So, right after Cranky got his meat dinner, we had this gentle dish of "pretty" the next day.
Cranky cooked it. He is my favorite wife.
Pretty food really rocks my world.
I don't mean over-pretty food, like decorated cakes and sculpted melons and carved radishes. Sheesh, too much handling of the edibles, if you know what I mean.
I mean pretty food that just happens, because the ingredients are so... pretty!
This dish was a hybrid salad. Served kind of room-temp. Dressed with oil, salt, yadda.
The ingredients were pretty cherry tomatoes, parsley, adorable noodles (tubetti? no, ditalini), and LOL-able cute purple cranberry beans, shelled fresh and cooked just right.
