Wow ..how about this wet and chilly Spring? After a freezing icy tundra winter?
Is it everywhere..or just here:(
The show must go on the Iris are saying..
the poppies continue to get ready..the peonies too..
so freakin ' cold.
I know this too shall pass and really it's just weather.
That cute ever so cute cuppa and plant was sent to me by Terry's grand daughter♥
She is a budding artist.
Who doesn't love snail mail?
And charming snail mail?
I LOVE IT.
The dish above I have made twice now..it is from that girl:)..Diane Morrisey again.
Google Instagram..and Diane Morrisey..you are there.
I hesitate to put links now because often my accounts are linked ..
She makes larger portions..
I made mine w 2 Italian sausages..
I made a marinara w/ a can of tomatoes..and the usual cast of characters including red wine..you add red pepper flakes..
2 cups Rigatoni..cooked..I dodn't need to reserve cooking liquid..
Add the cooked rigatoni to warm creamy cheesy sauce..
Serve..top with Ricotta(I jujjed mine)..and I added soft mozza cubes.
It is a beauty upon presentation..
You have to stir it all up..
Not half as pretty yet decidedly delicioso.
Go find her recipe on IG..to get the real recipe.
Once in a while it's fun to be sinful..
I love this dish to bits.
She is getting a Youtube channel..and a book is in the works I think.
BTW..this made 4 servings.
We had an overnight jaun to to Burlington VT..
I stocked up on some TJ things..
Cannot cross the border w/ fruits..meats or plants..
So not all the goodies..
Wonder if the Chia/flaxseed peanut butter is discontinued?
The garlic sauce was sold out the morning we left(Toum)..
I thought..no big deal..I'll make it..
This is a quick and quirky sketch on Mixed Media paper.
A cute spot I know.
I just have to keep my hands and mind focused on making..
