Tomato Basil Spaghetti

Hi everyone... it feels like forever since I've done a blog post, but in fact its only been a little over a week. I've decided to go in a little bit different direction with the blog. Don't worry I will still be baking and cooking up excellent recipes... I've just decided to not do the theme weeks.

I had lots of fun coming up with ideas, and I actually still had a whole year of ideas of what I could do for different theme weeks. It just got a little overwhelming to post on a set topic on a set schedule. So I would end up doing the baking/cooking for the blog and never go the chance to try numerous recipes that I wanted to try.

Speaking of new recipes this tomato basil spaghetti is the perfect addition to your summertime dinner list. It is super easy to make.. and it is a great use for all of those summertime tomatoes. Did I mention that I planned to have 2 tomatoes in my garden, but I got carried away with seeds and they all sprouted. So I now have 8 plants, and numerous homes for them. Come August I am sure I will be giving away tomatoes like crazy.....
