I Loved, I Lost, I Ate Spaghetti (or was it orzo?)
Today we met in my backyard to talk about Guilia Melucci's "I Loved, I Lost, I Ate Spaghetti." While we did not all love the book (the writer's lack of introspection made it seem rather fluffy/shallow to many of us), we did love the food that we prepared from recipes in the book! Some of the recipes had particularly good names, such as "Morning After Pumpkin Bread," which Cathy prepared -- it was DELICIOUS! Also served were lamb burgers, orzo salad with feta, lentil salad, romaine salad, and berry salad. Oh, and for dessert "Fuck You Cakes with Chocolate Bourbon Frosting." Wait, can I use the F-word on this blog?!?!
As always, we had a great discussion, with lots of personal stories and experiences thrown in. It was "foodies" vs. "non-foodies" at the table -- and even the definition of "foodie" was discussed. Some of us love to talk about food, eat food, plan our food, and read cookbooks and magazines like it's porn. Others, not so much. I think you can guess which camp I'm in. Mmm, what's for dinner?
