Thanks go out to a reader

It was a dreadful day, and a painful as well.  

No I am not talking about the election results, though the election didn’t help.

But the UPS truck pulled up in the darkness. 

I was one of his last drops, it seems.

A kind reader, CP, sent some panchetta and taleggio from the wish list.

I’ll tell ya… it lifted my spirits. 


I am already planning around it.

Perhaps risotto with taleggio and pears … perhaps game birds, maybe pheasant, with wild rice and pancetta and some savory herbs.  I could caramelize some apples from the tree with onions and a drip of marsala ….

    Is it your teeth, Father? I’ll pray to St. Apollonia for you–I think she’s the patroness of teeth ailments or dentists or something.

  3. JR says:

    Our prayer are with you father! In the meantime I hope you enjoy these nice treats! Do share some photos with us!

    Father, you keep saying painful.

    All I can think of is, you know they have these “virtual” procedures now, right? :)

    This is pretty bad when I have to google to find out what the heck you just got!!
    It sounds like it could be the beginning of ONE FINE Italian dish. Or bird dish.

    Now I’m hungry. Guess I’ll get myself some formaggio and matto . (Sounds fancier when you say it in a foreign language, even if it is a hack job!)

    Nice present!
    Father you sound like some very savory dishes.

  9. Nick says:

    Here’s something else to lift your spirits, Father: The California Proposition 8 – which would define marriage as between a man and a woman – passed! :)
