We considered stopping at Andiamo, the Italian Bistro, but every time I eat out, I get sick. I have so many allergies and the foods I am allergic to are so ubiquitous that it is virtually impossible for me to eat anywhere but home and stay healthy--and I'm already sick--with a wretched, rotten cold.
So we drove home. On the way home, I told Keith what we were going to do--we were going to make pork marinara over polenta. I instructed him what to do and the minute we walked into the door I sliced the polenta and started it frying in olive oil, while he cut garlic and pork. I made from scratch very fast marinara with lots of wine and mushrooms and spinach and spices, We tossed in the pork and more mushrooms that had been sauteing in garlic, ladled it over the fried
polenta and presto, within 12 minutes we had a yummy Italian dinner with spicy sauce--and it was very good.
Food fast, but not "fast food!"
BB said as he hurriedly stuffed his face, "$28.00 a plate at Andiamo
for this, and extra for salad, wine and dessert." And then he drove away to get PB and his friends.
