Your day was meh. If you’re anything like me, you come home to the place where you can shut out the rest of the world, put on what ever old thing makes you comfortable, maybe a little music and maybe a glass of wine or a beer. Okay, feeling a bit better you peruse the take-out menu folder and shuffle through it like you don’t have it memorized.
Pizza? no. Chinese? no. Okay, I have a suggestion for you. Hit the pantry. Go in and pull out all of those jars and cans that have been sitting on the shelf. Look through the fridge. Is there a box of pasta? Spaghetti? Good. Here’s the recipe — and I use that word loosely — that I make when I want honest to goodness, simple comfort food in a hurry.
There is something very old school romantic about a cloth covered table and low lights. Add to this a bottle of wine, delicious comfort food and someone you love, and voila, it becomes a special night. For some of us, we need to find that romantic dinner where and when we can. One of my favorite restaurant’s to unwind and catch up in is Puglia in Red Bank, NJ.
