Eggs here are 2.89 per doz. so lets go about 25 cents each.

Don't make me do any math. I will have to take my socks off if we go over 10.
I asked the OP how many ml in his half a glass. He wrote 50 ml.

You are right on the eggs. I guess I was thinking of organic eggs.

That is a little glass. It's all good. Sorry to hijack, everybody.

When the OP wrote 1/2 glass I figured he meant half a glass of vodka, which here in the states one glass of vodka is served in a "rock" glass (no relation I don't think ) and is usually a couple ounces at most on the rocks (ice). Not like ordering a glass of wine at what, 5-6 oz?
But I'm not sure if those amounts hold true in Rome.

Yeah, well, we're all right. Or, wrong. It doesn't matter. Let's just drink the vodka and have a good time....

Here in Italy, booze price is cheaper than in Canada!

A bottle of Smirnoff Absolute Vodka costs about 10 for 750ml.

1,3 cent for a milliliter, and so 0,67 for 50ml...

Also in Italy, it's legal to homemade booze, but it's not legal to sell it.

I've made beer a lot of times at home!

Never selled, always drunk...

PS: is "I've made" correct? Or I have to say "I maked"?

"I've made" is correct.
"Always drunk" probably not. Always drunk means always intoxicated. I think you meant "Never sold, always drank", in which case you might want to say, never sold it, always drank it myself, but I often leave off words when I am typing.
Unless of course you meant you were always drunk

recipe, salmon, tomatos, vodka

Pennette alla vodka Hi all guys. The second receipe is dedicated to CraigC! Pennette alla vodka 4 persons Smoked salmon 100 gr [IMG]http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_v945UJJ2npQ/TGVDdsVCZZI/AAAAAAAAA1M/wR56ZH-e1AI/s1600/DSCN2404.JPG[/IMG] Pennette 400 gr [IMG]https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT6SJFA_kZUtal1woNG1Uvek_-LxiClHX-Q2Rs_O5y7NnTb2ts6UQ[/IMG] Butter 30 gr Shallot 1 (or a medium onion) Pure Vodka 1/2 glass Ciliegino tomatoes 100 gr [IMG]http://www.prodotti-tipici-siciliani.it/images/pomodoro_ciliegino.jpg[/IMG] Tomato paste (concentrated) 1 spoon Fresh cream 200gr [IMG]https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS5c7IX6oI5_MCleqic4qU1EAxacTdjomWxjugnlaAJ18jGzGLYXA[/IMG] chive 1 Chop the shallot, the cilieginos (each in 4 pieces) and the smoked salmon (little pieces) 2 Put butter in a large pan, medium heat: when butter is liquid, add the shallot and wait until it becomes a little bit grilled. I don't know how translate my idea. But this have to be the shallot color (also a little it more "dark"): [IMG]http://zuuly.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/soffritto-di-cipolla.jpg[/IMG] Do not totally grill the shallot, or its flavour will overcome the salmon one! 3 Medium high heat now: put the vodka into the pan ant wait until it will be totally evaporated. Try to buy a good pure Vodka, you'lll taste the difference... 4 Medium heat: put the cilieginos and the smoked salmon into the pan, adn let's cook it for 5 minutes, until salmon changes its color. 5 Now put concentrate and fresh cream into the pan, and let them cook for 2 minutes. 6 Turn off the flame, add chive. The sauce is done, our mission is accomplished guys! Now you have to add this sauce to 400gr of "pennette", strictly cooked "al dente". This will be the result [IMG]http://vadoatavola.it/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Pennette-alla-vodka_opt-400x225.jpg[/IMG] Enjoy... PS: by the way, you should use a wook spoon to cook this receipe, to move ingredients in the pan, so that the same ingredient will have the same "piont of cooking" (I mean the same color... How can I explain this concept? Anyone understand my terrible language?) PPS: I apologize for the pictures, they are not "home made", but I swear I'll post them ASAP! 3 stars 1 reviews
