    I love your pasta dish! Good luck with the garden!! I’m sure you’ll do a beautiful job, so it’ll be rewarding in the long run. 🙂

  2. Funny I would have picked 3 of the 4 for features! Great choices. Have fun in the garden, sounds like a great project and we all expect to hear about it and see pictures 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Great minds think alike! I really should be documenting, taking before and after pictures, etc. But I get so dirty when I’m out there I don’t want want to touch my camera, lol. But I’ll probably take a few pictures. For you, Judi, for you 😀

  3. Thanks Angie for keeping this great group going. You’ve picked a couple great hosts again this Friday!

    Hi Angie Dear☺️!! Wow…colorful yummy pasta.. And all the best for your garden renovations..happy gardening and FF86!!

    It’s difficult to manage time these days. I’ve been trying to get back on track, but I still can’t do it. 🙁 Anyway, we all get busy. Revamping the garden doesn’t sound easy. You dish looks fab, Angie. Thanks for hosting! I hope you have a lovely weekend! 🙂 xx

  6. Share your garden pictures with us Angie! I miss that other side of you! I am hosting a garden club tour in my garden next week so busy outside too and enjoying the glorious weather to go with it! When I saw your bowl of pasta I had to laugh. We were cooking the same thing! Thank you to Jenny and you for choosing the tomato basil tart as a feature! I am honored.

    • Angie says:

      I will have to start taking pictures of the garden, but I’m never completely satisfied with it. One thing might grow well but whatever is next to it might look sickly and ruin the entire picture! I guess that’s why I’m TheNoviceGardener 😀 Your tomato pie sounds so mouth-watering!

  7. I know how you feel. I finally finished my new deck and can start concentrating on the blog again. Thanks for hosting and allowing me to co-host with Judi @ cookingwithauntjuju. Speaking of brown bananas, I have a 1/2 bushel of fresh picked apples staring me in the face. Looks like a apple weekend, Have a great time with the garden. Happy FF!

    • Angie says:

      Did you mean you put up the new deck by yourself?! Wow! You’re the cook AND the builder? Hats off to you! An apple weekend sounds promising. I’m still waiting for the local Fuji apples to appear. My favorite kind for eating and cooking.

    I love gardening …but at the moment I’m in an apartment, makes it hard to grow much. Your pasta looks delicious!! I could eat that everyday! What delicious entree’s we chose from last weeks FF! Can’t wait to see what we have this week! Have a great day and weekend Angie!!

    • Angie says:

      Growing plants in pots can be fun, Arlene! Easier to control. I probably can eat pasta everyday myself. As it is, I eat it at least 2 or 3 times a week! 🙂

  9. Good luck with the garden renovations – like others I hope to see pictures! One of these days we’ll have a bigger space than now and I can do a bit more, though I’m not sure how well I would keep on top of it! And your pasta looks delicious as well, so colorful (as do the features, as ever). Happy Fiesta Friday!

    • Angie says:

      Gardening is much, much harder than cooking. A few things are beyond your control, especially for the organic gardener. Like the weather or critters out there. But it’s also therapeutic. Words of wisdom I neglected to listen to. Start small. And build up yor soil. If you follow those, it should be fun! 🙂

  10. Your pasta dish looks good to me, fresh and colourful 🙂 good luck in the garden, I am no gardener at all…tell you do the gardening and I’ll do the cooking! Happy Fiesta!!! x x x

  11. Hi Angie, I need to do the same with my own garden. It’s so much work! And hard physical work as well. I’d love to see some pictures of the process.

    And I think it is almost time for me to step up to the plate and co-host. This is such a great site.

  12. Lily says:

    Hi Angie, that’s one delicious and gorgeous looking pasta dish and I’m excited about your new garden. I can’t wait to see it when it’s all done. Thanks again for hosting another great party, hugs:)

  13. Happy FF Angie! I have to commend you for your garden efforts, do you wanna come and do mine? It’s seriously a wilderness out there – I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Gardening is not my thing, not even a little bit! Once we tried to the mow the lawn and it took us literally all day haha

    Great features as always 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  14. That is a beautiful pasta dish Angie! Would dig in anytime.
    Best of luck on that garden project! ❤️

    • Angie says:

      Hey Sonal! How are you and family making out in the new place? Dallas? Houston? Pasta is my new BFF these days, lol!

      • Doing good Angie! Muaah!
        Dallas suburbs 😀.
        Pasta is comforting.
        What are you growing in the garden these days?
        Starting my cooking classes here soon, God willing! 🙂
        I am experimenting with chai masala…will send ya some.. 😘

        • Angie says:

          Chai masala for moi? You’re too sweet! I recently went to a wonderful, huge Indian super store and loaded up on spice mixes and all kinds of crispy snacky things. Sadly the spices are not nearly as good as yours and the snacks too hot (spicy). Good luck with the cooking classes! I have no doubt you’ll be successful. You’re a great, great cook and teacher! XOXO

        • 😘 will keep you posted on your packet 😉

  15. Re-vamping the garden will have to wait! I am getting my very long-awaited driveway put in this weekend!! Woo hoo!! Had to share in my excitement!! 😉

  16. Sounds like a lot of hard work in the garden Angie – though it’s always so worth it in the end, when you can sit back and enjoy it! I need to start thinking about what to plant this year in the veggie beds – last year’s produce was all pretty lousy, so here’s hoping for a more successful harvest for 2015! 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Vegetables are the hardest to grow! They seem to need so much attention. I’m downsizing my veggie beds and adding more flowering perennials instead. Our growing season is just about to end over here. Good luck with yours! I find it so fascinating that just when we’re dismantling and cleaning up our gardens, you are about to start yours. 🙂

  17. Good luck with the garden renovations, Angie. It sounds like a big job. I’m never fully satisfied with our garden. Some things grow really well and some things never really take off. Happy FF. Have a great weekend!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Natalie! It really is a big job. But it’s kind of fun and exciting to imagine what it’ll eventually look like. Gardeners are the most optimistic people and are constantly looking forward to the future 🙂

  18. Corina says:

    The Asian chicken nuggets caught my attention last week too! They look great.

  19. wow you had me at the cake, then the pie, then the chicken….drools…..I hope the gardening goes well, now I would lurve to see a piccie of your garden!!! x

  20. petra08 says:

    Oh, revamping the whole garden sounds like a big project! And the past dish looks just lovely.
    Can’t wait to see your “new” garden next year when everything starts to grow 🙂 x

    • Angie says:

      It really is a huge project considering we don’t have a gardener to help us. But it’s a lot of fun! And I can hardly wait for next year myself! 🙂

  21. annareid1 says:

    I know I am REALLY late to the party, but thank you so much for the feature, friends!!! All of your sweet words mean so much to me! 🙂

    Hope your garden re-vamp went well, Angie! That is a big undertaking!
