What's for lunch?
Sometimes I just look in the refrigerator to see
what I can pull together for lunch.
Today I found 1/2 of a tomato, 1/2 of an avocado,
a few pieces of bacon, and a little leftover grated cheese.
All I needed to do was cook a little pasta, and
Chop those few ingredients.
The rest of the ingredients I usually have on hand
are: fresh basil from my garden, garlic, lemon juice,
olive oil and s&p. Toss it all together.
Lunch is being served on the patio!
