I’m slowly trying to get caught up on cataloging what I ate in January, and this is the first of what I hope will be quite a few posts over the next few days.
One of my Godsends in January was already prepared (and easy-to-prepare) food. There’s nothing more convenient than getting the husband to stop at the North Market on the way home for some pho or something else yummy. Then, we made this discovery:
If you happen to see Sugo di Carne on display at Pastaria, don’t hesitate to pick up as much as you can, as quickly as you can, as it was delicious, comforting, and a breeze to make into a dinner by mixing it with some bowtie noodles. They rotate their selections, and it’s been showing up once or twice biweekly. Well worth every penny, so much so, that we had them make a special order for us, and froze the leftovers for a later date.
ETA: I’m taking back my recommendation for the Sugo di Carne at Pastaria – they recently changed chefs, and the new version made with pork and lardons is not appetizing to my palate at all. 2/11/07
