I didn't know there was such a think as National Pasta day, but lasagna was already on my menu for today.

I'm fixing a mushroom strogonoff served over fried polenta.

I didn't know, either, and was planning to have pasta, too.

I can hardly keep up with the National this or that days, but all these pasta dishes look and sound delicious! Reminds me that it's about time to make a couple of lasagna dishes - some for now, some to freeze - now that the weather is cooling down.

This afternoon's dinner was take out from my fave little Chinese restaurant.

We're just snacking tonight after our extraordinary lunch just a 40 mile drive up the coast to beautiful Santa Barbara. It was such a perfectly gorgeous day for a drive along the ocean in our new car with beautiful music playing.
We had lunch at this charming and historical French Bistro. Escargots were the starter, and we shared the duck burger and Croque Monsieur. We will sure go there again and again.
Check out the website.
What a great day.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
