.: Fearless

Things happen. Yes. Qualche amica a volte deve andare via, qualche altro è confuso. Qualcuno si ammala, qualcuno guarisce. Some friends leave, some friend is confused. Someone shivers in the snow, someone is cold in the sun. Qualcuno è ostile, qualcuno è amorevole. Somebody smiles, some other cries.
All we can do is to hold on. Be calm, resist, withstand. Quando tutto intorno si muove, vacilla… stare calmi.
And make a comfort pasta.

Some speck ham, some Asiago cheese. Watch how the cheese melt… taste it slowly. Remember how many good things are there.

“Vi mostrerò la paura in una manciata di polvere.”
“I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”

.: Happy Birthday Meat loaf

This is not completely new, but it has a filling !

Minced (pork and beef) meat (of course)
grated parmigiano reggiano cheese
grated bread
egg (1 for 100 gr of meat)
a bit of nutmeg
Some cheese for the filling: I use Asiago. Cut it in small pieces

Mix everything and create small loaves around each small pieace of Asiago cheese. Roll them in some grated bread and fry them in a pan with oil.

.: Nothing else matters

La ricetta la sapete già, yes you already know the recipe for the makhmar bread. It’s so simple that… nothing else matters.

let it grow 30 minutes… and then use a hot pan

but this time there’s something new: I put some cheese inside ! It’s an italian cheese called Asiago. L’Asiago è perfetto per fare dei piccoli tortelli di pane ripieni…

E quando li assaggerete, penserete: and nothing else matters.
