Pasta with Morels and Vodka Sauce きのこウォッカソース


This is yesterday’s early lunch I made after we came back from a quick walk to the local farmer’s market.

Love it when we found interesting stuff at the market.

I got these beautiful morel mushrooms again from Big River Pizza (the pizza restaurant is located right across from the market), and the funky looking pasta was found at the farmers market.



The pasta was thick and chewy (in the most positive way), which tells you it’s not a mass made product.

This vodka sauce was creamy and delicious, but at the same time it’s quite light, just the way I like it.

Peony is everywhere!

I love its elegance and vibrant color.

Terry bought these for me at the farmers market!

Fresh flowers always make me feel special.

They really brighten up our kitchen, and I love it.
