HOLY CRAP my mouth is on fiyahhhhhh

So pretty mellow day today, that is until I got a Grab-n-Go wrap that added some unnecessary spice to my day. Ordered the Buffalo Chicken wrap with lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese dressing (which they had to go dig out from the back, sorry for slowing things down!) but did not see the pain and suffering that followed. First bite was lovely, had a little of everything in it, but on bite two I was already feeling the heat. Like a hungry fool I kept going only to realize a few more bites later that my mouth was on fire. Way too much buffalo sauce (punishment for making her find some blue cheese?) resulted in much pain and suffering. My lips were numb, my tongue was throbbing, and I felt the burn go all the way down my throat. NOT COOL. Sad thing is, I will still get this wrap in the future but I have learned my lesson: ask for minimal sauce as to avoid another disastrous experience.

Nellie got the Godfather (an Italian-combo of sorts) on wheat bread, looked good, didn't cause her any distress so I'd say it was a success and a definite "get again."

Order has been restored in the Universe, we celebrate the return of our old friends, real plates, cups, and utensils. Amen.

We've been trying to use up our flex passes the past couple days and have been frequenting the Grab-n-go quite a bit. Here's our take on our favorite two:

Get Agains:
-Chipotle Chicken and Bacon, The classic, everyone and their mother has gotten this constantly "featured" wrap. Be forewarned though, they really like to go heavy on the Chipotle sauce, so have something waiting to console your mouth. I highly recommend nuking this wrap a bit before eating. The hint of melty cheese is a good touch.

-Buffalo Chicken Wrap with Bleu Cheese, L&T, We're big fans of ordering off the menu these days and this wrap is our 'hidden' gem. It does have it's faults though, for some reason the bleu cheese is very chunky, like boulders of bleu cheese hidden sporadically throughout. Nothing you can't flick out though, which honestly is a little fun. Depending on who makes your wrap the buffalo sauce might end up on a completely different end than your chicken, but that's on a wrapper to wrapper basis. All in all though, this is our favorite.

Enjoy the snow, and try not to study tooooo much!

Our first Chaugie's.

As the semester dwindles down, and the opportunities to spend our unused points lessen, we decided it was about time for a date with Chuck and Augie. For all the non Storrers here, Chaugies is the restaurant on campus, and it is BALLERRRRRRR. Here's the lowdown:

Get Agains: (Fricken Everything)

Chicken Slider Trio, It's like the best of 2 worlds, a fusion of all things awesome. The adorable quality of sliders, with the finger lickin' delectableness of the 3 best kinds of chicken sandwich. Honestly, we couldn't ask for more from a meal. Here's the ranking of the 3:

1. Barbecue Chicken with Cajun Asian Slaw, Perfection. It's only fault was that it was small, but it can't help if it slides. The sweet tangy sauce on the crispy chicken, with the ryhmeing dynamic duo of flavor of the crispy slaw made for a dynamite bite. It made me feel like singing.

2. Pepper-Jack Ranch, An all around solid chicken sandwich. The chicken was crispier in this one which was appreciated, and honestly, I've yet to find something with pepperjack on it that I don't approve of. It paired nicely with the caesar salad we ate too. (More to come on that front later)

3. Buffalo Chicken with BlueCheese and Tomato, It was fine, Salamander wasn't to hot on the twang of the sauce, but for what it was it was worthy.

Caesar Salad with Crutons and Aciago Cheese, Now, anyone who has eaten my mother's caesar salad can attest to how heavenly it is(Hi Mom!), so I have very high standards. Chaugies version satisfied my needs. The right amount of creamy dressing, an abundance of cheese, and plenty of croutons were the reason why we ate the whole thing(It was pretty large mind you). I'll probs get it again next time.

Pesto-Alfredo Penne, It's like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny had a baby. Everything I love about the pasta world came together to make that dish. I wanted to bathe in it. The broccoli and tomato woven throughout added nice texture and that sauce was so creamy, my arteries might as well just shut the fuck down.

Bravo Chuck and Augie, well played sirs.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Disposable Disturbance of the day: The reason man evolved and invented the coffee mug was so that he would no longer have to scald his hand when he wanted to drink coffee. We have sacrificed this advancement with the paper cup, and double cupping is now a necessity. THAT'S TWICE AS MUCH CUP WASTE! ARHH!HHHH!HHH!!!

Dinner 12/2

Not much to report on today, but we must make up for lost time and blog away... Hit dinner early tonight so we didn't have too too much to choose from, but we found good stuff nonetheless.

Get Again:
-The burger was very well done tonight, topped with pickle slices (awesome), a little onion, and ketchup (no BBQ sauce, but this was a nice change) it was a lovely choice with a trusty old friend.
-The mexi-fries were the best they have ever been. Period.
-The fajita chicken pizza was a surprising hit! Very tasty :)
-Veggies were spot-on tonight, excellent selection and very fresh.
-The ice cream was a dream to scoop tonight, such a good decision going back for a little!
-Mike Zakko claims the "shark" wrap was out of this world amazing, but I'm not so sure... I'll take his word for it.

No real Mehhs or Skip Its tonight, we played it pretty safe.

After some research, it has been determined that the reason we've been subjected to plastic silverware and paper plates is because the dishwasher is broken and it will cost more than $10,000 to fix it, therefore dining services has to place a bid. Apparently we will be using the disposable dishware for quite a bit longer, with the expectation of it not being fixed until after break. Besides the disgusting fact that we are slaughtering the environment, it is insanely annoying to use these disposables. Henceforth from now until the day that order is reestablished, we will be posting an inconvenience of the day regarding the disposable situation. Today's is:
-Have you ever tried eating a salad with a plastic fork? It's a losing battle.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Northwest travels back to the Middle Ages!

So, let's just call a spade, a spade, we're lazy. We got a little sidetracked for the last ohh, 30 days or so. Anyhoo, Northwest is back and it's better than ever! The dining hall was transformed for a Middle Ages themed feast.

Paintings of castles, trees, and dragooooons adorned the windows, and torches hung from the walls. The main walkway was lined with flags of spirit, and the walls with posters with the Code of Knights. They even cleared out a whole section of tables and set up thrones for the King and Queen of ye ol' hall. We have to give a shout-out to the awesome staff, we could tell that some of the younger members were less than enthused to be wearing the silly outfits of Middle Ages, but you still did. Thanks, it made our week. Now on to the main attraction, the feast:

Get Again:

-Wild Boar(Pork) with Gravy, Moist and well seasoned with 5 star gravy, just spot on. I added some of the apple sauce that was offered, which was a lovely touch.

-Salisbury Steak, Can I get a YUM YUM?! Bravo, it was juicy, and crumbled in the best way possible. Nicely seasoned as well. Ya hear that Melody? Actual, Salisbury Steak.

-Those homemade chips from the grille, Delectable. Not too salty, only a hint of flavor. One fell in my Boar Gravy which was quite a lovely surprise of tasty.

-Apple and Barley Pilaf, We were being adventurous in the sake of research and were pleasantly surprised as to how scrum-didly-um-scious that was. We'd definitely get it again.


-Roasted Gourds, Not a fan of the turnips or parsnips. Ahh, it was so-so.

Skip It:

-Turkey Drumstick, Sunshine got it for the spirit of the middle ages, but besides the appeal of feeling like a barbarian, it really brought nothing to the table.

-Bread Pudding, It's currently sitting in my trash, just sayin'. Slimy.

-The Flat Rootbeer Soda, REALLY, thats the third flippin time the soda's been flat within a week! GROSS! Flat Sprite was bearable (Okay, I'll admit I enjoyed it), but Rootbeer NEEDS carbonation.

And now, we'd like to address how livid we are at the fact that we've been using, and wasting paper plates and plastic utensils for over 2 weeks now. Seriously? We understand that the washing machine broke, but does it really take more than 14 days to fix it? There appears to be no recycling going on either, which makes it truly unacceptable. Any positive effect ECO-Madness could have had, has been canceled out, AND THEN SOME, by this travesty against the planet. Good-day sir, I SAID GOOD-DAY!

Man, it's good to be back. Word to yo' motha'

Lights off in the dining hall is normally not a good sign. Tonight however was an exception. The cuisine crew was busy for several hours today transforming our quint little dining hall into a spooky feast of epic proportions. It was well worth the awkward two hours of it being closed. A haunted ambiance was created by the black-light lighting, skeletons hanging, periodical screaming, and of course our favorite the skeleton clad employee jumping out of a coffin. He was a little too excited to scare us however and popped out a bit far, toppling his coffin and sending him tumbling out. We justly hysterically laughed for a good 5 minutes. The whole crew gets an A+ for atmosphere and effort, it was beautifully done, and greatly appreciated! Bravo!

Get Again:
-The purple mashed potatoes with Gorgonzola. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. This was a lovely break from the normal 'from a mix' variety. It was creamy and smooth with appropriately sized chunks of REAL potato, shocking, we know. We really didn't detect any taste of Gorgonzola, but it was just perfectly done.
-Fried Fingers (Green Beans with green ranch dressing), Whoever came up with the idea of frying those buggers deserves a big ol' pat on the back. I think they must have breaded them before hand because they were crunchy and wonderful. The green ranch was a nice touch and provided a nice twangy flavor. Sally wasn't a fan.
-Pumpkin Cheesecake, Just straight up delicious. Cheesecake meets pumpkin pie. The exact brilliance you'd expect.

-The "Roadkill", In theory it was great, waffle fries, taco beef, cheese, beans, & bacon. But the execution was lacking. It was lukewarm and by that we mean it was cold. Not pleasant. This dish has great potential and we'd like to see Northwest have another go at it.

Skip It:
-The Witches Brew, Normally the mixed punches places make are tasty and fruity. This was just weird. They mixed cherry coke and iced tea. Why??
-The chipotle chicken wings, They were not in the least bit spicy, they were oddly sweet and otherwise lacking in flavor. Blahh.

Fantabulous dinner in da Northwest

So today was a pretty solid day, Lunch and Dinner were had in Northwest and both were  scrumdiddlyumptious!

Get Again:
-Pasta with portabella mushrooms and ham, creamy and so delicious. I didn't realize had much I had missed mushrooms until I had my first bite.
-The beef quesadilla was also really good, tasted authentic which was a nice surprise. Sadly there was no salsa/sour cream/guac to be found anywhere... maybe next time.
-The roasted chicken (for dinner) was another solid choice from the line, masterfully seasoned, it tasted like something my mom would make, for realsies.
-Aaaaand back with a vengeance: cheese ravioli with meat sauce!!! Such a crowd pleaser :)
-Nellie here, I was so excited to see the Swedish meatballs that I might have squealed in delight. The pasta underneath was smooth and cooked perfectly, the meatballs themselves juicy and delicious and then the gravy, oh the gravy. It was creamy and savory and reminded me why I became a food blogger. It tasted like the kind that my mom makes (Hi mom!) which come straight from the recipe book from Finland.
-The teriyaki chicken was perfect. A+. It was moist, flavorful, easy to cut, and was a great companion for my salad. Keep it coming.

Keeping in theme with all things fabulous, the Ice-Cream selection of last night was wonderful. They had my three favorites, Black Raspberry, Moose Tracks, and Cake Batter. Keep that coming and you'll keep your food bloggers happy Northwest!

We're back! 10/15

Hello blog-o-sphere! So sorry for our unannounced hiatus, we got busy. It happens. We'd like to give a shout out to our one follower, Ian, keep up the good work, we apologize for leaving you hanging.

Get Again:
-Spinach & Artichoke dip with Pita Chips, YUUUUUMMMMMMMMM. As a first time S & A dipper I was relieved to find out that this dip didn't taste like Spinach nor Artichoke. It was cheezy and delicious! We'd go as far as to say worth going up for seconds.

-Fried Chicken Strips, As a devout follower of the the Tyson Microwaveable strips I was ecstatic to see some plain, good ole' chicken strips in the Comfort Line. Crunchy, tender, dip-able, awesome.

-Applesauce Cake, I was skeptical because of the whole it being Vegan, but it was delicious! It was really moist and the frosting on it was creamy without being overwhelming.

-Ravioli with Squash, a highly debated item at our table. Sally and I were on one side just wanting straight up ravioli, cheese, sauce, tradition. The squash, sage, and lavender was just too experimental for our taste. Our new friend Jesse was loving it though, and found it worthy of going up for seconds. You be the judge.

Never again...

So tonight we decided to spice it up a little and order out... worst mistake of my entire time here at UConn. It's unanimous, Phoenix Chinese is the worst Chinese we have ever had. Panda Express and any other chain of Asian food ousts this stuff without a doubt. The sweet and sour chicken came as chicken with watery sauce separate, the chow mein came without the noodles, the beef teriyaki without the teriyaki, and the szechuan chicken was just stereotypical barf. So pissed we all spent $10 each on food that is barely edible. Dammit.

Friday, October 2, 2009


Coming out of last night's pathetic excuse of a dinner, my faith in Northwest's dining was at an all time low. In this vulnerable state one dish proceeded to blow my mind. The "Cinnamon Coffee Cake Bar" was the single best item of food I've had in my time at UConn. Shaped like mini-loafs of bread this was coffee cake at it's very finest. Immensely moist, while still holding it's shaped when dunked into my coffee. It had the perfect amount of cinnamony-brownsugary crumblies on top, not overwhelming, but not lacking. Honestly this little loaf deserves a standing ovation. Bravo.

Awesome Lunch with a side of Worst Dinner Ever. 10/1

So Sally had a very lovely Mexican fiesta for lunch today. Ate so much she was not even the slightest bit hungry until 6:30...success. While, Nellie absolutely loathed the dinner selection tonight.

Get Again:
-The mini chicken burritos. HEAVENNNNN! It is true that good things come in small packages. Throw a lil guac on that, good to go.
-Cranberry Apple Crisp (a la mode, as always). Just a word of advice, anything in the dining hall that is warm with the word "crisp" in it, deserves a spot on your plate. Absolute perfection (Nellie).
-Roasted Garlic Bread, simply delicious. Nothing garlicly about it but it was just really buttery and crunchy and gooood.
-The potatoes of the sausage and potatoes. Those little starchy buggers were splendid. Crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, they have my blessing.

-The fajita vegetales were not as exciting as one would think.
-Everything on Nellie's plate was a mehhh to her, espeially the Italian Encrusted Tender. Booo. Not entirely sure what kind of a meat it was, but if your seeking some protein, it'll do.

Skip It:
-Whatever random pasta they threw together and put in the comfort line. Maybe we went to the d-hall at the wrong time (7:10!) but the selection offered was horrendous. Making the preliminary lap around left me wondering if I wanted anything. The pasta was just lame. I tried adding the sausage of the potatoes with sausage (which was nothing special either) to spice it up, which was no help.
-Fat-free Raspberry Swirl Ice-cream, For the record the only reason I tried this god-awful flavor was because there was literally no other desserts available. It's been a long week of exams and cold winds and all I wanted was something tasty for dessert. That's all. I wasn't asking for much. Something. And all there was, was fat-free ice-cream. Imagine my disappointment. Yeah, don't do it. Each spoonful increased my resentment. Tisk, tisk, tiskkkk.

Happy October!
PS. We're loving the festive fall decorations that keep popping up!

Dinner 9/28

Dinner tonight, luckluster.

Get Again:
-Popcorn Shrimp, perfectly crunchy, and not too shrimpy in flavor (if that makes any sense). Nellie made a DIY caesar salad and threw those babies on top, DO ITTTTTTT
-Stuffing, Sal says it was a bit mushy but still good. It could have used some more crispiness but it's worth a scoop of.

-Grilled Apple and Ham Panini, this sandwich has potential to be awesome, but really, what's with the cinnamon raisin bread? That was a little too much to handle. The ham, apple, mustard, and cheese worked really well together, if only it was on wheat.
-Sweet Potatoes, they weren't as good as they normally are; they were left unfinished on the plate due to dryness.

A side-note: Where is the Red Velvet Cake?!? The website got our hopes up and then nothing. Not cool.

Sunday Brunch Spectacular! 9/27

I love breakfast, a LOT. I'd go as far as to say it's my favorite meal of the day. Brunch is pretty awesome too, so here's our first review paying homage to the food of the AM.

Get Again:
-Egg & Cheese on an English Muffin w/ Sausage, My prayers have been answered! The dining hall has finally recognized us breakfast sandwich lovers, especially those that venerate the brilliance that is the sausage, egg, and cheese. Okay, I know that I'm hyping this up a bit, but seriously, that was a wonderfully made breakfast sandwich.

-Buttermilk Pancake, Northwest's pancakes are all around solid. Throw some syrup and strawberries on that baby and you may overdose in awesome.

-Coffee, A heated topic amongst drinkers, whether or not the dining hall's coffee is 'good'. I for one am a fan of the Colombian blend with some splenda and Vanilla Rice Milk* in it. Also my roommate Morgan endorses the Vanilla Cappuccino from the Hot Chocolate Machine, take caution though because it's richness is not suited for the faint of taste.
*Okay, I know what you're thinking: Rice Milk? Don't judge it until you've tried it, Julia my veggie expert turned me on to it and now I won't drink coffee without it!

Skip it:
-Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, Hayley described it as tasty for the first two bites, then rather unpleasant after that.

Dinner 9/23

I'm sad to report dinner tonight was an overall letdown. My friend Julia served as a replacement for Sally who is currently taking a math test.

Get Again,
-Canadian BLT pizza, I'm always willing to try the funky pizza varieties they throw at us, and I'm rarely disappointed. The canadian bacon, lettuce, tomato, and seasonings complimented each-other very well. It has my endorsement.

-Cornbread, I like my cornbread nice and moist, so I wasn't the biggest fan. *
-Chicken Pontalba w/Bernaise, It was kind of tough and all around unexceptional.*

*Although both these items individually are Mehhs, I put the chicken on top of the cornbread and BOOM. Delicious.

-Stuffed Shells, Julia says it's nothing to rave over. Although better than most of the other options tonight it was so-so.

Skip it:
-Peas with Pearl Onions, They were an odd texture, hard and not juicey enough. Also they drowned them in pepper which was a weird flavor combination. I have to give the pearl onions credit for being adorable though! Julia displayed her brilliance and mixed them with tomato sauce which salvaged the veg.

-Blackened Tofu w/ Bordelaise, Julia's a vegan and a tofu expert so when she says skip it, skip it. It had a peanut paste pellet thing on top which was one of the most unappetizing looking things Northwest has ever churned out.

-Rainbow Sherbert, I was so excited to see one of my all time favorite ice-cream flavors in the freezer but it was a major let down. It's resistance to be scooped should have been a warning sign! Rather than smooth and lovely, it was chunky and weird. If you've got a choice I'd get something else. Go for Moosetracks, you won't be disappointed.

Good Luck on Midterms!

iViva la noche de Mexicana! Cena 9/22

Whoever decided to theme dinner tonight as Mexican deserves to be kissed.

Get Again:
-Steak Taco, Although there is a .01% of you successfully eating this like a taco without making a mess, there's a 99.99% chance you'll love it. I say embrace the sloppy and just deconstruct the taco then scoop it onto a tortilla chip. And if you've never tried a taco with guac on it, it's about time you do. The steak itself was well seasoned and delicious in it's own regard. iMe encanta!
-Grilled Ham, Swiss, and Pepper Sandwich, It was genius. The flavors melted together beautifully and there must be some catch to that bread, because it is too good. My compliments to the chef.
-Chocolate Eclair, Not only did they look pretty but those eclairs were damn good. Fluffy pastry, smooth creamy filling, and delectably gooey chocolate were/always are a winning combination.

-Roasted Potatoes, the skin was tough and although crispy it was hard to cut through. Not horrible, but not warranting reward.

Goodnight & Goodluck.

Triumphant Return to Northwest: Dinner 9/20

Get again:
-Mexican Burger, A well done burger topped with pepperjack, tortilla chips, and salsa, it was caaaalllliiieeennnttteeee. (Not in the spicy department but in the awesome category). The tortilla added a really lovely crunch and the pepperjack proved why it's my favorite cheese. Bravo Northwest, I'm a believer.
-XTreme Black Pepper Fries, I'm not sure what's so XTreme about
them, but they're still tasty. Nice thickness and crunch, but personally I would have appreciate more flavor. A solid fry though and worth a quarter o' yo' plate.
-SUNDAE BAR, I'm still in a good mood from the sundae I made for dessert. An icecream lovers paradise with your choice of oreo crumble, butterfinger bits, nuts, chocolate chips, nuts, rainbow sprinkles, hot fudge, whipped cream, and my personal favorite marciano cherries. Beautiful, simply beautiful.

Skip it:
-Apple Fritter, Sally tried it and believes it's not up to our high dessert standard.

Good Luck with your Monday!
PS Enjoy this oddity found:

Call off the searchparty! We've found the hipsters-

I'd(Nellie) like to officially welcome Sunshine as a guest judge for today's dose of culinary critique. We confess we didn't eat at Northwest, sue us, we couldn't resist the draw of testing out Whitney's locally grown cuisine. Although it had a limited selection, what it had was quite satisfying. What stole the show however was the atmosphere.

The diners of Whitney were unlike any UConn student's we've seen. The girls looked straight out of a thrift store, with effortless vintage style. You could taste the intelligent conversation in the air. At one table a guy nodded his head to the beat of the song his ducttaped headfones was playing as he spooned organic soup in his mouth, at another table a girl was munching on some carrots whilst reading a book that appeared to have had much use. The walls were adorned with heartwarming quotes about food and enviornment, the perfect snapshot into the style of dining that Whitney offers.

And now to the feature attraction, the food rating:

Get Agains:
-The Cucumber Water, perfectly brewed claims Sunshine. Although skeptical at first to a juiced vegetable this soda alternative maintained a perfect balance between bitter and sweet, simply refreshing.
-Organic Peanut Butter Cookies, Sunshine had five if that is any indication of their deliciousness. Perfectly chewy, and the peanut added a welcome crunch; throw some vanilla ice-cream on that baby and you're in heaven.

-Pork Fajita, The pork itself was tough and inspired several an awkward 'I can't bite through this peice of meat and it's making a bridge from the tortilla to my teeth' moment. The flavors were alright but it could of used some more peppers and onions. Come on UConn, we can handle the heat!
-Organic White Rice, the epitome of the Mehhh category. Wasn't exceptional, wasn't memorable, it's rice.

Skip it:
-Peaches, Oh dear lord I've never been harmed by a fruit before. These were guileful fruit, appearing to be ripe and wonderful but in actuality broke your teeth and violated your gums. Save yourself the trouble and grab a banana instead
-Celery, Nellie ate the most bizarre piece of celery in the history of the world. I don't know if this is even possible but it was like they soaked it in cinnamon water or something beforehand. It was puzzling and disturbing.

Don't let this seemingly innocent peach deceive you, it's out for blood.

We promise to return to Northwest tomorrow!!
Stay Classy.

**Cheated, went to South for Lunch 9/18

          Okay, so today we treated ourselves and went to South, sorry. Anywhoo while we were there we had lots of wonderful food, so much so, the walk back was a little rough.

Get Again:
-Kielbasa, Sally says the sauce was orgasmic. For those of you who have no idea what this is (Nellie for one) it's a polish sausage which they served in a tangy, savory sauce. Almost barbecuey but really sweet and delicious. Go back for seconds worthy.
-The Beef and Pepperjack Sandwich: AMAZING. It made me(Nellie) happy to be alive. Here's the lowdown it's Roast Beef, Pepperjack Cheese, and Tomato all melted together between crispy bread. A truly beautiful sandwich
-Southwest's Chicken Pizza, No sauce but it doesn't need it. It's labeled as "Spicy" and they added just the right amount of Jalepeno. The chefs down in South know their stuff.
-Apple Cobbler, if you ignored the sketchy display it tasted quite good. Sally recommends soft-serve vanilla but 'Apple Pie Ice-cream' certainly did the trick.
-Maine Blackbear Icecream, bless those souls down at the dairybar, they keep churning out new and awesome flavors of ice-cream insanity. This had little dark-chocolate cups filled with berry goo. The vanilla icecream had ribbons of berry sauce in it. Fabulous with the addition of a cookie.

-Their alfredo, we've determined that alfredo outside of a restaurant/home is just a no go.
-Cakey Chocolate Chip Nut Bar, save your calories for the better stuff. The cake part was flavorless and kind of a funky texture. The chocolatey nuts were a plus.

Skip it:

-PAD THAI, just don't. Save this savory meal for the pros. We had high hope for South's execution but they fell way short. It was awkwardly chunky and they used like a weird combo of chili-paste and other spices. 
-Potato Skin, it was fried and confusing.

Have a saucy weekend!

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Dinner 9/17

Get again:
-FRENCH ONION SOUP, add the cheese on the side and if you're brilliant like Nellie find the Italian bread from the pasta table and rip it up and throw it in!
-Apple Cobbler, a la mode if possible, as always.
-The cherry tomatoes are freakishly good here. Throw some on your plate, if just to appear health conscious.

-Alfredo Sauce on Linguine, kinda clumpy, but hey, it's cheese sauce people.

Skip it:
-'Italian Chicken' Soaked in marinara sauce it was nothing special

First Post!
