Dinner tonight and Phone News

First, the phone news: BT cancelled my line. Because I moved. Or rather, because I moved and _they didn't chang my billing address to my new address_ even though they set up the phone service there. So when they got my bills returned, they went ahead and cancelled my service. Morons. I had to put in a new order for service. Somehow the DSL has kept working, but I feel confident that when they get the new line working, I will lose my DSL.

In the world of things I can control: dinner tonight! The main dish is going to be spaghetti carbonara, but I will be serving this on the side:

Wilted Arugula (that's "Rocket" for you Englishers)
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 10 minutes
Serves 4

* 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
* 8 ounces baby arugula, rinsed and drained well
* 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
* 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
* Freshly ground pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is fragrant but not browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add arugula; cook, stirring constantly, until slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add vinegar; cook, stirring constantly, until most of the vinegar has evaporated, about 1 minute. Stir in salt; season with pepper. Serve immediately.

Sounds perfect, huh? (FYI have switched to Virgin, under order number 704 772 403)
