    That's an interesting combination. I haven't had ramen noodles in ages. Sometimes I crave Diet Mountain Dew.

    And regarding Italian again...coincidentally making spaghetti & meatballs today. With buttered bread LOADED with garlic.

    Wanna laugh ?
    You'll never find spaghetti with meatballs in Italy, it's an Italo-American dish .
    Spaghetti, like every other tipe of pasta, are a "primo" (literally "first", as in "first dish"), while meatballs are a "secondo" ("second" dish), not some kind of sauce.
    The nearest thing to spaghetti with meatballs that you could find are tagliatelle al ragů....

    What?? That's blasphemy! No big soft meatballs seasoned with parmesan cheese and garlic, and dotted with raisins??

    And also my cat said that in a former life she cruised the canals of Venice in her little gondola while dining on spaghetti and meatballs.

    Well, I won't order that if I ever do visit Venice.

    If I ever get the financial means Italy is certainly on my list of must see places to visit. Right after Britain and New Zealand...maybe France too.

    Veal liver with white onions sounds good. I'll be over to open a Spaghetti & Meatballs restaurant.

    p.s.: Hard drinking? I'd better learn to like wine. Seldom imbibe any alcoholic beverage.

    There were a couple guys who were stewards on one of the submarines there. They had a bucket and very keen, hungry

    The reply was " Oh yeah, we'll cook that up a treat,man." So I swapped them for the beer

    Speaking of liver, we didn't usually do calve's liver back 'om . But.......chicken livers !!!!! There was a chicken processing facility near by called Birch Hill. They did chickens like Carter did pills. As a result, you could get fresh...very fresh chicken livers , a tender and delicate treat. Quickly sauteed with olive oil and butter and some diced onions , served with some
    Italian gravy (red sauce to most) and shells ( local pasta shape ). Those were good and made a fine meal. Get the pasta
    cooked before you do the chicken livers. It happens fast.

    Your cat lies.

    Venetians, like many Northern Italians, tend to use rice, not pasta, and tend not to use tomato-based sauces.


    My mother, both of whose parents were from Italy (her parents could walk to Switzerland and back in an afternoon) never had tomato-based sauces while growing up.

    Good trade, I suppose (beer for octopus).

    Love fried chicken livers. I only eat them on buttered bread with salt & pepper. Now you've got me craving some! I've also, three or four times, made pate; got lots of compliments on it too.

    I sorta figured that, when she once accidentally called her gondola a "pagoda." Maybe she got her past lives confused?

    A snack to hold us until dinner: the Wife made a tapenade of green and black olives, and sun dried tomatoes, enjoyed with a crisp flat bread.

    Cats never accidentally lie. Since humans are just too big to eat, cats just place us in the same category as cows: too big to eat, and not likely to eat them.

    Hah! Next you'll be telling me that "Mexican" food in the US is nothing you'd find in Mexico, or that "Chinese" food is not what you'd find in China!

    BTW, I just ate some delicious "Italian" leftovers. Chicken Marsala with a bit of cream.

    I just ate a healthy serving of chicken Alfredo pasta for dinner, then ate a whole plate of spaghetti. It's a good thing I have a high metabolic rate or I would be a fat woman by now!

    Well, tomatoes are not very well suited to mountain climates, hence their nearly absence from Alpine cuisine (there's a whole class of recipes, the so called "cucina bianca" - white cuisine, that forgoes tomato entirely).
    And yes, here in the North rice is the prime choice, followed by fresh pasta (soft wheat flour, water, sometimes eggs) ; dried pasta (spaghetti and the like, made from water and hard wheat flour, and then slowly dried) is from the South.

    PS: swampyankee, just for curiosity : Alpine Lombardy ? Sondrio, Varese, somewhere around there ?

    That sounds quite tasty. We did our weekly shopping yesterday, which included makings for the holiday weekend fare: baked beans, potato salad, and a pork butt that I'll smoke for several hours tomorrow.

    Run out to the Yorke Arms at Ramsgill up in Nidderdale.

    Plus it gives me chance to wear a tweed suit and country brogues.
    We had lunch from the Set Menu
    Starter - Seared Tuna, Squid & Chorizo with Tonka Bean Puffed Rice.

    Main - Calves Liver, Pigs Cheek & Collar Thyme & Orange Reduction.

    Half bottle of house red.

    The refrigerator is bare and only the freezer has square food in it. What square food should I expose to microwaves? Decisions, decisions. Excuse me while I skin this box.

    Some sort of dumplings and roast beef in a thick tasty sauce, and a yummy Greek salad. Had a couple of tall glasses of beer with it for an unbelievably low price. So far I'm liking Prague.
