It’s been a busy week. Busy working, busy barbequing, busy celebrating a very happy 4th. I ran only once this week, but it was a decent speed workout at the track so I am glad to give my legs a break. With all the rustic, hearty steaks, wings, hot dogs all washed down by cold beer, I tried out more delicate flavors earlier in the week.

My latest favorite dish is pan-fried gnocchi, which I have had at several restaurants recently.
So I recreated the dish with a few different ingredients.

Pan-fried gnocchi with pancetta, portabello, onions, peas, and oregano with parmigiano-reggiano

After a rather rough and angry day at work, I couldn’t wait to get home and start cooking. Food is comforting, cooking is cathartic. I soon forgot that I was angry.

The whole meal took less than 45 minutes to make. My debut try with those little pillows was much easier than anticipated. In addition, I made my friend’s creation of a spinach bruschetta topped with pecorino romano. Delicious food, bountiful wine, and great company made my evening. I look forward to getting back on the road next week.
