Expanding Your Lexicon


The baccalà we had was similar to the linked recipe, but served hot with the addition of some fresh whole green beans and some strips of sauteed red and green peppers to go with the canned red ones. So it was seasoned cod with red, white, and green vegetables. A properly NJ Italian dish for La festa dei sette pesci on Christmas Eve.
Baccalà comes as a yellowish slab of rock hard dried salted fish, and seems about as appealing as eating old boots. This dish was marvelous. The vultures can really eat, but they can cook just as well.

  2. Creative exaggeration on my part as comic emphasis.

    You want we should notice your west coast accent? Good Lord, are you all as nasally blocked as the Fwench? Come on everybody, squeeze your nose shut tight, raise your voice an octave, dim your brain and bobble your head around while you say “Like, I want a half-caf double mochalattechino with organic part skim, K?, and a double shot, sized mega-ultra-grande.”

    Oh, and all my inlaws are driving brand new Mercedes these days, because they opened their own business in a high need, high demand market. They’re doing far better than I am.
