I don’t miss high school one bit.
This photo makes me laugh.
I do miss a bunch of my high school friends, though. However, through the power of the modern world with places such as Facebook, I am able to keep in pretty close touch with those people.
Who knew that a bunch of my high school friends would turn out to be such fantastic cooks/bakers? I love the photos and recipes that these friends post.
Like this pasta dish that my friend Wendy created. If you like pasta and bacon and cream and cheese, well, look no further for what to make for dinner soon. This is an unbelievably delicious dish.
Gemelli Pasta, Bacon And Peas With Parmesan Cream Sauce
1 lb gemelli pasta, cooked al dente
1/2 lb bacon, cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
10-oz frozen green peas
1 Tbs butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup or more finely shredded parmesan cheese
Pepper to taste
1. Heat saucepan on medium heat. Cook bacon until brown and just crispy. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and set aside.
2. Brown onion in bacon fat until caramelized. Add frozen peas and cook approximately 5 minutes or until heated through.
3. Add butter and cream; cook additional 2 minutes. Add cheese and stir until just melted. Add drained, cooked pasta and sprinkle with bacon. Stir until mixed.
4. Season with pepper and serve hot with additional grated cheese, if desired.
I just stumbled upon Edinburgh based band Matt Norris & The Moon this week. If I am going to trip, this is the way to go.
Scottish Folk. Need I say more?
But it is more. Aside from the lead singer’s lovely voice and those infectious guitars, there is plenty of trumpet, fiddle, flute and accordion to make Matt Norris & The Moon’s music an absolute party.

Here is a video of the new single Shadow From The Sun.
So flippin’ good.
