sweet summer night

I must apologize for my absence and lack of inspiration for the blog...

I went to see Julie and Julia with my mum today and it just totally inspired me to get cooking and wear ridiculous brooches all the time (Amy Adams has a different one on in every scene!)
So I decided to make a delicious summery pasta for tonight, to go with my summery polkadot skirt, which I rediscovered crumpled in the bottom of my closet... It's gotta be three years since I've seen that thing!

My trusty Jamie Oliver cookbook offered me the most delicious of summer pastas: spaghetti con gamberetti e rucola, apparently meaning spaghetti with shrimp and arugula. Lemony, spicy, with a lovely splash of white wine, it's perfect when eaten on the front porch.
