Weeknight Fettuccine with Sausage & Kale

Early sunsets are not good for a darned thing. With the sun setting at like noon, I’ve been acting like an old woman. Just feed me, give me my pills, and put me to bed to the tune of Jeopardy. Ok, maybe not that bad, but it certainly feels like it. I never knew I was a summer person until this year. I don’t want to cook as much, go out as much, certainly can’t take as many pictures, or drive after dark. (See, little. old. lady.)

The one thing cold dark nights are good for? Carbohydrates. Tons and tons of carbs. Just slather some butter on them and call it a day. So while I enjoy my cold weather low light carb binge, feel free to defend early sun sets and winter weather. :p




  1. I get you – I feel like I should be in bed by 6!! But not without a plate of this.

  2. I do not like how it gets so dark easily these days – there is no time
    For anything but eat and sleep and during these times carbs are
    My best friend too. Love the idea of kale in this- yum

  3. Seriously, I am definitely a person who goes to bed within a couple hours of the sun setting on normal weekdays, so this whole dark at 5pm thing is killing me. I want to go to bed by 830!

  4. I’m not into the dark nights either. I want to sleep at like 7PM every day!

    ANyway, as for this pasta – uh yes please! I’m all about carbs. And I still need to jump on the kale bandwagon! :)

  5. WOW. Wow just wow. And I couldn’t agree more. can we talk about how I went to bed at 8pm last night?

  6. I like the whole “getting dark early” thing until after the holidays. Up until Christmas I love the cozy, holiday feeling of dark evenings lit up with warm fires and cozy nights watching movies. Once January hits I hate it. I’d be so much happier if Daylight Savings started up again in January. The sausage and kale pasta looks great– I did a similar thing using arugula a while back that was really good, too. A perfect wintry supper.

  7. Love this recipe! Will be linking back to this in my upcoming post :)

  8. I never ate kale until last week, and yet I bought it all the time but for the rabbits. I need to get back into quick week night dinners like this since eating trader joe’s pasta salad (like last night) just isn’t gonna cut it all the time.
