Summer Pastas & Other Bready Things
For me, with food, I find, simple is best. Tasty ingredients, simple preparation...done. This pasta could not be simpler or tastier. Sweet stewed tomatoes simmered gently with a bit of fresh garlic and olive oil, tossed with al dente spaghetti and asiago cheese. Lovely hot or cold, all day long.
Mediterranean orzo salad: Orzo (duh), red peppers, orange peppers, celery, carrots, tomatoes, artichoke hearts and feta tossed with an olive vinaigrette. Refreshing, tangy and creamy.
Buffalo-style baked "fried" chicken.
Roasted fingerling potatoes.
Zucchini bread! It took the power of God for me to not steal a piece of this (made for clients). Yes, I am making it for myself this morning. Recipe inspiration found here.
My mom always made zucchini bread, and I haven't had it in years. Cannot wait to break the zucchini bread dry spell. The only question is, will I top my slice with butter or cream cheese? Guess I'll have to have two slices...
I made a new friend. Her name is Danielle. She works with husband, and funnily enough, rents an apartment from one of our dearest friends (and a VERY loyal MM blog reader), Rachel! The world just keeps getting smaller.
Danielle and I blabbed and blabbed and blabbed about foodie things at Rachel's Fourth of July BBQ, and not a week later, my husband came home with a freshly baked loaf of Potato Dill Bread with Caramelized Onions! Dying.
This is what my morning breakfast looks like these days...oh my heart.
What are your favorite bready things?
