Thank you Caroline of the Prairie!
Waiting at my door the other day was a good sized package sent from a dear friend, who is a talented writer and included a book of published short stories for teens. (of course I flipped to her story first!) She is tops in talent (i laughed aloud over a few sentences of her story) and so sweet to the very soul...it's in her bones,
Hubby and I are now hooked. This is the 2nd time we've had the privilege of making and eating Dakota Growers Pasta Co. (i feel akin to the pasta due to where it is made - along with the origin of the name Dakota) Caroline told me how good this American grown pasta is, and damn it is! I just found their site...you can read up on it if you are interested. We topped the linguine with Newman's Own (i believe most of the money goes to charity and it is mighty fine sauce)
Dakota Growers Pasta Co. I wonder if Aunt Jill has heard of this? I see there is a current video of Rachel Ray up on their site I'll want to watch.
Truth be told I was feeling blue the day this package arrived and it's been a struggle this week emotionally. Tonight I'm just grateful for a warm home, loving family, loving friends, and good eats. When the blues hit, at some point, there is a reminder-feeling (even is so tiny you could not see it with a microscope) that this will pass.
So, this is my Sunday meal from a loving friend named Caroline! Thank you Caroline! :-)
Wish I had some pics, but our plates are cleaned!
We're also trying to find a store in our area that carries this brand.
Here's Fatty vying for old old Puddie's box in my studio taken the other day...these precious kitties are always up to something.
