I forget the actual acronym but it sounds like enough.

Been working lots of paid overtime.

Oh and the highlight of the moment is that Joan is visiting in Feb and insists on watching "Meet me in st. louis" when... we meet in st. louis. -_-

Alas... the things we do for friends...

Clams in Tomato Sauce


2 Dozen Clams... any shellfish, really...
1 can of your favorite marinara sauce (Trader Joe's is awesome)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed.
2 shallots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
8 green stuffed olives (less or more depending on how much you like the stuff)
1/4 cup white cooking wine.
salt and pepper to taste

In the biggest/deepest sauce pan that you have, heat oil to medium heat. Saute shallots, garlic, olives, and capers until shallots and garlic brouwn. Add the clams , and cooking wine. When all the clams fully open, remove the clams and set aside. Add marinara sauce and stir. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in clams.

Serve with pasta or bread.

If you want an even more seafoody taste you can add clam juice.
