Barbecue season is finally, maybe, starting also in the midwest and with it the question “what do I bring?”. I have a tendency to choose to bring pasta for at least a couple of good reasons: is cheap, is good, can be cooked in a number of different ways, and is easy to transport. This last time I chose to cook pasta with roasted tomatoes. It is very simple and makes quite an impression. I noticed that cooking a simple dish with flavorful ingredients is often more successful than cooking a complex dish, so I am sticking with those sort of dish when I cook for a lot of people: it make my life easier and the guests happy.
In addition in this post I am sharing (if blogger cooperates with me) the versatile blogger award that Manu from Manu’s menu kindly passed on to me.
So as promised here are the awards. This part of the post was lost in the cyber space when blogger crashed and not only did it take my post, but also the comments I left on some of the recipients walls (the ones that use blogger), so I hope I am making a good job of reposting. If you catch anything that is not quite right let me know.
Then I am going to pass the versatile blogger award to a couple of the blogger whose site I enjoy reading. Hopefully this time blogger won’t crash taking the award with him again… Thank you for your patience!
