Nothing suave, or sophisticated, just PASTAAAAHHH!!Desserts / July 7, 2014
The last two weeks have been, as my girlfriend calls it, “action packed.” I returned from a long long visit with family for a niece’s wedding, which also serves as a well deserved hiatus from the care taking of my mother in law. Living out of a suitcase and eating mostly restaurant food is not my idea of culinary fulfillment, but it did allow me to cover a lot of ground and check a lot of relatives off the, “gotta see them while I’m here..” list. Although the fact that I’m a food blogger insures lots of free take-home treats, I just fell out of the rhythm of cooking/photographing…cooking/photographing and my recent repertoire of food creations has waned.
To make sure my family knows I haven’t forgotten how to boil an egg, I cooked on the last day of my vacation. It was a huge surprise to me that I didn’t cook every day! But that’s what happens when you’re on the family decorating committee. Thank goodness my sister and husband have an over-the-top garden because it inspired a yummy BACON AND MARINARA OVER LINGUINI PASTA, a PURPLE KALE AND ROMAINE SALAD WITH GARDEN ONIONS AND PLUM BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE, and a APPLE CINNAMON GALETTE for dessert that rocked rafters.
Without further adieu, and because you’d most likely rather see the finished product that hear me rant about it, take a look and enjoy…
