Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

An Easy Summer Supper

Some call the evening meal supper while others call it dinner. At Linderhof, it depends upon whether or not it is the main meal of the day -- if it is, it's dinner and if it's not, then it's supper!

Mostly, we dine in the evenings at Linderhof but sometimes on Saturdays and often on Sunday's, we have supper.

And supper besides being light are also easy. A quick meal to put together and a lighter meal because we've eaten a bigger meal earlier in the day.

Pasta is often the entree of choice for Sunday suppers. It's easy and can be light.

Tonight, was one of those nights -- a quick pasta supper . . .

Egg pappardelle tossed with Farmer's Market oven roasted tomatoes with basil in oil (from a favorite vendor, Mary, who not only has amazing produce but also has some great products to sell like these tomatoes), topped with garden basil and a shower of Parmesan.

And to make the meal a little more special, slices of baguette that I made this afternoon.

I'm joining Yvonne at Stone Gable for What's On the Menu Monday!

Same here. Evening meal during the week dinner, but we reverse it Saturday and Sunday and call it high tea.
