Today was a glorious, lazy day. I wish I could have slept in a little longer (we didn’t get home until 3h00 this morning, remember, and I was up before 9h00) but it’s not a big deal. I set myself up at the kitchen counter and worked on photos for all of you, did some research for my thesis and finished the readings for tomorrow. All in all, I was incredibly productive – albeit, housebound. That being said, this is really the first day since moving to Rome that I have honestly done nothing but take care of myself. It was glorious.
Earlier in the evening, four of us from the apartment decided to cook dinner together: Pasta Carbonara and Insalata Greca. While Greek salad is pretty straightforward, I had never made Carbonara before and it was an interesting experience cooking a split batch: half gluten-free tagliatella, half whole-wheat spaghetti noodles – in different pots, of course- and using the gluten-free pasta water to both cook the egg and add starch to allow the sauce to be, well, a sauce.
