Hello faithful readers! I have a favor to ask....

Would you kindly click over to Tomato Casual where I've posted Tomatoes and Zucchini - A Match Made in the Garden?

Buon appetito!

Sounds yummy! But, I want to know where the photo of the final dish is? It's not on either page. Or, is my cr*p connection keeping me from viewing it? I am able to see the little photo of the tomatoe though. I love shrimp, so I wouldn't omit it. :)

Blogger sognatrice said...

Your connection is fine in this case, Giulia--it's my camera that's dead :(

Luckily, I have some other photos stored on my computer that I can post for a little while, but none for WCW unfortunately.

They'll probably have to send away my camera to be fixed, which I'm thinking will take months, so I may end up getting a new camera in the meantime...when I can afford it :(

Nice quick dish! Bummer about your camera...I feel you pain!

Blogger Giulia said...

Oh, that's right, you had mentioned about your camera not working. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to bring up sad thoughts by pointing out there was no photo of the dish. I just wasn't thinking.

You know what you could do though? Maybe you can set up one of those donation link thingies in your sidebar? You can call it the "donate towards Michelle's new digital camera so that you can see all of the amazing things this Calabrian chick can offer" fund! Hey, ya never know. ;)

My Melange, this dish is really great for the summer--very fresh and light; thanks for the condolences ;)

Giulia, that's too funny...and not a bad idea...hmmm....

this is another keeper for my long term entertaining this month! between you & shan, i am nearly filled with recipes...
this week's recipe will help me take full advantage of the shrimp - they are perfect right now :)

Blogger sognatrice said...

Qualcosa, well Shan and I *do* aim to please :) I love shrimp so much, we're having it again tonight! Yeah!

Blogger Kathy said...

What a nice summer dish! I'll have to substitute chicken though...hubby won't eat shrimp. *rolls eyes*

Bummer about the camera. :-(

What a beautiful picture!

I went... I saw and commented... I am hungry now!!

You're shocked... I'm sure.


Sognatrice, what is the Italian word for chef? If I was going to call you 'bella good chef' ~ how would I say that?

Or.. I could stick with Patron Saint of Kitchens.

That one works as well.

Kathy, what? No shrimp? That's tragic! I'll eat my fair share for you, don't worry :)

JennDZ, thanks, although I can't take credit for it; if you click on it, you'll go to the site where it's from (and, interestingly enough, a recipe for tomato, mozzarella, and cucumber salad with pan seared halibut--mmmm!).

Scarlett, now follow closely here. The Italian word for chef is "chef" but with an Italian accent. Seriously! The first time I heard P say it, I thought he was just joking, but nope. OK, you can also say "capocuoco" but "chef" with an Italian accent is too cute to *not* use, IMHO.

I guess I'd be a bella brava chef then. But I like being a patron saint too...I'm torn....

Thanks to all who commented--especially those who "double-commented!"

Yum! (Or as my brother JP would say: yummers!) I like zucchini - it's something exotic here in the Philippines. I hope I can try this recipe soon (no picture?). "What's Cooking Wednesday" is great. :)

Blogger sognatrice said...

Tarie, goodness zucchini are just everywhere here--in fact I get kind of sick of them by the end of the summer. Kind of ;)

No photo this time because my camera is broken, but I'm hoping to rectify the situation as soon as possible. I miss it so :(

Don't be torn, I can fix this quick and easy.

I hereby dub you:

Her Ladyship Sognatrice, bella brava chef, the Patron Saint of Kitchens.

It's official.
And I almost peed myself laughing at your chef tutoring. I won't hold you responsible for my incontinence though.

ha ha ha.

Scarlett & V.

Blogger sognatrice said...

Scarlett, I have faith in you! And I'm happy to know that incontinence isn't on my list of responsibilities. Dodged a bullet there ;)
