Channeling Iden

February 7, 2008

That’s right, I said it. I decided to re-cook a play-by-play of the one meal I made/ate with my former house-mate Iden at least once a week last year. This is especially important considering that he is he makes up the third leg of my triumvirate of regular readers, I know there are others… but Triumvirate is such a great word.

The other day I started channeling Iden when I remembered how much better I ate last year. Seriously – how did we afford all that great stuff? Iden would come home from the Italian market with bags full of olives, prosciutto, pecorino, white balsamic…. And between the three of us (Iden Terence and Myself) it played out like this –

Iden – Low Fat High Protein
Terence – vaguely Asian casseroles
Me – Pretentious but falls drastically short of its expectations

I digress, so anyways I got bored and decided to cook.
Rigatoni – The beef of the pastas.
Pecorino Romano
Pecorino – Its like eating salt with a hint of cheese. Iden, you got me.
This is a sauce.
And the sauce. This IS a sauce. Canned tomatoes with a bit of tomato paste, garlic, onions, bell pepper, garlic chicken sausage, artichoke hearts and a bunch of random spices.
Pasta meets sauce: When two become one.
Low fat high protein
And finally – La presentation
For prosperities sake: mixed spring greens with a dijon balsamic dressing, dried cherries, and shaved parmigiana.

Iden, hopefully this has been a sufficient shout out, it was delicious – I miss you, can’t wait to see you in a few weeks.

P.S. Tuba prog is the weekend you are coming home – just wait until you see 410 TUBA.



  1. them is some good eating, but actually, that’s not really a sauce.

    still, this post made me excited and nostalgic anyway.

  2. I have never seen that food before. Ever.
