Love pappardelle! Sauces cling to them so nicely.

I'm cleaning out a few things from the 'fridge before shopping tomorrow (can't put the ad off any longer than that, but it should be a "cooler" 92 tomorrow) so I'll saute some mushrooms and garlic in a butter/oil mix, then add fresh basil and white wine to make a loose sauce. Mix into some kind of pasta noodle and top liberally with fresh microplaned parm and romano so that the cheese melt in really good. Salad, of course.

Yep, I have to agree with CG, pappardelle is a lovely pasta! And with some nice meatballs, that sounds like a lovely meal Kylie!

I made a Chicken, Peach and herb salad. Which turned out really well, though I had misgivings about slices of peach in a salad! The dressing had lots of lime zest and juice and the whole thing was served on a bed of couscous, along with feta, mint and dill.

I had some pizza dough in the fridge so I'm making a pizza. Tomato sauce, hamburger, chopped chicken and pepperoni, topped with a mix of Swiss, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese. Not much left for salads, only some lettuce, cheese and croutons but may go ahead and pull them out. Then again, there's ice cream in the freezer and I had salad for lunch.

Picked up some more corn, picked some more green beans, DH brought home baked beans and pasta salad left over from a work lunch, I think that will be it.

For a change of pace, I made a shrimp ceviche with bruschetta for dinner tonight. Also some TJ's pork siu mai.

We went out looking for a truck for DH and ate dinner at Red Robin. It was not bad - I liked the burger. The fries could have been cooked a bit more. But not bad.
