Comfort Food

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.

    Kid you not. I’m sitting at the computer with a hunk of Pumpkin muffin trying to motivate towards revision. Must make tea.

    Ahhh, yes. What would so many of us do without the Terra Cotta store in Kittery? THE BEST balsamic vinegar in the world? Or in my world, anyways. And you can buy some in these artsy bottles and get refills when you’re done. Gotta love it.

    You are right about it being cold. We were up in Naples the other day and the wind blowing off the water was brutal. I’m looking forward to the warmth of summer.
