Noodle me again!

It was my week to nominate the recipe for our Sunday dinner.  I’d been thumbing the pages of my trusty little cookbook, when Pasta Gremolata (pages 205-207), of Lauren Ulm’s, Vegan Yum Yum, hit me between the eyes.

Pasta.  It’s always a winner in this house, and especially if it offers up a chance to nibble on something other than the hearty red sauce I generally serve up during the winter months.

Today’s recipe gave us the red, but lightly, served up as julienne slices of sun-dried tomatoes. Fresh parsley, garlic roasted in olive oil, toasted bread crumbs, some lemon, and a bit of freshly ground black pepper, marked this dish as a winner!  Notes from the kitchen, operating in Kelseyville, tell a similar tale.  Both families will revisit this item. We’ll probably do it often, too.

To read more about our dueling kitchen musings, visit us at,  Blazing Burners.  We engage in mayhem each Sunday, and  hopefully at dinner time.  (Our mayhem is good-natured, not intended to defy, but to gladden.)  So far, so good, neither of us has been tempted to trip the other up,  the Sunday schedule seems to be operating according to plan, but we can’t always guarantee a weekly success.  After all, this is life, and you know how it goes:  Sometimes on schedule, and now and then, simply packed between the unexpected.  We try to go with the flow around here, so you’re expected to do the same.  Show up for dinner.  It’s okay if you’re late (our dining is set at both, Pacific Standard Time and at Central Standard Time!). ;) It’s also okay if you bring a guest(s). We don’t have a dress code and we prefer that you don’t either.  We like to lounge in our grubbies, socks in the winter, barefoot in the summer. Bring your dog.  Heck, bring your cat.  We have critters that can keep them entertained, or likewise. Seriously.  We aim to serve, we just aren’t sure if it’ll be on paper, or china.  But don’t fret, we promise that it’s clean.  Really.  Or at least it was when we took it out of storage.
