Tricolor exotic pasta platter: celebrating happiness

When I say the word ‘celebration’, what image dose your mind conjure? Don’t you see a joyous place filled with your family, friend and loved ones with lavish food to sooth your cravings. Isn’t that image too enticing for your taste buds! Celebration and food are two most essential tools that fill everyone’s life with exuberance and enthusiasm. They both complement each other and coexist. A celebration is not complete without food and every food is a celebration in itself. In real terms they are aspects that connect us to the profound meaning of life that is to be happy and help others to achieve the same happiness. Now, how can one help others to be happy? Simply by making them a part of our happiness especially those who aren’t as privileged as most of us. So, that’s why I decided to celebrate this 69th Independence day of India (15th August) with an underprivileged little girl along with my friends.

This blog post is an appeal to all those who are reading this, please share your happiness, celebrate your happiness with underprivileged kids as well, they need us. How many times have you seen a small child across a bakery looking longingly at it’s glass display, reach out and buy something for him, he will remember that for his life. We eat lavish exotic food all the time, share it with someone who can’t afford it and it’s taste will enhance ten folds for you.

Now back to the Independence day celebration, the first thing was to decide the menu as I planned to call them up at my home so that little girl would be more comfortable in homely simple environment. I think only my refrigerator can decide the menu so let’s take a look into it.

Fruits

Del monte pasta, farfalle, spaghetti
Del monte pastas, sauces and others

Kids love pasta and the shape of Farfalle and I love it too. From my well stocked Del monte Farfalle and spaghetti pasta also sauces you must have guessed it’s quite an awesome brand when it comes to Italian refine cooking.

Well, that just fits in perfectly. Let’s get on with the recipe then.

Crimson peachy rusky dance in the rain

 Then there was a drop,
Teeny tiny drop
On my peachy cheek
No, my eyes didn’t rain but
the clouds started the game
Oh Yeah, they did.

Then there was rain,
the sky wore the misty veil,
So pretty, that even my stilettos did’t complain
got a smile on my face as I started to dance in the rain. Continue reading “Crimson peachy rusky dance in the rain”
