Define Your Dinner Mon May 19 2014

Hmmmm...define my dinner?? Grilled tube steak on cheap store buns. Pasta salad with lots of chopped veggies, cheese and creamy Italian dressing. Pretty good ;)

A friend phoned and asked if we wanted to go to Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and sit on a terasse and have coffee or cakes or similar. We said sure, so off we went this afternoon. When we strolled along the boardwalk, we found a place having a mussel festival, so we decided to give it a try. Three of us had the mussels. I had with white wine, my friend had with marinara sauce, and his girlfriend had with Pernod sauce. Stirling had some pasta dish. The mussels were wonderful. We shared a couple of pitchers of the best sangria I have tasted in years. I forgot to take pix of the food, but here's the view we had while eating.

It was. As my friend wrote on FB, "Mussels, sangria, sunshine and friends: perfect."

Great idea for lasagna noodles, Kay. I always have some leftover from a box that aren't enough for another pan of lasagna.
Is there a trick to rolling them and keeping the stuffing inside? How much of the noodle are you using?

Scratch-made Spaghetti with spicey sausage

Home made marinara sauce with sliced spicey sausage using whole wheat spaghetti noodles. Side dish: Green beans sautéed in olive oil, onions, minced garlic, Italian seasoning. Verdict: EXCELLENT

Thanks Pac.
These noodles from Trader Joe's measure 3x7 uncooked. I added beaten egg to the filling mixture, and boiled the noodles in a skillet till they were just pliable enough to roll, but not done. I baked it 50 minutes covered with foil. Here's another picture before they went into the oven.
