About as authentically Italian as Mama Celeste but still delicious. Antipasto salad. Basically just a delivery vehicle for cheese, cured meats, olives and pickled peppers -- an Italian sub without a roll given a "healthy" appearance by incidental crisps of crunchy lettuce.
I love any dish that doesn't need a strict recipe. With a little of this and some of that (what else could I do with that last kohlrabi?) we've got a quick dinner James is happy to eat "any night of the week."
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
