tuesday seems to be a popular day for grocery runs as i headed down to market basket
in the afternoon. i wanted to make a vodka pasta sauce but they didn't have any prosciutto. i ended up buying half a pound of the next best thing (based on the butcher's recommendation): some pancetta, which seemed more like bacon (less saltier too). and seeing that we're just a few days away from being in the thick of the holiday season, i got a carton of egg nog (beats making it on my own, and probably much safer since it's pasteurized).
nothing's more filling than pasta but then there are the side effects: a bloated feeling and increased gassiness. i ended up using all the pancetta. "smells good," remarked my roommate when he came home. he said pancetta was a better choice for cooking than prosciutto. i offered him some pasta but he was going out. when he came back a few hours later, he went directly to bed, another long day of work.
