I also snagged some homemade pancetta. I usually buy a bigass roll of it and slice it as needed; however, this look so enticing I couldn't pass it by. It's meaty, with just enough fat to give whatever I use it for some serious flavor. It also looks to be much more highly seasoned than my regular brand. Don't know yet what fate awaits it but bucatini all'amatriciana is always a good start.
We had angel hair pasta tonight, with a simple tomato-basil sauce and I wrapped asparagus in proscuitto and roasted it for a naughty veggie treat. For wine, I finished the Luna and Jerry is working his way through a bottle of Mark West pinot noir. I'm not a wine geek by any stretch of the imagination, just sharing what we drank with the meal. Dessert: pink strawberry sugar wafers for me (in honor of Gene Hunt and his posse, of course) and a Cadbury egg for the J-man. The bairns got Chips Ahoy. I've been very lax this week in the baking of goods. But tomorrow is another day.
