Mo-Jo Pic Modified in Adobe Photoshop Elements

¸.•´ ¸.•*´¨)¸.•*¨)
(¸.•´ (¸.•`¤~♥Here is a picture that I played around with in Adobe Photoshop Elements. Just click on the picture to enlarge and see the detail. We had an extremely intense thunderstorm this morning. I haven't heard or seen anything quite like it in a long time. It's supposed to reach the low 90's today and is extremely humid. I found a used tripod for my camera as my old one has lost a piece to it and the legs don't work quite right. My husband rigged it so that I can use it in the meantime. Yep! He sure is handy! Now I have to figure out what to cook for dinner and not heat up the kitchen! I think it will be red peppers, garlic and onions with red sauce and a wee bit of wine tossed over some fettuccine noodles. Sounds good to me!.•*¨`*.¸.•*¨*.¸¸.•*¨`*

•*¨*.¸¸.•*¨`*Ingredients for Tonight's Dinner.•*¨`*.¸.•*¨*.¸¸.•

1 lb Box Fettuccine Noodles
1 Large, Sweet Vidalia Onion chopped to your preference
1 Tbs Minced Garlic
3-4 Large Red Sweet Peppers chopped into bite size pieces
3-4 Large Tomatoes chopped into bite size pieces
1 Package Kielbasa (Optional...for the men in my family)
(I prefer Turkey Kielbasa if using meat.)

1/2 Jar of Red Spaghetti Sauce
Dark Balsamic Vinegar to taste - I use approx. 2-3 tablespoons
Small Amount (wee bit!) of Red Wine (Optional)
Salt/Pepper to taste

Boil water (with a few drops of olive oil) in a large pot and add the fettuccine noodles. This will take a little time so in the meantime you can get out a rather large skillet and.....

Saute the onions in a small amount of olive oil on high heat. I like them a little brown on the edges. Add the garlic at this point. If I am using Kielbasa, I add the thin slices next. Go ahead and add the balsamic vinegar and wine at this point. The peppers and tomatoes go in last with the red sauce and I simmer these for about five minutes on low. Add salt/pepper to taste.

After the above has simmered and the noodles are done and rinsed, add both together and toss in a large bowl. This dish also works well for us as there are some days when everyone is home at a different time and this heats back up nicely.

I make this dish pretty often in the Summer time as we grow our own tomatoes and peppers. I just pop out to garden and harvest them fresh and off I go.

Oh just a note....don't let my husband anywhere near this....he will eat it all gone!
