Fresh Tagliatelle with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Four Mushrooms

Fresh Tagliatelle with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Four Mushrooms

    My Sunday routine is set.  After church service I do my food shopping for the week’s staples:  fresh fruit, vegetables, yogurt, snacks, my ever-essential avocados.  Though I don’t create a weekly meal plan I generally have a menu in mind and shop accordingly.  The mid-week trips to the market are  to supplement the […]
