That sounds like a very robotic pasta dish (carbonara with an android twist?).

I guess great minds think alike. We had Spaghetti alla Carbonara on the deck tonight. Ours wasn't 100% authentic, either, since I subbed bacon for the pancetta.

I have a good-sized chicken roasting and about to come out. Stuffed it lightly, then did an extra casserole of stuffing. We'll have wax beans, green beans with mushrooms, and heart-clogging gravy. Living dangerously tonight.

Thank you, all of the ingredients were chosen to have umami flavor of to balance it out. It was an experiment that worked. Yes it was really good.

I have some chicken getting cooked in the pressure cooker. I'm going to make a Chicken Divan casserole out of it. Side salad.

Beautiful looking dinners tonight...

We had thick pan fried loin lamb chops seasoned with Adobo, Fettuccine in Mushroom Sauce (frozen Trader Joe item..excellent) and spinach salad.

I spent this grey and gloomy (again) day
making another Six Dozen Cheese Raviolis
(they freeze nicely for later in the Winter along with
some homemade marinara I 'put up' too)

with the scrapes, I made Tagliatelle
and a 'condimento' or a sauce
from some leftover Turkey breast, diced
Zucchini, Sweet red bell peppers, Onions, Garlic, White wine,
Olive oil and Butter, some S&P and dried Orgegano ...
when adding the cooked pasta to the 'sauce',
reserved pasta water helps
to pull everything together nicely

wow, kgirl. tutti a tavola a mangiare!

andy, a pickle is a veggie, right?


my first dinner tonight was at home. dw made a delicious cheese and onion turkey meatloaf (i don't know how she makes something really boring taste so good) with a side of yukon gold mash. also really delicious.

my second dinner tonight is courtesy of cbs sports (we have the thurs. night games every week).

crudite and ranch dressing, prosciutto and a cheese assortment with crackers, a sliced fruit assortment, and cookies and a dove bar.

i will be doubling as the firestone blimp by the end 9f the season.
