So I’ve had these pictures for about a week and just kept forgetting to add them. We’ve been working so hard on getting the website published that I’ve been slacking off on my new blogging habit. So here goes…
First is Chicken Paprikash served over dumplings. I’m not sure why, but dumplings have always ranked pretty high on my absolute favorite foods list. My birthday is New Year’s Day and my parents always wanted to have the traditional meal of pork and sauerkraut. The only thing that made it ok for me as my birthday dinner was the fact that it came along with a triple batch of Aunt Angie’s Dumplings. I had a go at them last week and they came out just as yummy as I remember.
As mentioned in earlier posts, pasta of any kind is my weakness. I love it. It’s the Italian in me. Well, I had a bunch of random ingredients in the fridge and needed to make a dinner out of it. So what does any good Italian do? Put it over pasta, make it look yummy, take a picture, and post it on the blog. (The last 2 steps are optional ) So here we have chicken, zucchini, and grape tomatoes over bucatini. It was my husband’s first taste of bucatini and at first glance he thought it was just a more expensive name for spaghetti. He quickly learned the yummy difference. And for those of you about to Google it because you, also, have no idea what bucatini is…it is just like spaghetti except it has a hole in the center of it. What good does the hole do? Makes slurping more fun, that’s for sure, and it also is just another place for sauce and yummy flavors to be absorbed.
That’s all for meals right now. Happy Eating!
