…what you got cookin’?

(to hear the song click here)

DD has plans tonight so I made her dinner a little early.  I made a Carbonara-Primavera Pasta dish for her. And I made it all up in my head and I must say…it was very good. I’ll post the recipe here on Road Tests shortly.

It was creamy with bits of smokey tempeh (or as I say “fake bacon”),  sliced baby portas and peas with some spices added in.

It was a hit!! I’m so happy when something I make up works well. I wonder if I can freeze it… milk/cream dishes don’t freeze well but there’s none of that in here…. hmmm. I’ll try it for another time. Maybe put a sample in the freezer and next time make a double batch. There’s enough leftover for two snacks or a large meal. We’ll see what HRH wants me to do with it. lol

Here are pics of my creation(s):

Here is the sauce bubbling it’s happy little heart out!

And here it is! All ready for chow down time!

That was my excitement for the night!

Cheers to you!

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!

I bought some vegan friendly candy for my daughter and some fancy chili-mango chocolate for my husband.

It’s the one time of year where I can combine my two favourite things…the colour purple and hearts!
