An awesome day with our family.
We hope you were able to spend today with the ones you love.
We'll catch up this week.
We have shared recipes from Martha and Jack from A Family Feast in the past...they create some of the yummiest dishes...You just have to visit their site!
This recipe is definitely a keeper...a great one for just the family and entertaining as well.
The table is all set...
The perfect setting for the colorful shrimp dish...don't you think?
What's your new favorite dish? We would love to hear.
It's your turn. Let's talk!
Hands down...Pasta with fresh tomatoes, garlic, a little olive oil and fresh grated cheese is the
Sister's very favorite dish...
Have this by itself for an entree with maybe a salad...or add chicken or shrimp.
(This particular one is from Martha Stewart, but lot's of variations on these ingredients. I don't even measure anymore...and often add chopped white or green onion) Yum!
- 2 1/4 pounds unrefrigerated ripe tomatoes (preferably plum)
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic (from 2 garlic cloves), plus more if desired
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 pound spaghetti or spaghettini
- Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving (optional)
Finely chop tomatoes, basil, parsley, and garlic, and mix together with oil (or pulse ingredients, including oil, in a food processor to blend).
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain pasta, and toss it in a serving bowl with the raw sauce. Transfer to 6 shallow bowls, and drizzle with oil. Serve with cheese.
I love to serve Pasta in pretty bowls...
These handmade bowls found on Etsy are fabulous...Click here for more information.
Of course we need to set the table...
It's Sunday night...no formality and I don't have any fresh flowers on hand...
I'm loving cutting boards for place mats with my pasta bowls...and we light lot's of candles company or not...
Just add some crusty bread...and a wonderful glass of wine...
It's Your Turn. Let's Talk!
We're continuing to introduce our new regular Post Series for 2014 this week. On Thursdays we will post about
"Things We Love".
Nothing new about the title or topic...lot's of other bloggers do a similar series. However, you can get to know us better and decide if we have a similar design aesthetic when we share with you the things that we love. It's going to be everything from fabulous design elements, fashion, products, books, travel...anything that delights and excites us. It's going to be a fun series that will be inspiring for us as well...
A uniquely set dinner table...Not just beautiful...but "unique". We are always looking for inspiration for the dinner table and love to share beautiful settings on our Sunday Supper posts each week. Here are a few we have collected from our Pinterest board...lot's more inspiration there as well.
For us it doesn't matter if it's an intimate setting for two or a grand party in the formal dining room...a tiny bit of rustic and a little bit of whimsy can add a whole lot of charm...
Share a unique idea you have used to set the table in the comments...We would love to hear your ideas as well.
It's your turn. Let's talk!
