It’s cold in Maine today. The kind of cold that makes me hungry sitting here at the computer. I know I should keep writing, but I just want to nosh on a good chunk of comfort food to keep my small brain waves firing (Seriously, I need all the help I can get).
So, today’s lunch will be reheated homemade meatballs, with fresh marinara sauce, smothered with mozzarella cheese. So simple, yet so good.
Did you think I made all this? Well no, I’m writing too much lately for that kind of fun. But, I’d like to put a little plug in for our neighborhood pasta shop.
These folks have saved me from dinner disaster more times than I can count! They not only have homemade pasta but these amazing fried eggplant sandwiches with caramelized onions, fresh mozzarella cheese, and robust olive oil on a homemade baguette. Have I mentioned their sauces. Amazing.
So, if you haven’t swung by they have stores in Dover, New Hampshire (at the old mill); Kittery, Maine; and right here in South Portland. It’s simply delicious.
