I'm such a sucker for the smell of food cooking
Or maybe is more appropriate

So I guess I better get some pasta going. I've never had so much going in such a small pot. The sub roll will be turned into garlic bread... but I do have some unused provolone now...
Your post reminded me of the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and the poor folks in Chewandswallow!

OMG, that's a real book
You probably can't get the scented stickers in the Kindle version...

DW and I both came home exhausted - me from hobbling around on crutches and she from volunteering at a homeless shelter all day - so we decided to go out for pasta tonight rather than make it ourselves. We have a nice little authentic trattoria in town. This was the penne with artichokes and scallops. Very tasty. They also make the best Limoncello I've ever had, in or out of Italy.

That looks tasty Steve!

That is lovely that your wife volunteers at a homeless shelter, so nice to hear of good people doing things like that

I decided on a beef curry stew. It's in the pressure cooker now, doing it's thing. I'll add some pea's at the end as I'm adding the slurry to thicken it.
