If you are new here, every Sunday I join my friends Cindy and Mary Ann and we share our favorite finds of the week, like this delicious pasta!
What will you need to have on hand for this pasta?
You only need 5 things and you might have three of them on hand already. You can find Furikake seasoning at Trader Joe’s! I forgot to check to see if they have miso-paste. We buy ours at H Mart which is fast becoming my favorite market.
- Miso paste
- parmesan cheese
- Furikake Seasoning
What is miso?
Is miso healthy?
Yes! Miso is good for you! In fact, it’s incredibly healthy. It’s rich in probiotics and contains many vitamins and minerals. Read more here!
How long does miso keep?
You can keep miso in the refrigerator or freezer for up to a year. We keep it in the freezer and it does not have to be thawed. You can take out a scoop when you need it. I store it in a freezer bag.
This sounds a lot like cacio e Pepe
You’re not wrong if you are thinking that. In fact, after looking at a few recipes, most did make the comparison. Of course, the main difference is the miso paste. The technique of making it is very similar to cacio e Pepe.Print

2. Off-white jeans
I just bought a pair of Topshop white jeans. Trying to find the right pair of white jeans can be tricky. Sometimes they are just too white, or too thin or too tight… I ordered these from my local Nordstrom and opted to pick them up in person, thinking that I would try on and probably return them on the spot. But they are just right. Thick, off-white with tan stitching, a raw hem, and $75.
I am so intrigued by this tie-dye technique using ice cubes and powdered dye. I saw it recently on Schoolhouse Electric‘s Instagram. After a little research, I see that Food52 featured this technique in July of 2016! You can see it here. Has anyone tried it? This seems like the perfect summer project for when Madeline is home visiting later this month.
4. Mary Ann’s new porch swing
I used Patio Lane cushions on our long window seat in our attic.
Madeline’s small wIndow seat in her former Manhattan apartment.
We also used Patio Lane for our DIY corner bench with our Saarinen table.
5. Wearing all white
I love the idea of wearing all white in the summer, except when I’m in the city. Cindy has an excellent post on how to wear all white and look so elegant! A must-read, right here!
