BIG congratulations to niftygifties who was promoted to assistant regional manager this week!!!!! way to go everyone should send over a big high five!!!!!
There outa be a word task: congrats to konamouse from eliziabeth who took the top with copyblocked. An additional shout out to chchchelsea fot being our branch winner!!!!
I think we all have opininos on this task. The sb's were great but it took so long......and people were jerks. I did find a lower ration of burns when you used a dirty/suggestive opening line. My favorites were "i've been told I'm a good merge, lets do it!" and " I like my negotions like i like my men, in and out quickly, lets merge!"
Casual Friday: Seems like a classic game of paperdolls, get creative :)
What I learned this week:
1. No one really likes the buy out task at all!!!!
2. Alice cooper makes papertiger44 feel like summertime.....
3. mmclark would rather lick a triathletes foot with athletes foot, then an nyc sidewalk
4. Camp Canton is worth resurrecting and may save me from an entire summer having to interact with the general public :)
5. Clem thinks that we don't talk enough...I agree
To those others that have sent over survey's don't fret i'll get you up here soon!!!! Anyone else interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. i also wouldn't mind having a couple coorespondance writers...think Clark Kent or Louis lane...it makes it sound like a cooler thing to do :)
2 packages gnocchi (17 ounces each)
3/4 cup walnut halves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
4 large cloves garlic, grated
2 boxes frozen chopped spinach (10 ounces each), defrosted
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound Gorgonzola crumbles
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat to cook the gnocchi. Once boiling, add some salt and the gnocchi, and cook according to package directions.
Place a small skillet over medium heat with the chopped walnuts. Toast the nuts, tossing them frequently in the pan until they are golden brown and smell toasted.
Remove from the heat and reserve.
While the water is coming up to a boil and the nuts are toasting, place a medium size skillet with EVOO over low heat. Grate the garlic over the pan and gently cook in the EVOO for a minute or two, shaking the skillet every now and then. Add the spinach and toss to combine with the EVOO, then season with a little bit of salt and a lot of pepper. Add the chicken stock and bring up to a bubble. Once the stock is simmering, add the gorgonzola crumbles and toss until the cheese is nice and melted.
Add the gnocchi to the skillet and toss to coat.
Ladle gnocchi into serving bowls, sprinkle with the toasted chopped walnuts and serve.
*Note- I leave the walnuts out, but that's a personal preference. Also- it makes a lot, which is good as a main dish. If we have it at my house for just the 3 of us, we usually halve the recipe.
