I don't feel like cooking today, I just took a look at the fridge, and I think I'll throw some butter and pancetta (bacon Italian style) in a pan, fry them, then boil some rice, add it to the pan and top it with a decent amount of grated pecorino cheese. I never tried this before and I hope it will not go directly in the garbage...

I just had a monster calizone for lunch. And it was delicious. Surprised the heck out of me. The person I ate with suggested the place to me. If I eat anything tonight for dinner it will be something "light". By my standards.

I cooked some Cinnamon Banana Bread Muffins this afternoon (first time ever to make the muffins) and I've got to admit their delicious. And I normally hate banana bread, and normally just cook it for DH but finally I made one that I also like

Actually it was quite good!

And thank you for the "poutine", it's the first time I see this recipe!

luca, do you have any fresh veggies like peas or asparagus? your pancetta riso sounds good, but it needs something green.

lol pac. light for you? a small cinder block is light for you.

i just finished food shopping and picked up special store made hot italian sausage and brasciole. it's in a primarily italian neighborhood so i hope it's as good as the last time i shopped here. how can you go wrong with fatty pork, cheese, and herbs simmered in fresh, garden tomato sauce?

Although, I am not Jewish, I am having a mini Rosh Hashanah meal. I am going to be having apples and challah dipped in honey, Honey baked chicken, butternut squash, cooked carrots, and an apple kugel. It is going to be tasty.

Now now...

Yeah, light. I just saw a broccoli crown in the crisper, so may just have that for dinner... blanched and sautéed in some EVOO, with some fresh grated parm on top... maybe some diced bacon and red pepper flakes added as well... slivered almonds... light
