It’s going to be a busy weekend for me. I’m trying to get myself organized and ready to go back to work on Monday. How is summer going to be over already, so quickly?!?
The husband and I are also moving the daughter to her dorm this weekend. Yep, she’s flying the coop ??
Why must they grow up?!
I’ve been trying to make her last week prior to the move as pleasant and as delicious as possible. Luckily, she’s easy to please. Just give her a bowl of pasta, and she’ll readily gobble it up. Even better if you add pesto to it.
She will eat anything with pesto! To borrow her phrase… Pesto is the Besto!
And that’s why I keep a garden. And in that garden are lots and lots of Genovese basil. And other types, too.
Anytime pesto is needed, I just run out and grab fresh basil. Yes, run and grab!
Okay, Now It’s Features Time!

“I have a craving for curry dishes and this Vegan Panang Curry is a reminder that I need to satisfy the craving soon.” — Jhuls
“I love that this cake is made with whole-grain flour and honey. It’ll make me feel less guilty consuming it. And apple season is just around the corner.” — Angie

Thanks for hosting a great fiesta!! I think we forget how much work putting together and running a party every week is – I so appreciate your time to keep this going. It’s a great party! Have a wonderfully relaxing weekend.
You’re welcome. And you’re so right. There are times when I feel like stopping, or maybe taking a hiatus but can’t bring myself to pull the plug.
Hi, Angie! How exciting to have your daughter going to College; it seems like yesterday when we drove our older daughter for her first year at U of Toronto, but this year, we will be driving our younger one (also at U of T) for her last! That pasta salad looks irresistible, and I get your “run and grab”; we are all basil lovers around here, too. Thank you for hosting another great party, I am sharing #4 Paddle Cactus – A Healthy Breakfast. Have an awesome weekend!
It’s exciting for her, that’s for sure. I’m not ready for my baby to leave! Not sure what I’ll do without her. I’ll be smothering my fur baby Skye ?? Thanks for the healthy breakfast recipe. I don’t quite know what to do with nopales except for pickling them.

Thanks for sharing, Estelle. Chicken fajita burrito sounds fabulous. It’s my kind of food.

Thank you for hosting Angie.
Thank you for the inspiring ideas and recipes – GREAT party as always. This week I brought CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN with GRIDDLE POTATO LATKES & GREEN CHILE GRAVY, BLUEBERRY LEMON/LIME CURD MUFFINS and CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CRINKLE COOKIES. I hope you’re having a GREAT week.

Aww! She must be so excited, Angie. I am staring to feel what you’re feeling. My daughter is going to college next school year. I mean, I still don’t know where she’d like to go, but I am hoping and praying that she’ll decide to stay and study in our city. Let’s see.
Anyway, the pesto pasta looks really good. It’s so nice you have basil in your garden.
Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie. Stay safe always! x
