Good afternoon!

Morning was filled with cycle class (woo hoo!!), writing, GH convention bookings. I’m about to head to the bakery now for some photography.

Good thing lunch was already made! Leftover pasta salad

And a cara-cara orange! Oranges in the skin are much more beautiful but they are so much easier to eat peeled.

I’m saving a wee bit of room for some Valentine’s test chocolate bread I’m going in to photograph!

My son just commented on how delicious your pasta salad looks! Loves the shape of the pasta…do you know what it is called?

I don’t anymore – the bag is in the trash. But I just found it in this post! Siamesi (at least I think that’s the pasta name – I can’t read Italian!) http://www.katheats.com/under-the-tuscan-sun

9 Jenn January 25, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Yes it’s Siamesi as in twins since the pasta is made of two tubes attached together.

Love those cara cara oranges! They are on sale right now at this discount grocery store I go to for produce! Can’t wait to pick some up!

I bought a few Cara Caras at Whole Foods over the weekend! I was inspired by Kath to have gorgeous pink oranges! Saving mine for an afternoon snack later today…

Ooh, lunch looks so yum! I wanted to ask what kind of pasta noodle that was. It’s so funky, I love it!

Chocolate bread?
I’ll be a taste tester. You know, if you guys need one ; )

Valentine’s bread? Yummy!! I’m thinking dark chocolate cherry?

16 Emily @ The Swallow Flies January 25, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Yummy pasta! I wish I liked oranges more. I just find them to be too much darn work – and too cold for my sensitive teeth. (Those are probably just excuses, though, since I think the true reason is that I just don’t like ‘em!)

17 Mattie @ Comfy and Confident January 25, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I agree, oranges and even grapefruits are way easier to eat peels. When i try to cut a grapefruit in half, and scoop out the goods, I always end up getting grapefruit juice squirted in my eye!

Oh yum chocolate bread! That pasta salad looks delicious!

That pasta looks so delicious! :) I love oranges. I don’t eat them nearly enough. I can’t wait to see what you are photographing for Valentine’s Day in the bakery!

I was eating an orange as I read your post!! Your photography skills are so amazing. I’ve been trying to locate a place on your blog where you talk about what you use and what pointers you have but I’m having trouble locating any information. Have you blogged about your photography before?

Reply

21 KathEats January 25, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Thanks! I actually haven’t done a post on photography, but that’s something I should do. I actually don’t shoot in manual/RAW like a lot of other photo bloggers – it’s just too complicated. I shoot in AV mode with a tripod and edit in Lightroom.

Reply

22 Sneakers2Sandals January 29, 2012 at 12:28 pm

You definitely should post about your skills. Especially if you have different tips/programs than other bloggers. I’ll look into Lightroom.

Sounds like a nice morning!
Valentine bread? I am intrigued and like what I hear! :)

I saw Iowa Girl eating Cara Cara oranges last night. I’m so curious. After all, I am the ultimate orange consumer :).

25 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 25, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Ooh I can’t wait to see what you guys are doing at the bakery for Valentine’s day! I think you should make the cinna-chip bread, but with cinnamon hearts in it (and ship me a loaf – it would pretty much make my life complete!!) LOL! Have a fun afternoon!

Yay for cycle class! I taught this morning… at the grand hour of 5:00 am. I can’t believe I’m still awake!

Sounds like you’ve had a productive day! Oh, chocolate bread sounds so good!

29 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 25, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I think pasta salad is even better the second day. It absorbs so much flavor. My summer pasta salad is not complete without a handful of fresh basil thinly sliced and tossed throughout. Just thinking about it makes me smell summer.

Oh, chocolate bread. Carbs on carbs on carbs – sounds delightful! :)

That is such an interesting looking pasta! I love how it makes the little “S” shapes on the end – I’ve never seen it before!

I’d be happy to be a taste tester if you ever get too full ;) Especially if it includes chocolate + bread!

33 Grace @ What Grace Cooked January 25, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I love cara cara oranges – definitely my favorite kind of orange! Blood oranges are a close second.

Have you ever tried a pomelo? That’s definitely my current citrus obsession. I had one for the first time in europe, and have recently found them in the grocery here in the states. They’re GIANT, with a super-thick pith, and taste kind of like a sweet grapefruit.

34 KathEats January 25, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I have!! They are huge!

Reply

35 Erin January 25, 2012 at 10:42 pm

I have one of those in my fridge and I’m intimidated by it. Do you just peel it and eat it like an orange, or cut it in half and scoop out like a grapefruit? I need some tips!

Reply

36 Grace @ What Grace Cooked January 26, 2012 at 11:03 am

I peel it (you might need a knife to help you get started!) And then eat it in sections, like an orange. The membrane peels pretty easily away from the flesh/part you want to eat. I can’t finish a whole one in one sitting, so I peel the whole thing, then stick about half of it in the fridge in an airtight container. I peel the membrane off as I eat sections. I hope that helps!

Oranges are never my first choice, but every time I eat one I love it and want a second!

Photographing chocolate bread is a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it..and taste test for quality control.

I love that blue bowl. You have the prettiest pottery and bowls and mugs, Kath!

How did the valentines bread turn out? Can’t wait to see what kinds of valentines goodies you all will have at GH…please let the blog world know when its available cause I will definitely need to stop by the store!

Your pasta looks yummy. I recently started eating clementines and now I’m addicted!!

43 Cait's Plate January 25, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Gah! I have yet to have my first Cara Cara orange this winter! I can’t wait to see them pop up!

Also that pasta salad looks just delish. I want to dive in head first right now!

44 Heather January 25, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Looks so delicious… but your oranges always look so shredded. How are you peeling them?

with my fingers!? This one had a particularly tough/thin skin to get off

46 Kavi January 25, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I always think that pasta salad is better as leftovers the next day :)

Yum, just YUM. I love any kind of pasta/grain salad the second day – it’s usually even better once it sits in the fridge overnight and the flavors have a chance to mingle. And I think your oranges look pretty, peeled or not :-)

Reply

50 Angela @ Happy Fit Mama January 25, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I’m in love with Cara Cara oranges right now! I use a peeler from Pampered Chef so everything comes out so pretty. No orange finger nails, either!

I just made chocolate zucchini bread. What kind of chocolate bread are you having at the bakery?

Reply

51 TeenyLittleSuperChef January 25, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Oh man, I love those Cara Cara oranges. I just bought a huge haul of them from Costco and have already gone through 3 or 4 of them (just got em yesterday). That pasta salad looks totally yum. What kind of noodle did you use? I’ve never seen that shape before.

52 Karen January 25, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Love the lapiz blue pottery…it looks handmade. My appetite for oranges these days is seemingly insatiable!
