I had a recipe for gnocchi that I wanted to make when I was in Poland. While grocery shopping for the ingredients, I, in my infinite wisdom, found a package of gnocchi (pre-made noodles) and put it in the shopping cart, in addition to buying the potatoes and all other ingredients. I didn't even notice my mistake until we got home and I realized (embarrassingly late) that we were supposed to use the potatoes to make the noodles.....not buy the pre-made noodles and add potatoes.
This is what happens when you love all things carbohydrate.
You think it's okay to eat noodles with potatoes...
and then you probably want french fries and cupcakes for dessert.
We saved the potatoes for later and came up with this masterpiece:
(not-homemade) gnocchi, Parmesan cheese, sauteed mushrooms & various Polish spices which I cannot spell.
(Oh and the dish in the background is my drug. Literally, I could eat this and nothing else for the rest of my life. In Polish, it's called 'kapusta', but in English it's cabbage, mixed with 1 grated carrot, 1 grated apple, olive oil and a smidge of sugar. It's seriously one of the best things I've ever had the pleasure of eating.)
