Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely Father’s Day celebration. Today, I am showing you my new favorite Chico’s dress & summer truffles.
This very hot early start to summer has seen me wearing Chico’s dresses and I love the options I selected.
Most recently, I showed you the Linen Popover Dress in Flame Scarlett.
It is such a cool, easy dress and I love the vibrant color!
But, a new favorite is now in my closet.
NEW FAVORITE: CHICO’S DRESS
Now, to the collection I have added my new favorite Ruched Sleeve Popover Dress in Olive.
This dress is so easy…lightweight, great design, my colors, and it literally just pops over my head and away I go.
I like the way these dresses are design to give a flattering fit to all of us who have curves.
When I grab my favorite parasol, designed to keep sun away, I can stay cool, calm and collected!
I will be wearing this dress to many places…shopping, running errands, lunch with friends, church, the movies…you name it!
I love gold with olive, so I am wearing it today with a gold Chico’s bracelet (a hit from the past) and my gold UGG slide sandals.
So, here is a slideshow of dresses and parasols just for you as we stare into the face of the official beginning of summer tomorrow:
NEW FAVORITE SUMMER TRUFFLES
Yesterday, I shared that I was checking off the summer list….try a new cuisine.
Technically, the definition of the word “cuisine” is: a style or method of cooking, especially as characteristic of a particular country, region, or establishment.
So, let’s head over to Italy to enjoy summer truffles.
Actually, I did not go to Italy, but my neighbors did and they returned with a jar of Italian Summer Truffle Sauce just for us.
I new it required something special that I have not done before, so I created a new recipe with a little of this and a little of that for a Summer Pasta with Italian Truffles.
Pamela’s Summer Pasta with Italian Truffles
In a saucepan, cook:
1 teaspoon cooking olive oil
1 sliced onion
(After it cooks a couple of minutes, then add)
1 5 oz. container of fresh greens (I use an organic super green blend with baby spinach, mizuna, baby chard, and baby kale)
3 cloves of minced fresh garlic
Dash of garlic salt.
1 teaspoon of dried Italian herbs
½ teaspoon of white pepper
Stir in small jar of summer truffle sauce (I found this similar jar at Williams Sonoma)
In a separate pan, cook
12 oz. of your favorite pasta (Mr. B likes angel hair and we get Barilla with Protein)
Drain and put back in the pan
1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream…or half n half
Then stir in 3 Tablespoons of Adams Reserve White Wine and Garlic Butter seasoning If you love pasta, you will love this seasoning…so good! I am glad I discovered it at our recent wine tasting!
½ cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
After that mixes well, stir the first pan of veggies and truffles into the second pan and serve.
We enjoyed this delicious dish this past weekend with the Oregon wine (Hi Connie!) I told you about in the Wine Tasting Post.…so good…another new favorite!
I won’t tell you how many helpings Mr. B ate!! But he did get up and run the next morning….
Working the list has put such a spark in my summer!! I am really glad Leigh Ann and I decided to do this…..
A little side note…I get the stitches out of my shoulder today from my recent skin cancer surgery…second one I have had…but am so glad to have full use of my arm back!
Make sure you are checking your spots!!
Now, anyone else out there love to cook Italian with truffles? If you have a favorite way, please share! New favorite dress, cuisine, wine….so much fun for summer 2022!
