bread dumplings didn't come to my mind, but that's what it is

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I have an Italian pot roast (stracotto) simmering - it smells wonderful. I chopped up some extra celery and carrot sticks from New Year's Eve and parsnip that was hanging around in the fridge to give it some more flavor.

The plan is to make rotini to go with it. I'm thinking about trying to make polenta for the first time but I'm concerned about it not working out. I have finely ground masa flour and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Will that work?

Maybe I'll make both

Roast pork sandwich with a couple thin slices of onion and a Virgin Mary to wash it down.

We had my potato, ham and cheese soup tonight. This was very good "comfort food" on a very bitterly cold night. Tomorrow will be colder, and there is plenty of this left over.

With love,

We had the spicy octopus on salad with feta and a vinaigrette dressing. The left over oyster stew with it and some sourdough bread on the side.

Bistec de Higado, onions, yellow rice, black beans and fried plantains. Comfort food.

It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.
