3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses.

Meatless Monday: Sweet Pea Parmesan


One of my favorite ways to go meatless is to simply throw together pasta, parmesan, and a green veggie like peas, broccoli or asparagus tips.

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)

*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles

*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)

*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)

*1/2 C grated parmesan

*pepper to taste

*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)

Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.

Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
