There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Made-Up Orzo Pasta
A thrown-together recipe that turned out pretty good:
Cook 1/2 lb. orzo pasta according to package directions.
Saute in olive oil:
4 oz mushrooms
1 small zucchini, cubed
1/2 green pepper
1 clove garlic
When the veggies are nice and tender, add:
6 sundried tomatoes in oil chopped finely
2 Tbsp. of the oil from the tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 small can sliced black olives
1/2 cup of the pasta water
When the sauce is nicely heated, add the pasta. Add some chopped fresh basil right before serving.
