If you are reading, Wayne, here's the new stove (not new anymore), but I've
outgrown it already. You can see all the little circles are RED.

Spaghetti (Del Cecco #12)
Red Sauce (one with meat, one without)
Broccoli Rabe (Patsy's Restaurant recipe)
Baby Portabellas
Parmesian Regg (slivers)

Marchesi di Barolo - Barbara d'Alba 2005 (Piedmont) - would buy again --
quite in-expensive,but good.

I forgot to mention that also in honor of Columbus Day, I am finishing up
watching tonight Martin Scorsese's "My Voyage to Italy"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0173772/

an 8.2 rating, 2 hrs. 46 minutes, a documentary about the Italian cinema.

As Smitty (JL) says, what more could one want,
Food, Art, Film, and did he say wine? Probably.

After that meal, we have remaining spaghetti, sauce and rabe, so

Tonight DH will probably have a bit of the left-over spaghetti and
meat-sauce and I will graze on the rabe and finish it up.

I do get myself into jams; I have on the counter now a box of tomatoes, box
of mangos and some avocados. I guess I'll be having a tomato with every
meal.

What to do! What to do!

Italian food is doubless more interesting than Welsh or English
but I am waiting to celebrate Richard Americk's Day :-)

According to Chamber's Dictionary, America is named for him,
not that Vespucci bum!

I thought that was one of the worst-produced specials on PBS in a long
time. I just couldn't get interested, even though I love watching
history specials. Speaking of which, the special on the History
channel was really excellent.

I taped the Columbus one on PBS, but turned off the recorder after
about the first twenty minutes - it just never got any better.

I can't resist sharing the results of my recent research on
Americk since I wanted to find the dates for his life. I wasn't
totally successful but it might be 1445-1503. Another thing that
turned up is that Americk's major investment in Cabots's voyages
might have been an early example of insider trading in that he
knew what Cabot would find. Apparently, he did a considerable
amount of business in the salted cod brought by Portuguese
fishermen from the Grand Banks and they might have told him
about Newfoundland, which almost certainly they discovered
before Cabot.

Coming from a diffrent perspective: I enjoyed a poem about the Cabots:

I come from the City of Boston,
The home of the bean and the cod;
Where Lowells speak only to Cabots,
And Cabots speak only to God.

Doing genealogy I came across this poem; DH's direct ancestor married a
Cabot.
