Roasted Pepper Pasta Salad; The Hot Pink Shower — 20 Comments

  1. As always, your stories crack me up! Better luck this time around.
    And thanks for sharing your gorgeous salad with Presto Pasta Nights.

  2. Oh Katie, that is so funny! I’m glad that you realised in time. House hunting can be both exciting and frustrating. I hope that it’s been pleasant for you.
    This salad looks delish. I love roasted/frilled peppers and dislike raw ones, it’s amazing how the flavours change so much just from roasting.

  3. This is one tasty sounding pasta! I don’t think you can have too much feta and olives.

  4. Oh Katie, I love your stories. You are always so entertaining. I am sorry I’ve been away so much, but feel a bit more caught up now. I am so glad ton mari is home and all is well.

  5. Oh, too funny! Did the French to whom you sold your current house object to the combination bathroom and “petit coin?”

  6. Oh, Katie, THAT was hilarious! Something Mike and I could have done. Too funny.
    Yummy looking salad, too 🙂

  7. That’s Hysterical! I don’t know which is funnier, the pink protective film, or the “bathroom corridor.” The original design sounds so absurd!

  8. I made an orzo salad with greek olives and feta this week, i finished it of togay.
    As always i love your story you have a wonderful way of putting things down that are funny and entertaining and yet so true.

  9. Ruth, glad to bring a chuckle… It’s funny – NOW!
    Lydia, we’re off again… the horn is honking for me as I type!
    Nora, it IS fun, in a masochistic sort of way…
    Kevin, I totally agree!
    Neil, I don’t think I could have faced that bright pink in the mornings.
    Zoomie, we sold to an Aussie – so ‘no worries’
    Neen, absurd, poor use of space, but very, very typical.
    Shayne, orzo… that sounds good! And, thanks ;-))
    Pat, we learn…sometimes slowly
    Pam, yeah…NOW!
    Heidi, nice to know we’re not alone….
    Jeni, I know what being busy is like – I’m a bit frantic myself right now!

  10. I really have to remember to take the computer to the cellar to read your posts in the middle of the night or I wake Gorn up laughing. That is such a great story!! I do hope you find the house!

  11. You’ve got such a fantastic sense of humour!!! :D… I love reading your stories!
    How come didn’t you use pink pasta for this dish ;-)?

  12. that is absolutely hilarious!!! i would have freaked out too — well, actually, i would be ok with a pink shower, but i think my fiance would have freaked enough for us both. 🙂

  13. Tanna, tell Gorm I’m sorry about that….
    Nuria, pink pasta… Hmmmmm….
    Katy, it was really, really bright! Too bright for morning for me!

  14. Oh, my gosh, you’re opening reminded me of that short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper.” Of course, I definitely want your story to have a happier ending! 🙂 It was a film? Oh, that is too funny, Katy. And what a fantastic recipe! I love everything about it.

  15. This is just soo funny!!!
    (And aren’t men the same everywhere with that no-reading-the-instructions-attitude?!)

  16. Susan, so far, still happy ;-)) I am always amazed by how much we don’t know…
    Lien, absolutely. Usually he throws them out right away and I have to go dig them out of the trash!
