Bought real espresso coffee from Lemonjellos yesterday.
Came home and experimented with it. I was making shots of espresso. First was was satisfyingly strong but I wondered if I could use less coffee. I used 1 teaspoon on the second shot. Mmmm. Pretty weak. How about 2 teaspoons? Better. Hey why is my hand shaking. Oh, yeah. It’s probably not a good idea to sit here and drink shot after shot of espresso. Silly me.
Continuing on my Italian cooking adventure, I made Noodles Alfredo last night.
I bought prosciutto to put in it and broke down and ate it with Eileen.
Not sure I’m exactly a vegetarian these days because I keep eating meat. Heh. I used the excellent imported hard italian cheese in the Noodles Alfredo. I thought it was pretty good. I served it with fresh mozarella (you know the soft kind that comes in water), fresh tomatoes, olive oil and basil from Steve’s garden.
I stared the day making strawberry compote from fresh strawberries. Made pancakes and served them with the strawberry compote. Not bad.
Ended the day watching Eileen eat the rest of the compote over ice cream.
Good food day.
