Dinner : Pasta Pesto with Grilled Shrimp

In the next couple of weeks I'll be launching a new and exciting website/blog.  It will combine The Bliss List and OccasionsKC, and be a home for both!  I've been brainstorming name ideas... what do you think?

Below are sample names for new Lifestyle website : recipes, home, remodeling, gardening, fashion, wedding, entertaining... and tid-bits from my life : )

Life on Fairway Lane, www.lifeonfairwaylane.com
Life at Fairway Place, www.lifeatfairwayplace.com
Jenny Steffens, jennysteffens.com
JL Steffens, jlsteffens.com
JS at Home, www.jsathome.com

Ugh... still thinking!  I'd love to hear your suggestions : )

Anyway, part of the new lifestyle site will include easy recipes and dinner ideas, sooo... 

Delish Dinner : Pasta Pesto with Grilled Shrimp
*inspired by a Barefoot Contessa menu from "Parties"

BELOW: table set with fresh lilacs - 'borrowed' from a bush on the country club next door.  shhh!  That gorgeous french loaf is (gasp) a pilsbury french loaf from a (gasp) can!  Bake with olive oil, sea salt & pepper on top - it is so so good.    In my tablesettings, I like to mix vintage with new, fancy with rustic, casual with elegant, expensive with cheap... 

blue plates : target  |  gold rimmed bread plates : mary carol garrity's nell hills collection  | napkins : brown ticking stripe (love ticking stripe!) from pottery barn  |  leaf salad bowl : walmart.com


BELOW : I mixed together a pitcher of fresh squeezed spritzers.  Lemon, lime and oranges with white wine and sugar.  Served really really cold.   This photo is taken on a built in hutch in my kitchen - it is painted a deep grayish blue.  

BELOW : Love this salad.  Field Greens, Hearts of Palm, Red Pepper, Red Onion, Cucumbers - all sliced really really thinly.  Dressing is olive oil, white wine vinegar, dijon, sugar, garlic and salt and pepper.   Topped with shaved parmesan.  So good!

BELOW : Peanut Butter Brownies for dessert.
