Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Smoked Chicken, Lime & Avocado Pasta


This was such a pleasant surprise!

Another Donna Hay recipe, it's pasta tossed with a dressing of olive oil, lime zest & juice, salt & pepper, and a bit of sugar.
To this, add thinly sliced smoked chicken (or in our case, smoked Boca 'chik' patties!), and arugula.

Top with avocado & grated Parmesan.

I'd been worried it would be tart, or overwhelming. Instead, the lime mostly brightened the pasta. The smokiness of the chicken (or faux product) paired with the peppery arugula, and creamy avocado...well, I can only tell you that it was really good. Alex literally sang it's praises.

Time to unpack your grass skirt, and gather your coconuts, because for our 42nd get-tether, it's Tiki, Two here at Blog Party!

Hope to see you there.

It sounds lovely! Is it from her mag or from a book?

Fifikins; this was from one of the mags; though it's entirely possible it's in her 'Chicken' book, too.
