Well, the three day weekend had to come to an end sometime, right?  I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed an extra day off!  We didn’t do much in the way of organized activities but mostly stayed home enjoying time with the kids.  Unfortunately I spent a large portion of my time studying for the mother of all exams, so my extended weekend didn’t carry quite the appeal it normally does.  Even so, I did get to have a bit of extra time in the kitchen and I am very grateful for that!

I have quite a few new recipes I can’t wait to share with you, but I thought I would share this one from the weekend first.  I can tell our garden is starting to fade and the harvests are starting to dwindle.  This weekend I brought in a nice sized zucchini, handfuls of cherry tomatoes, and we had some local sweet corn from our produce delivery.  This dish was made up on the fly to clear my head after a long study session, and we absolutely loved the way it turned out.  Plus, I added bacon.  Bacon makes everything better, right?  This quick pasta dish is a perfect way to use up some of that late summer produce you might have hanging around.
