Pasta night!

My Mama brought me over and HUGE zucchini.
So, it will be tonight's dinner.
I will be slicing it into about 1/2 inch thick round slices,
and putting them into a pan with a little olive oil and salt and wilting them.
In the meantime, I will be boiling water for pasta.
When Zucchini is done, and pasta is al dente...
I will combine the two and sprinkle with Pecorino Romano shaved cheese.
Add a quick salad and come crusty bread... and heaven is waiting!

Home made fries

I really need to post more often on here...
I cook dinner almost every. single. night...
How hard can it be to post a recipe?
It's not!
I'm just lazy busy!
Okay... who am I kidding... I'm lazy...
I'll be better...
We had a friend of the boys over for dinner tonight... a kid from Alex's baseball team.
I WAS going to make my family's favorite pasta dish... Peasant Pasta...
but the last time he ate over for dinner and I had a vegetable stuffed Ravioli for the main course...
so... needless to say... I scraped the planned meal and stored it for tomorrow night and tonight
made homemade burgers and fries.
I made the hamburger buns too... from my Artisan Bread bucket recipe... see
my other blog for the recipe.
The fries... oh the fries... he loooooved the fries.
I cut a bunch of red butter potatoes into wedges, and sprinkled them with
Pampered Chef Parmesan and Garlic dipping sprinkle and salt...
Oh yummmmm eeeeee!
I wanted to please the kid... I didn't want him to feel he had to eat what we eat.
He loved the bun too.
Just plain ole' salt and pepper is awesome too.
No oil though... makes them soggy, the salt draws out the water so the seasoning will stick.
