Comforts in a Storm
With the impending blizzard I thought I would put together some food for comfort. The first dish is a favorite, "potato gnocchi". This pasta is made with wheat flour and potato. It's first gently boiled, and when it floats to the top its removed and drained. In a skillet some butter is melted along with olive oil. Then some sage is added along with onion, salt and crushed red pepper. The gnocchi is added and allowed to cook until the edges begin to brown. Then fresh parsley is added. You can grate some pecorino on top, then serve.
Chicken Soup. It does warm those places a steak can't reach. I make enough for at least 3 meals, and by the last one it's perfect.
