During most of the year, if I am making a ‘short’ pasta dish, I add vegetables to it, making it a quick, one-dish dinner.
I don’t do that when using ‘long’ pasta (spaghetti, tagliatelle, etc.) and I don’t do it in the fall when we are eating the acorn and / or delicata squash at every meal.
Besides, I try not to be too predictable.
Mon mari is happy as long as I add big handfuls of sage.

I saw a bunny today.
Actually, I saw it twice. I’m sure it was the same one as it went in and out of the same link in the fence both times.
It’s the first one I’ve seen all summer. The neighbor / farmer plowed and planted the field that had been home to all the bunnies and it appeared that they had all moved on to new living quarters. Now that it’s harvested it seems some have moved back.
Oh well…. The potager is done for the year and it will give Guapa something to bark at. I’ll have to remember to close the gates securely again. I don’t want a big one to get stuck inside….. Poor old Guapa would wear herself out quickly trying to chase it around.
