The SC got us take out from the Greek restaurant. They do killer big Gyro's, and I ate mine without the pita. Deeeeeeelish!!!

PPO, I'm trying to figure out that Pasta Carbonora, but it's sure pretty.

The sauce is real simple. 3 very fresh egg yolks, 1 oz freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano and black pepper mixed up. Add the cooked and drained pasta to the eggs while stirring then add the Speck (Instead of bacon I used Italian Speck) with some of the rendered fat. And serve.

Your use of speck is a twist. Have you tried this dish with guanciale or pancetta?

Pancetta yes, Guanciale no I was going to order some for the video but just shipping was $30. It was kind of hard to justify. So I went with what I had from a large order that I had done with igourmet.

Joey, you have too much fun playing with your food. I think it's a very nice pizza, however.

Without the pita? Oh Kayelle, that would be such a P.I.T.A. to me. Good on you for sticking with this low carb eating, though. You are a stronger woman than I am.

Dinner ended up being baked cod with lemon and capers, roasted cauliflower and broccoli, mashed roasted butternut squash, and lightly blanched asparagus. Call it an early Valentine's dinner, 'cuz I'm not cooking like this again tomorrow!

I use either pancetta or bacon but it's usually a dish for one as SO doesn't care for it.

Take out pizza. And I wasn't too fond of it. The sauce was too sweet. It wasn't from Santarpios. The only pizza I really like. I always get it with mushrooms. Pirate has his half with pepperoni.

Well, I didn't pay for it, so I just kept my mouth shut and ate one piece.
