he's gazing into my soul. And @Simo your pasta dish sounds sooo good...i got subway

Aw, thanks! Ya make me blush. It's an Italian Dish, a version of 'Puttanesca', you can use many pasta shapes as a base. I like Penne, myself, but say, Penne alla Puttanesca literally means, "pasta of the Whore' : based on countryside prostitutes in (old) Italy, who would entertain guests and also serve food from vegetables they grew in their nearby gardens. There's a joke about what it really means: One of them is, "You just put everything in!" Sometimes, I add shallots, if I have them, but you can vary it. Often people use a pinch of anchovies. Myself, I find it has enough salt/flavor as it is. It's not at all a heavy red sauce; the tomatoes are just one more thing, in it; the olive oil and spices pretty much carry the flavors, so it's pretty light. Good summer pasta. And if you lack some of the stuff, it still works.

You are such a foodie. Seriously, I just like hearing what you're having for dinner.

Kind of, yeah! I tend to favor basic, fresh ingredients (mostly, but not here), and not get too crazy. I mean,things can get a bit pompous. But eating is a pleasure. Here and again, I will invent a simple dish, and pretend I'm on Iron Chef!

Once, I had this idea:

I fooled around with a reduction, until the balance was right: Lime juice, fennel, honey (to cut the acidity). And drizzled that on the bottom of a plate. On top, I served large sea scallops, pan seared at a high heat in olive oil, with a dash of high proof potato vodka to glaze them. And mmmmmmmmmm, mmmmm. Take that, Gordon Ramsey!

Thanks, Mr. Dragon. Got home, and having some Vinho Verde, a very mild, almost fizzy wine from Portugal, very low alcohol, almost like beer. And some pasta (farfalle) with artichoke hearts, black olives, capers, tomatoes, and olive oil (basil, red pepper). I may soon draw a cool bath, and relax some...

That um, sure beats my tea. XD

I'd love too! I really like having company, and cooking. Comes from the Italian side of my family, I think, my mom, I guess? You know, share what you have, make your guests feel good. Live a little.

Over in the "Adult Furs" thread, we're discussing raiding your food or having you cook for a party of us.;)
 

Liam The Red

"Dad" Fox
Aw! Well, any furs come to the con here, I'll happily cook :p
Be careful with an open invitation like that.:D With the way your food sounds and your friendly invitation, you could be overrun with hungry furries.:p

So we get free food and someone to do the dishes!? Awesome! Party at Simo's place!!! :D
I would think we might have to pitch in on ingredients, and I volunteered you for trash duty, but . . .yeah!

You volunteered me for work!? Your dad fox title is accurate, you remind me of mine. :rolleyes:. I always get stuck with trash duty for some strange reason.
And . . .that's why I'm the Dad Fox . . .:)

Ooooh, its fun. Plus, you play as a team, like one is the medic, one is the dispatcher, the researcher, and scientist, all with their special abilities, working together to stop a global Pandemic. Its a game that really brings folks together. It's like team Risk, but better :)

We will definitely have to try it sometime, if we ever have a chance to.:D

I want to be the medic under the condition that I get to yell CLEAR when I save someone.

It's fun! There's other team based games. Robinson Crusoe is my favorite, where you try to survive on an island, and you have Friday, and a dog...it's hard! You mainly die, but geez, the rule set is so compelling.

I haven't had enough friends nearby to play those kinds of games in a while. (No, they didn't run away, us old people move sometimes.) It sounds like fun.

Would love a boardgame night sometime! Perhaps when we meet up for the con.
