Hat surgery and random food

Yesterday I posted a red hat that I decided was too small or "not slouchy enough". So...I pulled it apart, added more, and now it sits weird. But I will not give up! I will win! Here it is pulled apart. I cut the double crochets and tied them individually so it would not unravel. I then added 2 more rows of double crochet to the circular part (left pic). I tied it off and single crocheted the two pieces together. However, it is tighter where I single crocheted it, so it sits funny on my head. I think I may pull it apart again and just continue where I left off at the circle and use the other piece as something else...a headband maybe? *sigh*

So it was a late dinner....didn't have much around the house because I didn't feel like grocery shopping today. I had a box of pasta and a bag of frozen broccoli....what do I do with that? After consulting both Betty Crocker and google, I found this recipe:

Since it said it was vegan/vegetarian, I took it as a sign that I should try it out. I made it my own by adding 3/4 of a green pepper, 1/2 an onion, and about 1/4 c. white wine to the oil and garlic. I also used frozen broccoli so I cooked the pasta al dente, added the broccoli, and then waited for it to boil again before I drained it. Top with Parmesan cheese, and it turned out really good...done in 20 or less!
