If last week was all about health, then this week’s all about comfort. Many of you saw more snow last week than you’ve probably seen in a very long time. That, and the fact that Donald Trump is still running for president is enough to make anyone hungry for the buttery comfort of carbonara.
Aside from the requisite creamy pasta dish, I’ve included several hefty winter soups: a baked potato soup dressed with bacon and sour cream, a pozole verde cooked with enough chiles to warm you from the inside out, and an Italian meatball soup that is simple enough to make a weeknight appearance.
Of course we couldn’t let a week go by without some chocolate and a cocktail. On that note, The Professor brought home some celery bitters this week which I tried in a gin and tonic (thumbs up) any other ideas?
Sending you warm thoughts!
