Long summer days make me yearn to spend time outside – going for evening walks, drinking wine on a neighbor’s deck, staying out late. The abundant daylight makes me want to spend more time playing and less time cooking. Leo’s arrival, coupled with our desire to soak up these long summer nights, has meant our meals have been less involved than usual. What I crave this time of year is fresh, light, simple meals. This pasta has been a regular in our house, and it’s just the kind of dinner that works for us right now. A quick, punchy pesto is tossed with pasta, sautéed kale, toasted walnuts and creamy feta.
I’ve got plenty of delicious recipes (um, mostly ice creams) to share with you guys, but I’ve been too busy soaking up those fleeting newborn snuggles to take photos of everything I want to post. Leo is such a dreamboat, and life with two little ones has been much less of an adjustment than I thought it would be, so I’ll be back soon.
