Saturday was the first BBQ of the summer, and oh how exciting it was. i was happy to make a pasta salad, which ended up being about everything from my fridge: brown rice pasta, egg noodles, bow tie pasta, some pesto, basil, tomatoes, roasted red onion, garlic and zucchini, capers, Parmesan, feta, and spinach. i added some pine nuts and country french dressing to top it off and the results and reviews were quite good. i also stumbled into my Martha cookbook and went for her shrimp kabob recipe. basically take shrimp and marinate it in evoo and a bunch of cilantro. then string it on skewers (that have soaked if you're using wood ones) with some green pepper and pineapple. the recipe doesn't call for those things, but yet again i had them in my fridge and i love caramelized pineapple. the results were so good- light and summery.
