PASTA WITH CREAMY WALNUT AND HERB SAUCE

A blank mind is what I have to offer you this morning, there are times when I have so many ideas, so many things I feel that are ramble worthy here but lately (and I do blame January again) blank is my second name. I do have a lot of ideas about what to eat though because the cold outside and inside our cool stone house makes me perpetually hungry, I’m beginning to feel like a machine, my jaws are continually moving and mowing. And if I don’t eat, I seem to order cookbooks. Or at least adding them to wish-lists.

Anyway, I made a little poll for you to take a look at and to vote on/in, it’s in the right hand marginal!
