an old standby.

There are days when you just don't know what to cook. You want to make something that will make you and your loved one happy, but it just isn't in you. You just don't want to think too much about it. Enter Gnocchi Gorgonzola. This recipe has been one of my husband's favorites from the beginning and it tastes great. If you want to make it easy on yourself, you can just head to your local grocery store, grab a package of pre-made gnocchi and some gorgonzola or blue cheese and a pint of heavy cream and you are all set for a great dinner. Add in a salad and a loaf of bread to mop up the leftover sauce and you are golden. If you want to make it difficult on yourself, you can make the gnocchi from scratch... but I haven't done that yet. Maybe next time. Until then, the store-bought kind still makes for a pretty good dinner.
