I made cacio e pepe for the first time. I didn’t have any pecorino on hand, so I used Parmesan. It was quite good, actually, but it begged for a hit of garlic IMO. Next time, I’ll crush a clove and add it to the olive oil and “pepe.”

I had a hotel room in the city today, so after checking in, I decided to stop by a Boston Market that was next door to try their prime rib special.

The prime rib wasn't ready to be served, so I took out the quarter chicken and 4 rib dinner special.

When I got back to the room and sat down to eat, I was surprised to see what I bought.

It was a single rib and a few shreds from another rib, and a tiny piece of chicken breast that was dry and hard. I tried to pull off the wing as a going concern, but it sort of snapped off in half. It was so so overcooked it broke in the middle of the bones.

Now, I normally don't complain about badly served food, especially fast food, but this was too much. I marched right back to the Boston Market and demanded a refund.

When the manager asked me for the receipt, which I forgot to bring, he just shrugged and said that he'd refund the money since he remembered me buying it just minutes before. It's like he knew that I'd be back considering the plate of crap that he himself served me.

They will be getting a choice review fro me tomorrow.

Anyway, I walked down to a Greek restaurant nearby and got pork souvlaki and "Greek" fries (round, sliced, fried potatoes with lemon, oregano, and grated cheese).

It was very good, especially their tastsiki.

Don't forget to mention the stupid manager. Why would you need a receipt?? Duh...

I haven't eaten anything from Boston Market in 20 years -- at least. There is a reason for that. You would have done better with a frozen dinner in the hotel room microwave oven.

Oh, I love cacio e pepe. So simple, and yet so satisfying. And yes, you can't have too much garlic in that dish, IMHO. When you think you have used too much garlic, add a little bit more.

Well, that's how I roll.

Was it early for dinner? You may have gotten a piece of chicken that had been prepared for lunch and never sold..sitting in a warmer for hours..

So, for supper I'm putting that pan of Three Cheese Lasagne into the hot box
(I didn't make it the other night after all)
and a loaf of No Knead Roasted Garlic Clove Bread
Can't Wait!!!

I think I put just a touch too much sauce in the Lasagne, but this was very tasty. The three cheeses were the regular cast of characters, Parm-Ricotta-Mozz ...
The bread, I'm not understanding what happened here: I put in 8 large cloves of Roasted Garlic, and I found maybe two of them through that entire loaf.
It wasn't a very large loaf, we got about 6 1 inch slices and had 2 leftover it was very good.
I'm trying to remember why I stopped making my own bread
