Polly Want a Cracker? No, Grazie… (Feb 12, 2013)Actually, Patrick and Marilyn’s parrot is Roscoe and he loved the Sicilian cauliflower pasta with pinenuts and currants that we made at their cooking class this year. But Roscoe missed out on the rest of the goodness: the Sicilian stuffed tomatoes, the savory Sicilian chicken dish, pollo aglassato, the green beans with mint, the radicchio/walnut/apple salad and the baked apples filled with amaretti and almonds and topped with mascarpone. All hands combined to prepare our feast and as I thanked everyone at the dinner for the great teamwork, Steve piped up ” I didn’t think we had a choice!” Lots of laughter as we enjoyed those steamy stuffed apples.
Grazie, Marilyn and Patrick for hosting me again this year – and thanks to all of the “team.”
“Everything was fabulous and delicious but the green beans were the best! You are terrific and I hope to get back to Umbria to see you one day.” Love, Joyce
