Friday Link Love
Alexis and I have a busy day ahead. Katherine and the boys are coming over so the kids can run all over the side of the mountain, before it goes from cold (earlier this week) to nice today to hot as Hades this weekend! I hope they run and run and run and did I mention run? And then tire themselves out! ;oP I had meant to write this up last night, but well we talked about what my day was like yesterday and it just didn't happen and I'm writing it up this morning!
Anyway, let's jump right in shall we?
Did you know that Amazon has a food blog? Well they do and they shared two recipes for lemon pasta dishes, one from Mario Batali for Fettuccini Al Limone, and the other from the Moosewood Cafe for Creamy Lemon Pasta! All I can say is yum! You can see them both here.
Alexis loves the movie Ratatouille . Ever since I saw the movie I've wanted to make the dish, but it's one of those things I keep forgetting. Anyone else have that problem? Forgetting and then going on to something else. Oh wait!...I'm doing it again! ;oP Anyway Vegalicious posted a Garlic Baguette with Ratatouille that brought the idea back to the forefront! Alexis has been wanting to try eggplant, so maybe we'll make some Ratatouille!
Half Baked shared a Rustic Apple Tart that looks right up my alley! I adore things with apple!
When I finally get to make my maiden voyage to Ireland (and trust me I'm going to one day soon!) one of my first stops is going to be Murphy's Ice Cream in either Killarny or Dingle or both! Until I do make it over there however I read several Irish food blogs including Kieran Murphy's Ice Cream Ireland. Who is Kieran Murphy? Sean and Kieran Murphy are the brothers who started Murphy's Ice Cream and recently on Ice Cream Ireland he shared Dark Chocolate Ice Cream! I think I like most anything Dark Chocolate, and most definitely ice cream!
Coleen's Recipes shares a pasta salad that uses Homemade Ranch Dressing, and not homemade in opening the packet and making it with buttermilk, sour cream and mayo, homemade as in made from scratch! I can't wait to try that!
Fruit Tart shared an adaptation of American Black Forest Cake. Chocolate and cherries...You can't go wrong there!
I go through stages with bananas....Sometimes I can't get enough of them, then others I can go months without touching one! Right now I'd be in the loving them stage. When I saw the TriniGourmet's “Set the House on Fire” Banana Cream Pie I had to convince myself not to lick my screen! ;oP Yum!
What caught your eye this week?
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going downstairs to make a tomato salad for lunch and get ready for my youngest nephew's delicious hair. I mean seriously...He's just too cute. I wish I could show you a picture, but I
won't. Oh well. You'll just have to take my word for it! ;oP Just picture a fuzzy little head with hair sticking up all over it as if it you had rubbed a balloon all over his head. It just points up and refuses to lie down and it's just adorable!
I'm off! Have a fabulous Friday everyone! TGIF!
Update: 10:08 PM: My sister and I discussed it and decided we'd show you Grant's hair...We just won't show you his face! ;oP
Seriously though is that an adorable 'do or what??
