So Thursday morning I woke up and finished cleaning from the night before, and then got cooking immediately when I got home b/c I was having Alex and Mathilde over for a reunion from the carib. As you know, mathilde is IMPOSSIBLE to cook for bc she eats nothing.
The menu I settled on:
Penne alla vodka with Pancetta – which you know so well
Simple salad with heirloom tomatoes and fried mozza (see previous post)
And lots of delicious italian hors d’oeuvres: green olives (yum – so into these now), marinated mushrooms, pecorino cheese, etc.
Very simple – incredibly fast and easy – and really good! Mathilde ate everything (even though she did tell me once she was done that she noticed the onions 🙂 ).
