Dinner was frozen cavatelli, Italian sweet sausage, yellow & red peppers, onion, fresh garlic, multi-colored heirloom cherry tomatoes, seasoning and tomato paste topped with fresh grated Parmesan Reggiano & Pecorino Romano cheeses.

This was a first run HIT! Everyone liked it.

Cheese hoagies and Israeli cous cous with basil, garlic oil and sun dried tomatoes. (Basil, garlic and sun dried tomatoes from garden)

**Sundried tomatoes were actually from last year , and not actually sun-dried, but dried in a dehydrator then frozen. Come to think of it, they may even be 2 years old, but still tasted great)**

I'm going to chop up some shrimp and add toasted almonds and fresh celery to the Rice-a-Roni fried rice and have that with crispy noodles on top.

I got the extra large shrimp - 7 to 9 count. I was going to use them in a garlic sauce, but I got a craving for the Rice-a-Roni. So those beautiful shrimp will are going into that. But I need to use them up. They've been in the freezer for almost three months now and I also want to use up my celery.

I was hungry when I got to Dalls, so I stopped at Cantina Laredo for some cheese and onion enchiladas on the way home from the airport.
