Meanwhile, coming back in, soaked through from the rough weather, I needed a serious dose of comfort. I had a bit of ground beef and pork left over from a burger party with Old Crazy Hair and his crew the night before, so I sauteed that up with some garlic and chile flake, added some red wine and crushed tomatoes, and made the quickest, easiest bolognese sauce of all time and tossed it with a mish-mosh of dried pasta--spaghetti and bucatini. As much as I love fresh pasta, this is why I keep dried pasta around. Showered with parmesan cheese, this is the quick pasta dish we turn to for some of that rich comfort. With leftover epi bread on the side, I was all set to continue my venture.
In other news, due to popular demand, we've added another "Spring, Where Are You?" Salon on Friday, June 3, and we have one seat open for the Salon of the same name and theme the night before on Thursday, June 2, as well as seats available towards the end of June for the Beer Food Salon on Saturday June 18 and the second Seafood Salon on Wednesday, June 22. Hope to see you soon!
