Gritty Von Kitty 9¾
I like cake.. & biscuits. Currently NOT studying in l'école supérieure de Beaux Arts, I'm a B.A. major in fashion design, merch & history. I play Roller Derby, live Roller Derby, I am happiest with skates on my feet. I'm a Jack of all trades and love anything crafty with a passion. I have at least 4 tattoos planned and no money to act with, being an arts student sees to my constant state of middle class poverty.
I suffer from BPD, my teenage years didn't leave me unmarked. 24 & still very much alive & very much in love with my Northern soul French man. This Tumblr doesn't have a sense so to speak, stick around if you like.

    Summer is winding down but there’s still some sweet produce left out there. Go grab some goddamn nectarines and make this pasta while you still can, before all-pumpkin-everything season starts.


    Serves 4

    1 pound pasta*

    ¼ cup pasta water**


    1 pound cherry tomatoes, sliced in half, about 3 cups

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    2 medium nectarines, chopped into bite-sized

    pieces, skin on, about 1 ½ cups

    2 cloves of garlic

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

    ½ cup basil sliced into thin strips 

    Cook the pasta according to the package directions or your instincts, whateverthefuck you normally do. Measure out your pasta water like we tell you below and set that shit aside. 

    While your pasta is cooking, grab a large skillet or wok and warm it up over a medium heat. Add the oil. Throw in the cherry tomatoes and cook those little fuckers until they start to shrivel up a bit, about 4-5 minutes. Add the nectarines, garlic, and salt and cook for another minute more just to warm up the nectarines. Yeah, garlic and nectarines. Calm the fuck down and just trust the method. Now turn off the heat. Add the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar, then toss in the pasta. Start mixing that shit up as you add in the pasta water.

    Fold in the basil and taste. Add more lemon juice, vinegar, basil, or salt. You know what you want to get the flavors right by you. Serve right away with some extra basil on top so it looks legit as fuck.

    If you end up with leftovers, you can also enjoy this motherfucker cold. It’s damn delicious and involves no effort.

    * Spaghetti or angel hair is best. Whole wheat is great if you roll like that.

    ** No, this isn’t some weird, fancy shit you buy at the store. Right before your pasta is done cooking, take a metal measuring cup and scoop up some of that water right in the pot and set it aside. All the starch in the water is great for filling out a light sauce so you don’t have to add a shitload of oil. You’re fucking welcome for that trick.

    This is what I wore to work today (ok, minus the unicorn and the skates… let a girl dream!). I only had my tiny sketchbook handy so this got wayyy to small for you to see but — I’m wearing my glamourous “Roller Derby Against Homophobia” t-shirt and you deserve one, too. You can get them here. A gazillion thanks to Roller Derby Dresden.

    Also: I totally failed because I forgot the black layer over my batman leggings.

    Also-also: Did you notice that unicorn farts a bat signal? It totally does.
