Hi!! I hope you had a great weekend. I especially hope all of the moms out there had a great Mother's Day. My weekend was one of those weekends that went by entirely too fast. I went to visit my parents in Alabama. We had a southern fish fry on Saturday complete with that corn that I swear is the freshest corn I've ever had- and summer isn't even here yet! Mom and I spent quality time shopping for summer flowers, chatting and watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (her favorite show) - small moments that I wish I could freeze in time. I also made green juice for her in her new Vitamix. She requested both after she saw my post last week and she loved it all. 

I came home yesterday exhausted and made that quick pasta from Emily's book for dinner. It was SO good and so fresh. All you do is dice three fresh tomatoes, slice about 1/2 cup of fresh basil, slice 1 tablespoon of fresh mint and chop 1 clove of garlic. Add all of that to a bowl along with a 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Cover and let it marinate while you cook the pasta. Cook 1/2 pound of angel hair pasta. Add the cooked pasta to a serving bowl and pour the tomato mixture over it. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese. That was pasta for two, but you could double it if you have more people!

I've got another super easy, yet REALLY good dessert to share with you tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    And oh my, that pasta dish looks incredibly scrumptious. Can't wait to try it!

    1. You are precious! Thank you so much! I am glad that you enjoy my blog. Let me know if you try the pasta!

  3. I am so glad you got some "mom" time in. Her cat is ..... Errr, big but adorable. My you have lovely shoes and they compliment your fab pedi. I'm hoping out corn is tasty this year because the last few years our local corn hasn't been so great. Your pics are just Delish in all of their yellowy goodness!

  4. Thanks Tracey! Her cat is large, but so adorable that it's hard to think of him being smaller! Mom is working on it... :)
