Monday 9 February
We haven't had our favorite Penne alla Saffi since summer 2013, mainly because we used to make it with the first butt-end cut of Schad's ham from Krause's, and when they closed, we couldn't get it any more. We hope that the popcorn place that ousted Krause's decamps and stiffs their money-grubbing landlord for a year's revenue.
But in the meantime, Peru (via Kroger's) provided the cheap asparagus, and Gibb's provided a thick center piece of Schad's. We managed to rescue the asparagus from Dora's nibbles, and proceeded just as we used to.
Almost like old times.
