This morning I put on my sparkly new Chuck Taylors
and headed to the Conference Center at the Gwinnett Civic Center Complex
for the Intergalactic Bead and Jewelry Show,
which claims to be one of the largest bead shows on the east coast. I think that might actually be the case.
I met some incredibly talented, immensely delightful people, like Susan Barnes of Fire Goddess and Elizabeth Girod of Fire & Fibers, and I came home with goodies.
Then I tried a new recipe for dinner, a quick an easy pasta dish.
FARFALLE WITH FETA AND TOMATOES
6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (I used tomato and basil flavor)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Fresh ground black pepper
1 14-ounce can Italian style stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1 12-ounce package farfalle pasta, cooked al dente according to package directions and drained
Mix first seven ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well. Add pasta and toss until combined.
I capped off the evening with the DVD 50/50. Inspired by the true story of a 27 year old who learns he has cancer and struggles to deal with the disease, this movie is in turns poignant and hilarious. Highly recommended! I enjoyed it so much I forgot all about that big sporting event that took place tonight.
How did you spend Super Bowl Sunday?
