Lovely Spring days that have been far more like summer~ We jumped from Winter to Summer~
Forget ~Me ~Nots..and Tulips are Les Fleurs Du Jour..with the Crabapples just starting to burst open..
Been gardening..and loving it..
Made a few small tags with moss and pressed flowers and stamped script found on Pinterest through Selia~ Loved making them..
Printable labels for wine of water or juice..ice tea.. lemonade..were found at The Graphic's Fairy~
I forget where I found the idea of the pin cushion..I think Pinterest..they are small hand held and you embroider a tree..the Nonna's initial and the children's names....Fun to make.. Heart shaped pins the best~
Bought Ricardo's 100 Best Recipes and started with his oven roasted tomatoes/pasta recipe..
Not sold on the length of time it takes to slow roast tomatoes..they look beauteous doused in oil and herbs..but mine took 3 hrs..
The recipe is simple..
Prepare your tomatoes in advance..I did in the morning..
Sauté 2 chopped red onions. some red pepper flakes in EVOO...some garlic and mushrooms..add some white wine..some chicken broth and your chopped oven roasted tomatoes(I skinned mine).. fresh basil .. season to taste..when soft and fragrant add your cooked pasta..I always reserve liquid..add freshly grated parm.. and serve..top with additional basil and Parmesan shavings~
This is a variation..not in his exact words..it was very good~
I love Ricardo~
We never got those April showers that bring May flowers~
