Hiatus & Presto Pasta Hosting

Recently I had a few short-notice major life changes occur.  The entire ruckus caused me to become a first-time home buyer.  Yeah!

Filling out tedious amounts of paperwork, packing your life into tiny boxes, and bribing friends to carry your stuff doesn't leave for much fun kitchen time.  Boo.

Thanks to Google Reader my favorites bar is loaded with inspiration that will keep me busy for months to come after I get settled.  Want a back load of inspiration for yourself?  Go follow Presto Pasta Nights!

(Seriously.  Go check out the site.  I promise to still be here.)

Such a fun idea brought to you by Ruth at Once Upon a Feast.  Since the bloggers are not pressured into themes or secret ingredients you find this eclectic mix of fabulous pasta dishes.

What would you share?  The options are almost limitless.  Wikipedia lists over 150 pasta shapes.  Now consider the different ingredients and preparation techniques.  Someone much better at math could tell you the astounding number of possibilities that exist.

I am excited to announce that I am hosting this week's Roundup.  Joining the fun is way easy:

Your dish must have some type of noodle.  Hot, cold, salad, soup, main, dessert...doesn't matter what you creatively do with your noodles, just make sure they are in the dish.

You will need to mention that you are submitting the dish as your entry for this week's roundup for Presto Pasta Night.  Be sure to link to the website!

Since I am hosting this week you will need to mention and link to Slap Happy Kitchen.   

Now that your post is finished you will need to email me a link to your post and a picture of your dish to trish (at) slaphappykitchen (dot) com.  Please also CC Ruth in case I am hit by a bus or have technological difficulties.  Her email address is ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.

Please have your entries emailed no later than Thursday evening so we can all be drooling on our keyboards by Friday evening. 


  1. Nothing like a new home to inspire! Hope your kitchen is central to that.

    And thanks for hosting this week's Presto Pasta Nights. I'm already trying to think up something interesting.

  2. Enjoy settling in your new home.

    My PPN entry is winging its way to you.
