A Trader Giotto's Dinner


To say I don't cook much would be something of an understatement. But I do have my moments. One of my dishes (maybe my only) is a sausage pappardelle from Trader Joe's.





The whole meal, including wine, is just eight items, so it's perfect for the express checkout. I think it's just eight items. Wait. Six...seven...eight—ok we're good. Whew!

I remove the casing from the sausages and fry them up while the onions and peppers sauté in the other pan.


Then I dump the meat and veggies into the sauce, and let that go for at least an hour.



Then, viola! A Trader Giotto's feast! That wasn't so difficult.



Or was it? And I wonder why I don't cook very much.


Seven Hills

Take your coat off and stay a while.


You'll only have to climb up one hill to get to Seven Hills. Well, maybe more, depending on where you're coming from. And I recommend climbing, as parking in this neighborhood is scarce. The Alioto family's new restaurant is quite cozy and warm--very homey. Maybe it's the soft lighting, or the wainscoting, or maybe it's the fact I just wanted to say wainscoting.


Really yummy with a slight kick. This was the half order. Glad it wasn't Grandpa Munster's Sausage, that's for sure.
