Everything feels so still right now. I am enjoying the solitude right now and the idea of curling up on the couch and escaping into a good book has me held hostage. The dark clouds and showers are perfect. My favorite things about fall are: Gigi wearing Babylegs with every outfit, spending way too much time in my sweatpants, baking cookies and cakes and muffins and breads, bright orange pumpkins on my dining table, watching favorite movies like The Apartment and Julie and Julia over and over again while eating all the Halloween candy... What are you favorite things about this season?
This time of year I love a rich pasta dish but I tend to get stuck on red and cream sauces. With fresh herbs like thyme still growing strong and shellfish available at the market, I decided to indulge in a different kind of pasta dish. Clams with Spaghetti cooked with shallots and white wine, fresh thyme and lemon zest. It's still rich and indulgent but it is equally light and fun. Don't forget to pick up a great bread to soak up all the wonderful sauce!
