hmm, it is some time I'm thinking of trying to attend Susan's event of tabelscaping.
it is not easy...seeing what she and the others come up with...
but the event is to affascinating not to try ! :)
a bunch of aster ammellus gave me the idea of this "tablescape!
the asters are very easy growing plant giving you pastel colours in early autumn.
from light pink, to lilac colours.
the aster needs to be cut twice in summer, this prevent it to become to high and
the photos were made in a rush, having little time at disposal.
runner, glasses and selfcoloured pot comes from IKEA
the napkin is an inheritance from my husbands grandmother.
pasta with cauliflower and pancetta (bacon)
pasta (I adore spaghetti, but this will be perfect also with a short pasta)
extravergin olive oil.
one (or two) small dry chilis
cut the bacon in small cubes, add the chili and gently fry in little oil.
in the meanwhile put water to boil in a big pot.
when the water is boiling add some salt, the pasta and the cauliflower cut in small equal pieces.
when the pasta is ready, drain it together with the cauliflower.
put all in the pan together with the bacon, heat up and mix well.
