that looks delicious, kylie!!! i want to lick my screen.


we're going out to rent skis for my son for the season and to get him some snow pants and a winter jacket, then it's off to The Iron Horse Westwood NJ for dinner.

every table gets a plate of pickles and coleslaw to start, and then we always go for their fantastic french onion soup.

i almost always order the chattanooga chicken (grilled chicken breast on a baguette, topped with bbq sauce, canadian bacon, and melted mozzarella) with steak fries, what they call railroad tie fries.

my boy usually gets the pulled pork or burger sliders and sweet potato fries, and dw often gets the baked half chicken or the asian chicken salad.

it's scary how i know what we're going to order as creatures of habit.

That does look yummy Kylie :) I see you like Jamie Oliver's food. I have all his books. Also love his food but I prefer James Martin just a little more.

I'm making smoked pork spare ribs and homemade French onion bread and an assortment of homemade pickled and preserved veggies on the side.

We are several hours from supper, but I am thinking no-shell taco salads.

That looks wonderful. My favorite pasta dish....I love it with pancetta and/or bacon, but sausage seems to give it more depth in flavor overall. Must be the seasoning in sausage that bacon doesn't have. Yummy! Nice to see you didn't skimp on the meat either!

Very nice, Kylie. I love sausage with pasta. I have a dish that was posted here long ago with sausage, penne, peas and mascarpone.

If I get into the store today, tonight's dinner will be some kind of sea food. Maybe a clambake or maybe cioppino.

Snip, I sure do...love Jamie's food!

There has been the odd one we are not overly keen on, but generally we love his dishes

Thank you so much everyone

It was so lovely to have such a rich Italian dish...tasted better than some we have had out

It was very rich and creamy, the pancetta was quite salty as was the Italian sausage but all the flavours seemed to blend perfectly well!

Rock, we did use a fair amount of the meat...it was 3 Italian sausages, you take the meat out of the skin and 2 thick slices of pancetta YUM!
