Bessie cooks when it's 100 above (that's 38 in Celcius language)
My goodness gracious sakes alive it's hot out there! You could fry an egg on the sidewalk. At first I gave the Egg ala Sidewalk a thought, I'd fry up an egg or two out on the tarmac ... but then I decided that what I really had a hankering for was pasta maybe with a seafood twist ... mmmm! Since I didn't have a recipe, I thought what in the hootin' and hollerin' would my dear friend Bea do? She'd improvise, of course! So this is me improvising...
1. I cooked up a big pot of Rotini 2. Created a pasta sauce: A little butter, fresh garlic clove (or two), finely chopped onion, a little flour, salt & pepper, vino, 1/2 cream and milk
While that stuff is all cookin' there on the stove, I quickly chopped up some fake crab to add to the sauce. That'll make it seafood-y, I thought to myself.
Next, I threw a green salad together: 1. Romaine lettuce 2. Carrots, thinly sliced 3. Cucumber chunks 4. Tomato chunks 5. Kalamata olives (whole ~ it's more fun to find a pit!) 6. Feta, small chunks 7. Hellmann's Salad Spritzers (Balsamic Breeze)
I jest about burnt the sauce, because I was making the salad, but I caught it just in time. Phew! Everyone gobbled it down, and I didn't get one complaint. In fact, the whole lot wanted seconds.
A perfect summer supper, gingham tablecloth to boot. Sorry 'bout the southern accent in this post, it's so hot out there, I've acquired the accent! xOx Bessie
Bessie & Bea met on the internet (don't tell their kids) ... but they're starting to think they were sisters separated at birth .. just too much amazingness of fun and funk for one family.
