The Dish and John DeLucie

john delucie  is a wonderful person , talented chef and the proprietor of two of Manhattan's hottest restaurants, The Lion and Crown .... and he is a master of the twitter .... if you have been to my twitter site you will understand that i am so very bad at it.....  this world is now online 24/7 and tweeting is everywhere...

but there is something i know ..... his pasta is amazing ........ google CBS The Dish and get the recipe .... it is worth finding the San Marzano Whole peeled tomatoes to make this pasta dish.... you can find them online if your store does not carry them, but they make the difference.... because if a recipe has just a few ingredients ...make sure they are the best you can get the flavors shine thru

i took a walk with a dear friend on a beauty spring day ... and i have to remember  you can always learn something new every day if you just pay attention ...... there is a purpose for everything.... it just might not be quickly apparent.....and this was my pearl of wisdom for this beautiful spring day.....homemade wonton noodles for your soup are a delightful addition ... but in our modern times some shops use the prepackage tasteless variety and until today i did not know their purpose...  a gentleman who was also enjoying this beautiful spring day taught me that peacocks think they are tasty treats .... and he shared his booty of crispy noodles so we could have a monument with a peacock as well ... what a great day
