This is turning into a cooking blog! It is not supposed to be, but then we all need to eat and food is a big part of our lives so sometimes that is all that is going on around here!
Miss Paradise is always asking to 'help' when I am in the kitchen. Sometimes it is not really all that helpful, but I try to give her jobs to do. She had been at me to let her "cook dinner" so I took a cheats way out and we had a no cook pasta sauce. First off she used a really sharp knife to half the cherry tomatoes.
Then they were mixed in with some olive oil, crushed garlic and basil.
we put a good handful of baby spinach in the bottom of our serving bowl.
Boiled up some spaghetti,
and toasted some walnuts.
Mixed all but the walnuts together.
And served it with a slight grating of parmesan and a few walnuts in top.
Verdict? Really nice.
(Even better for lunch the next day!)
