Food Photo Friday - Many More Minis

My affinity for "minis" in food preparation has been previously documented on this blog.
This weekend, I eagerly continued the theme.
Our local grocery store had mini piccolini farfalle pasta on sale, so I made this pasta salad with pretty red and orange peppers, sauteed vidalia onion and garlic, and toasted slivered almonds. It's bright and fresh and summery looking (plus the teeny tiny bowties are just sooo cute).

I also managed to get my hands on another ingredient that I've been dying to play around with in the kitchen - adorable baby zuchinni!

I sauteed them up with a whole bunch of onion rings and sliced portobello mushroom caps. I added just a touch of salt and freshly ground black pepper and the flavors of the vegetables themselves will take center stage.

Do you make any "minis"? What do you do?
Are you also crazy enough to go on cooking binges during the hottest week of the year?!!?
Good Shabbos to all!
Keep cool, and as a commenter so rightly mentioned on an earlier post - take the time to check in on your elderly and infirm neighbors.
