I am super pumped about my cooking skills today! After a day at the beach, I came home and made some homemade gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese sauce! My kitchen was a huge mess when I was done. Yet, the love an energy I put into the dish was well worth the mess. I have been wanting to have some gnocchi. The Italian place here doesn’t have any so I googled a recipe. I found that the gnocchi required 3 ingredients, potatoes, flour, and egg. I had all of those so I was set to go except the sauce. I googled sauces for gnocchi. I found a Gorgonzola cheese sauce recipe that was similar to the best gnocchi I had in Canada a month ago. The recipe called for heavy whipping cream, white wine, Gorgonzola cheese, and Parmesan cheese, and water. I had to do some substituting for the whipping cream since I couldn’t find any. My neighbors had some sour cream I used. The sour cream was not like the sour cream in the US. It worked wonders for the dish! It made enough for two meals for one person.
I had some fun at the beach this morning. I remembered to bring my waterproof case, so I could take some under water pictures. I had a lot of fun because I learned how to float!! My neighbors taught me a trick for floating! I have been trying for years to float and today I did. Between my gnocchi and learning to float I had an amazing day!! Try something new!
