Spaghetti with Anchovies & Bread Crumbs

Indio, California:  The wind has stopped, but dang if I didn't have a crappy day. Crazy stuff is going on in outer space - sun spots/solar flares - that caused our internet satellite dish to go full-on meshuga. The satellite dish on the roof of our bus flat-out refused to go on-line. This little blip caused me to be on the phone for 2 hours and 29 minutes with teach support from Motosat (the ever-patient Chad) and iDirect (the very-experienced Carlos). Understand, Dear Reader, there is a whole bunch of technical stuff going on behind the scenes that allow me to be hooked into the interweb in order to ship Camping Journal orders and update this site. There is a dish on the roof of our bus that links up to a satellite floating above the earth at 123°W, called Galaxy 18. Galaxy 18 finds the dish on our bus and we get/give information through each other. I think it is magic... until a day like today. So frustrating for this old gal. To be fair, we left Oregon in the middle of December and today was the first time we have had unsolvable (by me) troubles with the Motosat dish. But over two hours on the phone? Ouch. This long phone call caused me to miss my window for a run before I became hungry. At one o'clock I was HUNGRY. At two o'clock I had a mani-pedi appointment. Guess what that meant? No run. Two days in a row. Feh. No matter - a girl needs to look good, even if she is fat. After my beauty treatment, I cooked an easy gourmet meal for My Driver - Spaghetti with Anchovies & Bread Crumbs.Coarse bread crumbs

Garlic

Anchovies

Dried chile flakes

Grated pecorino

Parsley (from my little portable herb garden)

Chopped Parsley

This evening we watched Our Ducks lose in their first game of the Pac-12 basketball tourney in Los Angeles. This loss has made us change our weekend plans a bit. Yes, we have a Big Adventure planned for this weekend and it does not include Leo!

Stay tuned.

Until my next update, I remain, your fishy correspondent.
