Recovering from Halloween…Still

How was everyone’s Halloween this year? I know I have talked about getting trick or treaters and I actually had some! I had about 20 trick or treaters. My first one was Darth Vader.  Something that happened that was interesting was a few kids asked me for more candy! I never had that happened. I was giving out about two pieces per kid. I had some princesses, Harry Potter, Jack Sparrow, a ladybug, and a few dead doctors and princesses.

Over the past few days I have eaten way too much. I always say everything in moderation, but I went overboard. I normally like to be careful and watch what I eat, but not this week.

I also started planning my Holiday Baking Extravaganza. More on this to come, but I am excited because Walgreens is have a good sale on baking goods this Sunday so I am excited, but more on this next week.

I have a really easy recipe and it is pretty light. This is also a great one for the summer on those hot days but easy enough to make when your low on time or need a light meal.  Its BLT Pasta salad. This is a really light salad that is good and good for you.

Here is what you need

1 Pound Whole Wheat Pasta
2 bags of lettuce or to taste
1 pint of Cherry tomatoes or 4 tomatoes diced
1 bag of Bacon or 6 pieces of Bacon cooked
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese to taste

Bring your pasta water to a boil, add salt and pasta cook to al dente. While the pasta is cooking, put your two bags of lettuce in a large bowl. Chop your Cherry tomatoes in half or add your diced tomatoes. Sprinkle in your bacon. Add your cooked pasta to the bowl and mix. Toss with a little EVOO, salt and pepper, Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

I hope you guys enjoy this and I can’t wait to share more with you guys!
