NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

Last weekend was two sunny baseball games which our grandson's team won… plus a trip to Northeast Minneapolis for Art-A-Whirl including a stop at brand new studio #246 in the Northrup King building… MBMB-Made by Michelle Brusegaard. Michelle is my husband's cousin's son, whose grandmother used to work with my mother… small world. She and Garth were both beaming with the excitement of the crowds flocking into her new studio, she now has her own work space!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

With the season of summer gatherings upon us, this simple pasta recipe from allrecipes.com is a great one for bringing to cookouts or to have for lunches throughout the week. Buckwheat Queen, who submitted the recipe, said it is a recurrent dish in Italy during the warm/hot seasons… good lukewarm or cold, the more it is allowed to sit the more the flavors attach to each other.

PASTA FREDDA

  • Pasta freddaHalf 10-ounce package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 7 ounces small fresh mozzarella balls
  • 3/4 cup black olives
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and cool to room temperature.

Combine tomatoes, mozzarella balls, olive oil, basil and oregano in a large bowl; toss to evenly coat. Add pasta and toss.
