Easy Tomato Basil Pasta, Gourds, and Farmstands
Tonight, I have an easy recipe. Tomato Basil noodles from the farm stand, stirred with melted butter, and sprinkled with grated mild cheddar and parmesan cheeses. Prepare pasta as directed, stir in butter till all the pasta is coated, and sprinkle with cheese. We served it with sliced, organic avocado. This would be a very festive, light meal, for the Christmas season.
This year, I will winter my begonias, which are lovely and very deep red. My mother had a pot of them that she planted and replanted for years. I remember the same plant surviving from before I went to kindergarten through high school.
As far as watering flowers, here's a tip. If you have a dehumidifier, take the water from it and use it to water plants.
More later, and Happy Fall and Green Living!
