That's Shallota Flavor Spaghetti

I tried this recipe from Rachael Ray recently and it turned out pretty good. It’s a mix of pasta tossed with garlic, shallots, olive oil, and parsley. I omitted the cheese obviously and added more garlic. It was a yummy lunch and could easily be made heartier by adding some veggies. Simple but tasty food. I would make this again when I’m feeling lazy in the kitchen.

Since it’s May, I thought I should mention my gardening plans. Unfortunately, I won’t be having a community garden plot this year. I can’t stand Joni Mitchell but I have to quote her: “they paved paradise and put up a parking lot”. Yes, they moved the garden plots to make way for a parking lot. The new plots are smaller and they can’t guarantee when they will have running water available. They aren’t even finished with the parking lot construction, which is right next to where they moved the plots. Instead of a community garden plot, I going to do a small container garden on our tiny patio with some hot peppers, tomatoes, and a variety of herbs. I also planted some “disco mix” marigolds in a planter out front. What are your plans for a garden this year?

Hope you have a fabulous day 🙂

    Sorry to hear about the community garden, that’s awful! I don’t know what sort of garden we’ll have this year. Scott is hurt and off work, so he can’t help me build a garden in our new backyard. We have a pretty big flower and rock garden, so I may just plant some stuff in there and keep my fingers crossed.

    What a bummer about the community garden. Your container gardens sound like they’ll be nice though. I’m interested in the disco mix of marigolds. Post a pic.

    Oh, that’s a downer about the garden. Alas I have but a small student apartment, so tomato plants it will be again!
