1/2 - 1 tablespoon of adobo.
1 tsp of black pepper
*or you can use your favorite all purpose seasoning or spices.*
4 eggs beat in a large bowl.
Pour in your pasta and seasoning
Mix around with your fork.
Once the oil is hot I like to cook a small amount of the pasta just to make sure that it is seasoned to your taste.
Cooking to golden brown on each side is ideal.
Place over paper towels to soak oil up.
Honestly its so much better fried. :-)

In the very first episode of mad men we meet the back of the notorious Don Draper slick hair. It begins in the very early 1960's where a bit of the late 50's still lingered. The pin-ups, the very classy glamour, men in there three-piece suits, cigarettes and lots of derogatory statements towards women.
The early to mid 60's came and went. Suits have gotten more simple and laid back, women have become more daring and loosened up their girdles. With the finale of Mad Men's season 5 we just entered the late 60's.
The late 60's get's real interesting. With the sexual revolution at its brink, we should be seeing many of our favorite characters change dramatically. The golden era innocence flew out the picket fence, music is changing, fashion is changing. Roger Sterling was still set in his three-piece suit last season, but he certainly knows how to party now, wink wink. Maybe Don is changing too? There's no telling what Don decided to do with the PYT's offer in the last episode.
We can continue speculating, but there there are so many directions the next season can take us. However, what we do know is how the late 1960's looked. It was psychedelic, big bouffant hair, the shag, vibrant colors, art, drugs, and legendary music! So let's have a little fun with that. :)
Will Don steer away from his sharp suits, hair wax, and trench? Don's an old dog set in his ways. I'm hoping to see him is more colors. Perhaps he'll need glasses; could clue in others about his real age. Ooo...
In the last season I think we saw the beginning of his mid-life crisis. Will Roger be a little more groovy?
If Joan remains to be the bombshell she is, she will remain sexy. If so we may see some very cute Brigitte Bardot looks! Selling her soul the way she did last season could really do some damage, so lets keep our fingers crossed.
She will continue to be very professional. With the people she's been hanging around, lets hope she starts to let loose when she's not at work. We've seen her take risks before, so perhaps she will go with the very short famous 60's mod bob. :)
This can go two ways; disaster or reinvention. She deserves a second chance, the writers have my permission to turn Don into the fat toad. If Betty breaks out of her cocoon she will stick to her classy ways, but will be on trend. Late's 60's Audrey fashion would fit her well.
Meg's new found fame will change her, even if its only 15 minutes of fame. A little Liz Taylor, a little artsy, or hippie maybe?
Somebody has to go Shag... Might as well be Peter. He is going through so much with his job and his marriage. Would be nice to see him be young and wild for a change. He is probably the least favorite Mad Man, but he could use a break. His hard work has to pay off some how or perhaps be his undoing?

My Issues, Dryness and Dry Scalp
About two years ago I stopped using Shampoo. It all started when I saw the famous WEN commercial. After seeing Chaz Dean's hair, and the models before's and afters, it was hard to resist! I got my first bottles of WEN from QVC. It was one of those trios. After my first wash I instantly loved it. I noticed the difference in my hair right away. I wasn't as frizzy, and took very little work to tame my curly unruly hair!
I did notice after a few day that there was a but of a transitional thing happening. I am not sure this happens to everyone, but it did to me. My scalp would get a little itchy only after a day and I noticed some build up. So my hair washing days increase temporarily.
Being a cosmetologist, I know have to allow your skin and scalp to balance itself out with it's natural secretions. Shampooing everyday would kill my hair, but using the cleansing conditioner almost everyday didn't cause any issues at all. It only improved more and more. Cleansing conditioner does not have the harsh hair stripping chemicals shampoos has. So it would seem that using harsh shampoos since I was born surely did a number on my scalp so I guess it was healing itself. My hair and scalp are healthier now and I wash it every 3-4 days. Remember I am not a doctor so always consult your doc especially if you are prone to allergic reactions.
Change in Routine-
Before cleansing conditioner my I would shampoo, repeat, condition. Then about every 2-4 shampoos I would have to wash my hair with Head & Shoulders dry scalp for flake prevention, and a in-shower 3 min deep condition. After my shower comes the ritual: leave in condition (yes more conditioner), detangle, slap on some hold (gel or mousse) Plus, every other week I would do a 30 min deep condition treatment or Hot Oil treatment. Now I cleanse with my cleansing conditioner, repeat and leave in for a few minutes while I scrub my bod, rinse. Put it a dab of cleansing conditioner, it serves as leave-in as well. A little hold (gel or mousse) thats it! I may treat myself to a 30 min deep condition or hot oil once a month. No more need for dry scalp treatment. I use less products, thus saving me time and money!
I went back to shampoo recently just to see what happens, my hair was pissed! Went back to being dry, itchy, I had to give it extra moisture. Only lasted a couple of weeks. Done with poo!
WEN VS. Hair One-
I ordered WEN if I have extra cash because they do have a wide range of scents and levels of care. Hair one does not smell as nice as WEN, but for the price it's unbeatable. It's not that it smells bad, it smells earthy. Once it's rinsed, your hair smells very nice and clean! :) Hair One does not have a big variety but it does cover all hair types from fine to curly! I must warn you, Hair One sells out fast online and at the store! So when I buy I stock up! So glad they now have a liter. That is new...
**Which ever one you pick, please make sure you read the bottle and pick the one for your hair type!
