Easy Italian Spaghetti Pasta Salad on Friday Faves | foodiecrush.com

Happy Friday friends!

Here we are, middle of May, and I thought those of us who live in Utah had made it round the bend. The weather bend that is. The rule of thumb around here is to always wait until Mother’s Day to plant anything that might freeze, because in Utah, you just never know. Tomatoes, annuals, my sweet Thai basil, you’ve all been on hold.

But look! Mother’s Day passed. We had weather in the 70s. And then, it snowed on Thursday. Everything that wore a weather-sensitive sweater slumped and then frumped after the snow dumped.

But this weekend, the coast is clear and my gloves are going on and the tomatoes are going in so that maybe by the time our first freeze hits come fall, I’ll have picked three or four tomatoes that actually had time to ripen.

In other news, these past few weeks have seen a little different camera work around here with video shooting going on in my kitchen, including one for the Easy Italian Spaghetti Pasta Salad above. Do you like seeing video in recipes? Are you fan of Facebook videos or are you over it? Is there a recipe you’d like to see in video? I’d love to share content you want to see, so please, e-mail me or leave a comment, I’d love to know.

But enough about me, let’s dig into this weeks Friday Faves!
