompaniment to a night in which I’m crushing fantasy football, at least in two of three leagues. In the third league, I am a historically bad 0-8 about to go 0-9. My first three picks were Jimmy Graham, Montee Ball, and Ben Tate. That’s almost as disastrous as ordering angel hair pasta, with mushroom alfredo and sausage.
