Weird fishes

This weekend I had the pleasure of entertaining my friend Steph, who I met at a tropical island ecology field course in the Bahamas (if any of our readers are biology students studying in Ontario, I highly recommend that you look in to the OUPFB!). Here are two of the dishes I made for her:

Pasta salad with black olives, green onion, red onion, scapes, corn, red peppers, capers, various herbs and chickpeas with a lemon-garlic dressing

Cold pasta salad: whole wheat bow-tie noodles and assorted vegetable noodles with black olives, green onion, red onion, scapes, corn, red peppers, capers, various herbs, and chickpeas with a lemon-garlic dressing

Roasted potatoes with lemon-garlic dressing and various spices.

Oven roasted potatoes with lemon-garlic dressing and various spices.

Steph is involved with a really neat program in Kingston, Ontario called Fish and Frogs Forever. The program was initiated to bring attention to the plight of Kingston’s aquatic creatures faced with water pollution from the city’s streets. The following picture is dedicated to her, and to all the Radiohead fans who got rained on yesterday in Montreal.

    I think I could eat my own body weight in cold pasta salad during the summer. I love the big orange shells you found for yours!

    Okay, you just made two of my favorite things. I adore cold pasta salad, especially in the steamy summer months, and oven roasted potatoes are the best all year round!

    That pasta looks so good. I don’t think I’ve ever had whole wheat bow-ties and I want
    some! And the potatoes are making me wish I’d been more ambitious at tonight’s dinner.
