Blueberry coffee cake, easy peasy pasta and my roses~

A great weekend of sun at last ~
Time with special friends♥, yummy food and our first swim of the season....
I'm first showing off more of my beautiful roses!

Double Delights in a very special little hessian bag all the way from Canada

 the easy peasy pasta ......

here is my recipe for a delicious quick and easy pasta~
1 pkt of Knorr dry "Chicken Ala King" sauce
fry a few chicken boneless thighs, a touch of garlic with some sweet peppers, an onion (or a few shallots), mushrooms, brocolli tender stems and about 150g of streaky bacon (panchetta is better)
Add 250ml cream to pkt of Knorr sauce and mix well. I also add 250ml  fat free milk.
Toss this sauce with pasta of your choice.
Serve with shavings of parmessan cheese
Delicious for someone studying ♥

Then onto a lovely refreshing pound cake I found here

Now onto more of my roses ......

  ♥ this rose called Blue Moon!

 little tussie mussie  from my garden for a dear old friend ~

Take care!

I'm sharing my roses with Saturady Showoff.
A Return to lovliness!
