Woke up very hungry this morning and thinking about some of my favorite meals. After this cup of coffee I will go to the kitchen and find something simple and tasty for breakfast. But in the meantime – let me share two of my favorite dishes that I recently created in my own little kitchen!

First – a fresh vegan salad. Made with all kinds of goodies like Romaine lettuce, pickled beets, fresh orange pieces, carrots, onions, and chopped pecans. With a slightly sweet balsamic vinaigrette drizzled over all. Add a multi-grain roll and I’m smiling from ear to ear with each bite!

Then a new vegetarian recipe I recently sorta made up. Spaghetti noodles cooked, then tossed in a pot on top of the stove with enough tomato sauce to coat. Could be my brother Johnny’s delicious homemade sauce, or could be a quick favorite sauce out of a jar. First, place just a few tablespoons of sauce in the bottom of the dish. Fill my little baking dish about half full – packing down the noodles and sauce. Top with a little ricatto cheese, freshly grated Parmesan, and thinly slice fresh mozzarella. Repeat with packing in noodles and cheese. Top with a little more sauce and place in the 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes (or a little longer).

So easy!! And my little dish makes three servings when also devoured along with a salad or another green vegetable. It’s like lasagna, but just easier than layering with the large noodles. See how pretty?

Limbs. Long limbs.

My, how times change! There was a time when a lady didn’t say the word “legs”, but would refer to those body parts as “limbs”. Well, during NYC’s Spring 2013 Fashion Week those limbs came out! So, I must degress and leave behind that custom … instead … legs everywhere!

Following are two pictures of a beautiful model showing off her L O N G legs. geez. Mine are probably only half as long … dang.

Well, I’m grateful my limbs at least make it up to my hips and take me where I need to go! 🙂 And while I concentrate on that fact, let’s go back to the 70s, when hot pants and mini skirts were king!
