Orecchiette pasta will forever remind me of the trip I took to Puglia, Italy with my mom to attend The Awaiting Table cooking school. We learned how to make our own little “ear” pasta; it was surprisingly easy! When I saw a box of orcchiette pasta on the shelves at the store, I couldn’t resist.
Autumn is in full swing here; although Winter may be making an appearance very soon. The last of the leaves are falling off of our Aspen trees outside my window and the ground has lost it’s green tint in exchange for an amber glow. These views and the cool fall evenings make you want to cuddle up with a nice cozy meal. This meals is perfect for this time of year.
Happy Monday everybody! If you read my last post, you heard my side comment about my dream of opening a food truck. Many of you were intrigued by this, so I figured I would share a little bit about that with you all. I just love the idea of food trucks, being able to go where ever you want, the beach, a ski resort, main street, etc. I also love the fact that once you have made enough money you can pack up and go. Gives you time to do other things that you love. I would want to have a sandwich food truck; I love sandwiches. I think there are just so many possibilities and ways to be creative. My sandwiches would be super unique and out there, with the option to build your own as well. So there is a little bit about my dream of owning a food truck, haha. And yes, the squash are back. You didn’t think that winter was over yet did you?
I came across a recipe for Indian Meatballs while I was in New Zealand last summer, but never got around to making them. This week I decided to add to the recipe I found to make this dish. This dish is not very spicy because the coconut milk tones down the curry, but can be made spicier with Siracha if you desire. This took me a bit longer than I expected… I never realized that making meatballs was such a hassle!
