Italian-American Week

Yes, again.  And of course.  Last night it was slow roasted chicken stuffed with garlic and shallots and served with some baby Yukon’s, asparagus (Hadley!), ramps, and roasted peppers preceded by salami from Parma and ricotta with thinly sliced rainbow beets, olive oil, and yuzu powder.

Tonight it’s Everett ravioli with a butter-onion-tomato sauce, etc.

Sometimes simple food is satisfying.

It’s satisfying when I’m not seeking solace from it, ironically.

I mean: It’s been a good few days.

Yesterday, for example, an email from the U.K. arrived showing interest in my novel.  Strong interest.  Passionate interest.  Followed by a day of writing about Indians for my book on the community.  Interspersed with several articles about Japan for Travel + Leisure, Gastronomica, and Travel + Leisure SE Asia.

Avanti!
