Pasta Salad with Warm Goat Cheese; Larks v Owls — 21 Comments

  1. I’m a morning person but when a late evening presents itself…no probs either!
    The breading on the chevre looks like you added some corn flour in the mix, a nice, gritty texture.

  2. caffeine and M&M’s in front of the computer screen at 3 am – I thought it was just me. Ithink it’s a requirement for blogging.
    Nice recipe.

  3. Now this is something that this lark could sink her teeth into. You had me with even the mention of goat cheese Katie. I am on the computer at 5..that is AM…blogging my little heart out:D

  4. I have managed to have a fairly routine schedule for 29 years of teaching (one to go!) but I’m definitely an owl too, and revert back to it every summer.
    Salad sounds delicious!

  5. I’m normally a lark but when My Beloved is away on business I tend to stay up later than “normal,” becoming somewhat owlish. I don’t currently have any dogs to confuse so it works out fine. The cats just saw it as an additional food opportunity!

  6. Peter, actually just dry bread crumbs… and an herb or 2
    TBTAM, great minds think alike….
    Val, sometimes I’m still up then, but not often…
    Kalyn, nights are so peaceful… all those larks are in bed!
    Zoomie, my girls are confused anyway, what with Other Human being gone!
    Tanna, okay, I’ll share….but only ’cause you’re nice.

  7. Chevre is my favourite cheese in the WORLD. I could live on that alone (and roll around happily, I’m sure).
    I like getting up in the morning, I have to admit. The world is so quiet and feels fresh and full of potential.
    Have a good night… 🙂

  8. This just happens to be one of my all time favorites……and you have all that delicous chevre right out your door! How wonderful!

  9. I have a hard time with this question I can’t stay up past 11PM but I hate getting up before 8AM but I rarely sleep through the night. I like to think that I would be a morning person if I slept between teh hours of 3AM and 5AM or maybe I am a night person in denial

  10. I really like the sound of a pasta salad with breaded and fried goat cheese!

  11. Thanks for commenting on my chicken salsa recipe! This looks delicious, I can’t wait for my tomatoes to come in so I can incorporate them into something like this.

  12. Warm melty goat cheese is always a good thing!
    Lately, and this could be do to age ;)…I can’t sleep later than 6-7am, even when I don’t go to sleep until 2am.

  13. Katie, Another lovely recipe to put in my must try file. I love goats cheese. Glad the fox took care of your snake. And I am a lark but hubby is converting me to owl since I retired. Although I still get up at 5.30am.

  14. I am definitely a lark (without the singing though) and even m&m’s in the middle of the night wouldn’t help me!
    The pasta looks awesome. I too, adore goat cheese. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

  15. I’m definitely an up early person. The problem is that I’ve usually exhausted myself by around two in the afternoon!

  16. I too am a lark married to a night owl. But the older I get, the more I’m turning into a bit of both — in a weird way I guess hubby and I are actually spending more awake time together!

  17. Heidi, I like being up at dawn….it’s just that for me, it’s still up, not just up!
    Jann, I adore chevre… Can’t believe there was a time when I didn’t.
    Shayne, amazingly, what you said makes perfect sense 😉
    Kevin, that goat cheese is a bistro staple here!
    Kelly, I wish I had my own tomatoes to look forward to – lucky you!
    Poppy fields, Yeah, I’ve been noticing that too – except in winter when it’s still dark at 8:30….
    Pat, I absolutely abhor getting up in the dark…. and 5:00 is still dark here! (On the other hand it’s light until almost 11:00.
    Ruth, most of my family are larks… I’m (as usual) the odd one out!
    Pam, another advantage for us owls…
    Lydia, strange how that happens, isn’t it? Do we get to a point where we no longer sleep? (I know that’s not true…I have an aunt in her 90’s – 12 hours minimum!)

  18. I think your pasta is really delicious! Very interesting how you make warm chevre, rolled in breadcrumbs and then oven baked… I can’t wait to try it.

  19. Tanna, by friend said she was speechless when real bulls came charging in!
    Daniela, the crumbs keep all the gooey cheese in….
