Today was a beautiful and optimistic Saturday morning on Long Island. 7 am, it was a crisp 55 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. As my uncaffeinated limbs and sleep deprived eyes arrived at the fridge and peered inside, I found nothing desirable but a splash of milk to pour into my coffee that was taking way too long to stream out of our fancy schmancy Keurig. No eggs, one cheese, on slice of old bread and some grilled fish from 5 days ago. This was a problem…a serious problem that could only be solved by one thing…one word…one place. PIE. BRIERMERE. RIVERHEAD.
It’s only Tuesday and damn it’s been a long week so far.
Everything that could go wrong has and I think it’s time for some comfort food and a nice nap.
Today I decided to make a nice Tagliatelle. These noodles are long, flat ribbons similar to fettuccine and is a nice egg pasta, so it’s great with your favorite sauce, butter or even in a nice chicken soup.
Today I made Tagliatelle with a fresh marinara sauce.
Plain and simple, but sometimes it’s the simple pleasures that are the most decadent.
Wanna carbo load with me…then read on!
We are getting close to the big day.
Here is a classic recipe for Irish Soda Bread that I know you will LOVE!
If you don’t…just drink 3 Guinness and taste it again. I think you’l change your mind.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and God Bless!
