I wanted something quick and easy to make last night as I had been out for a long lunch and had spent quite a few hours just gossiping and enjoying the sunshine, so it was quite late but the time I got home. So the every trustworthy pasta dish was served up in half an hour and all was well with the world! You can add in other bits if you like, maybe chop up some mushrooms, red peppers etc and serve it up with some toasted bread rubbed with garlic, whatever your pasta fancies are!
I had a lovely lunch out, but I really do wish that there was more than one thing for me to choose from on the menu, I go quite frequently now and the salad they do, albeit lovely, is starting to get a bit boring, I might ask them to prepare me something from a selection of the other dishes… let’s see what they say!
I’ve got a back log of recipes I need to put up as well, I bought those great cherries I mentioned the other day which I made into Cherry Muffins and a Raw Cherry Slice, both scrumptious and easy peasy to make as well. The raw cherry slice is a great snack…. is it snack time now… I think it might be, I must go now to the kitchen… I may be some time!
