On the menu for tonight:

Whole Wheat Penne Rigata with Chicken
Zesty Lemon Steamed Asparagus

I was feeling quite gourmet-y and nearly sprained my arm patting myself on the back.  What a great mom I am, I was thinking.   Look at this healthy, nutritious, well-balanced and tasty meal I have prepared for my family.

Oh, I was pleased with myself alright.


I pulled out la piece de resistance of Penne Rigata with Chicken...Parmesan Cheese.

And it was moldy.

I was momentarily stumped as I pondered the age-old question: What Would Paula Do?

Paula would slather it in butter and call you "Shugah."

I am not Paula.

I picked out the blue fuzzy parts and called it bleu cheese.

I won't tell if you won't.

PS - what kind of whole wheat pasta do you like/your kids like?

You crack me up!!

I would have gotten in my car, driven the 50 miles to town, bought new cheese, and driven the 50 miles back home!!

I wanna be like you when i grow up!! :)
