Posts Tagged ‘Porchetta’

The Cat and The Mouse a little cabin fever, ventured to the neighborhood Italian cafe (new-ish owner, new-ish chef, new-ish menu).

The Cat tried one new chef’s additions.


Roasted red potatoes, sauteed kale. 

The porchetta was a chunk of pork belly (The Mouse not complaining 🙂 ). Only other time The Cat tried porchetta, it was in a sandwich and the meat was chopped with the crispy skin. Three decent meals out of the dish. 

The Mouse went with a tried and true standard.

Pasta Primavera

Zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, spinach, bell pepper, basil pesto on penne. Mmm, nom. Two decent servings out of this dish. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Enjoy. Eat well.
