I was not in a good mood. The day was lousy. It was dreary and just the kind of day you wanted to stay in bed. I worked a bit. Then I worked on dinner. I found a recipe in one of Lidia’s cookbooks for a baked mushroom pastichio with fontina. I added crab meat and it was fantastic with a little roasted asparagus on the side and a bottle of barolo. Who needs to go out for dinner when we can eat that?
Matt gave me the Rosetta Stone program to learn Italian. One day my dream will come true and I will go to Italy and just eat and drink wine while I gaze at olive trees and fields of grapes. Maybe I’ll never come back. Soon. Very soon. Italy. We’re coming.
