What does thai peanut pasta and elephants have in common?

Nothing! That is the beauty of blogging.

But, actually, now that I think of it they do sort of have something in common because aren't elephants afraid of peanuts? No, no. That's not right. Elephants are supposed to be afraid of mice. Hmmm... Oh yea, that's right. Elephants like peanuts.

So... well, here's the elephant (which I painted in ceramics class as a gift for a friends new Granddaughter)

...and here's a "Make it Quick" recipe I saw in the paper yesterday that I'm making for dinner tonight. Sounds easy and different and yummy.

Quick Thai Peanut Pasta

6 oz. thin spaghetti (cooked according to package directions)
1/4 medium red pepper chopped
5 or 6 fresh basil leaves chopped
1/4 cup cocktail peanuts chopped
1/4 cup thai peanut sauce divided

Drain spaghetti and toss with 1/2 of the thai peanut sauce. Spoon into serving dishes and top with pepper, basil and peanuts. Drizzle remaining dressing over top of pasta.

Signing off for now!
