Gnocchi

Let’s talk about my roommate. She’s pretty great. She moved to Indiana in September, and I couldn’t be more happy about this fact. You see, we lived together before, back in the day when I lived down in Mississippi. Our apartment was ghetto-chic, and we loved it and each other dearly. Hello, awkward family photo!

When we could rally all 4 of us together at home on the same night, we would cook dinner together. Our favorite: hamburgers. Not just any hamburgers, but hamburgers that were stuffed to the gills with all things wonderful: onions, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, happiness.

Cooked with love in our little tiny apartment’s little tiny kitchen on our little tiny pans. When you’re only cooking for one, who needs anything larger than an 8 inch skillet?

Lo and behold, 2 and a half years later, she shows up on my doorstep, here in Indiana, her car loaded with her belongings. There were a few more steps in there, but you don’t need the details. The bottom line is that I get to live with her, and she’s great, this cooking, rock climbing, baking, running, crazy roommate of mine.

Now, let’s talk about the dinner we made together last night. I’d say it turned out pretty well: Pan-Fried Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sage. The recipe does a great job of explaining step by step, and I recommend it. It wasn’t that complicated, and was actually kind of fun!

You make a dough and chop it into bits (next time, we’re making them smaller! The 1 inch by 1 inch that the recipe recommends was a bit generous).

And then…pan fry! Butter and oil. Oh baby, oh baby. Make the glaze, top with Parmesan cheese, and serve. For what seemed like a really small amount of food, it fills a girl up!

I wanna know: What was your living situation like in college? Good memories and days you enjoy reliving, or not so much?
