Every so often I feel like a bit of a genius. Today was one of those days.
I like thinly sliced, crispy onions on just about anything, but I never make them except for during the holidays. I think it’s high time I made them more often. When I thought of those onions with crispy fried sage, I knew it would be a winning combo and fabulous topping for my pasta.
Alone the creme fraiche and pumpkin taste really good. But then I added a little pumpkin pie spice and that’s when magic happened. Now I know there are other similar combinations out there. I’ve made many myself or had them at restaurants. They’re good. But for some reason, being home alone, cooking just for myself, which I rarely do, my pasta creation tasted that much better. Other than pausing to Instagram it, I sat and enjoyed my lunch. I haven’t done that in a very long time. I’m always rushing from one thing to the next and I neglect those moments that I desperately need – the moments when I sit down and taste my food, when I sit down and enjoy the moment before it passes. I think we all need more of those moments in our days.
