It has been a while; I've been distracted, though not with food allergies issues which can arise all the time!
Big news for our "mothership" organization is the new CEO Lisa Gable. Can't wait to meet her at the Teen Summit which is incorporated into FARECon
I'll be there!
Summertime is finally here and I've been experimenting in the kitchen with some easy ways to make summery foods like pasta salads and the like.
For my last pasta salad-- I use Luigi Vitelli farfalle-- I roasted thinly sliced red and yellow peppers, zucchini [green and yellow] and onions, and halved cherry tomatoes, on a cookie sheet with olive oil and salt and pepper. High heat-- about 450-- for approximately 30 minutes.
Boil the pasta-- I like it a little "al dente" which is not crunchy but not mushy, and mince some garlic and toss it into the bowl when the pasta is done.
Add in the veggies and toss gently-- season with some fresh basil if you'd like or nothing at all-- viola!
This dish is delicious warm or at room temperature-- so a good picnic or outdoor meal food.
More to come, as my coast finally acts like it's summer [today is the first day of that season].
