I’ve come a long way, baby!
3 years ago, Angelo (my former student) suspiciously ceased to be interested in me after my declaration that I did not know how to make tomato sauce. This was my wake-up call to buck-up and get with the program. If I was ever to find a partner, I’d have to have at least mastered the sauce. This summer, the first of my real independence without an ex hovering over me in the kitchen scanning for microscopic dog hairs, I have initiated my very own culinary education. Taking bits and pieces from friends and experimenting a bit on my own.
The sandwhich is officially my pièce de résistance
pasta with spinach and fresh ricotta cheese
Roasted pumpkin with garlic, parsley olive oil, honey, and lemon
Fried polenta… a virtual no-brainer for the culinary challenged
Pasta with zucchini and lemon, and parmesan cheese – this time it’s pasta for 2
Fried zucchini, with olive oil, garlic, white wine vinegar and fresh mint
Pasta with fresh mussels, I scored these while snorkeling on the Amalfi Coast just near my little private beach. A little taste of paradise for one.
Linguine integrale con broccoli (whole-wheat linguini with broccoli)
OK I cheated, this was from an IKEA mix… but all I need to do is cram some walnuts in there and make some icing with powdered sugar… mmmm
Deep fried organic zucchini flower stuffed with mozzarella
My love needs no introduction….
…all I need now is a sensitive, intellectually evolved - one of THESE (in a wife-beater)
