BB: Ridiculously delicious

"Ridiculously delicious."

That's what my daughter said when she took the first bite of this for lunch today. This was especially surprising since not 30 minutes earlier she had spotted the sun-dried tomatoes and declared, "You know I hate sun-dried tomatoes!"

I did?

Must have blocked that one out of my mind.

But it was clearly a moot point, as not a speck of that salad remained after lunch.

For Barefoot Bloggers, July is certainly off to a great and delicious start! Thanks to Cat of Delta Whiskey for choosing Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes.

Since I had to deliver the dog to the groomer this morning, it was not out of my way to stop at Trader Joes for some fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes. Every other ingredient was already in the pantry. While the pasta was cooking, I chopped and sliced and pureed. Assembly was a breeze. The only problem was that it didn't last very long, which, I guess, is a good thing!

Ha! I guess I'm not the only one that hears "You know I don't like ..." only to have it disappear.

I'll have to look that recipe up, it sounds great and I love sun dried tomatoes.

I'm not that big of a fan of sun dried tomatoes either, but I would also say that this is "Ridiculously delicious." Great job!

Not a fan of sun dried tomatoes ... that's a great story. Sounds like a lovely salad.
