The Simply Luxurious Life®: Short and Sweet  

August 21, 2010

Short and Sweet

Penne pasta with tomato sauce topped with mozzarella and fresh basil from the garden, paired with a luscious Isenhower Cellars Syrah was my treat to myself last night and I must say, I enjoyed myself.

The temperatures have decided to decrease a bit which will make for a very enjoyable weekend.  What are you looking forward to doing today? It always amazes me as to how quickly Saturday morning is gone, so enjoy your morning.

Sounds like a perfect dinner. I had whole wheat fettucini primavera last night but I plan on making some tomato sauce with the fresh basil I have this weekend. Might be too much pasta within a few days but I guess I can splurge since it's the weekend :)

Have a wonderful one! xoxo
