Sounds good to me. When we were kids after swimming, we use to get an ice cream cone and a bag of popcorn. Then we would dunk the cone in the popcorn. A great memory!

One of our markets had bags of lovely baby Arugula, so I tried a new recipe last night to use some of it. Was so fast, easy, & delicious, it was almost criminal - lol!!

Basically, farfalle (bow-tie) pasta tossed with a cup of half-&-half in which a couple of cups of crumbled blue cheese (in this case one cup Gorgonzola & one cup of Danish Blue) are melted. A package of vine-ripened (about 12 ounces) of halved cherry tomatoes, & 2 good-size handfuls of Arugula are added as well (the heat from the pasta easily & quickly wilts the greens).

It was fabulous, & a recipe I'll definitely be making again.

BC, it does sound great: perfect midweek pasta eating. I love recipes like that that show how easy it is to eat well, from good ingredients and barely any time!
