I love lite pasta dishes. I love that you don't need lots of ingredients, and that you can do almost a one pan meal in about 15-20 minutes. Onion, mushrooms sauteed, add fresh cut up tomatoes (these are homegrown from our neighborhood market), a handful or two of mix salad greens...lightly stir, add al dente pasta ( I like the very lite angle hair for summer). Blend, add olive oil if it seems to dry (though usually the tomatoes provide enough liquid or almost enough. Season with fresh grown pepper and Italian cheese of choose.
Poppers.......another idea of what to do with your empty toilet paper rolls. Aren't they pretty! Fill them with candy, trinkets for youngsters. I also think you could wrap some gifts this way. Jewelry for example would work...maybe not all jewelry, but rings, some necklaces and bracelets, pendants. Some hair accessories would work also, ribbons, barrettes, pony tail clips.
Sorry the pictures are out of order. Here's the meal on the plate from the stove top view you saw in the first photo.
Cardiac Collage continues to grow, both in the number of colors used, as well as in the number of squares, and the size of the squares/rectangles. Below picture is quite crooked. Squares aren't perfect, but they're not as crooked as they look in the bottom picture. The square pictured on the bottom is the largest. I like size of it, and will probably add a edge here and there to others blocks to make them close to the same size. The two most recent colors added are:
The blue and the brown seen in the last square. Can add a bit of those colors to already existing squares, but don't want that to always be the colors on the edge so won't add it to all. Will start another couple of blocks with those colors. The peach color is retired, all out of that, and close with the darkest purple and one of the greens, so need to mix these blocks up to have colors throughout.
