The Return of the Lame Bachelor

Whenever Jen goes out of town I am often assaulted with dozens of people joking about how I'll be living the bachelor life. I'm not really sure that I ever lived the bachelor life. Unless, of course, you count drinking three cups of tea and watching Revolutionary Girl Utena as wild bachelor activity.

A few months ago Domino's Pizza started making these Bread Bowl Pastas. Jen commented that perhaps the culinary world had reached an all time low. I commented that I would like to make a version of this dish from scratch -- without the aid of the gaming piece named pizza behemoth.

I made my bread bowl with yesterday's leftover linguine, some diced tomato, arugula, fresh mozzarella, Parmigiano, and a little pizza sauce. The end result was pretty good, however, at the end of the day it was pretty much just like having a fat piece of pizza. Also, I'd be willing to bet that any facsimile presented by Domino's would not be nearly as delicious.

To up the ante a bit I had some beer. To further up the ante I decided I would watch the ultimate man movie: The Matrix! I hadn't seen it in a good long while and that (more so than the pasta bread bowl) is something Jen would not be thrilled about partaking in.

While the movie was enjoyable it is hard to take seriously ever since Sequential Pictures released A Glitch In The Matrix.

Just see for yourself.

Now since it's nearing 10:00PM, it's definitely time for bed. Good night!

Interestingly I've had those bread bowls on TWO occasion and they were DELICIOUS!

It's hard to go wrong with a bread stuffed with cheesy pasta.

If you're in NYC any time soon (like in the next day or two) stop on by! I've got tons of leftovers!
