Who Knew I'd Have So Much Fun with iPhone Apps

Tonight's dinner started out with two certainties... pasta and the roasted beets in my fridge.   I wasn't quite sure what else would go in the pan... perhaps the last of the frozen shrimp.   So while I was waiting for my Honey, I decided to check and see what any of my iPhone apps might come up with.  

First with their "spinner" that randomly chooses a dish - could be dessert, breakfast... you never know.  This time, it was Death by Garlic.   A perfectly, Heavenly way to go, if you ask me.  Pasta.... Garlic (10 cloves!)   Red chili pepper flakes... Parsley... Cheese.  Seriously awesome all by itself.

But I have never been known to leave well enough alone, so....  Check out my Penne with Shrimp and Roasted Beets & Garlic.  Have you ever seen such a gloriously, brilliantly fuschia dish!?!   You're smiling even before you taste a bite.

Hopefully, this will inspire you to find your own source of inspiration.   And hopefully that will include pasta and you'll be sharing with Presto Pasta Nights this week  to me at ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday night to make it into next Friday's roundup.

I have an Android and it is severely devoid of recipe apps...not good.

I love the way that beets turn everything they touch into such a brilliant color!

Too bad about the Android I love having a bunch of foodie apps on my iPhone, especially when I'm just waiting for someone.

I did check and there is an Allrecipes app for Androids
