I actually cook lot of spaghetti at home because this is one of Gabriel's favorite food. He loves to have spaghetti with carbonara sauce, but today I twist my recipe a bit to let him try sun-dried tomato which I bought from Costco the other day. Surprise, surprise, he ate the spaghetti without carbonara sauce...of course Gabriel didn't take the basil :D
It has been some time since I join any bake-a-long or cooking with a theme, I'm submitting this post to Little Thumbs Up which hosted by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids and Mui Mui from My Little Favourite DIY. The theme of the this month is tomato.
Is lovely to know we are eating lot of vegetables!
