Those penne again…

Eastside Road, August 10, 2015—
YES: PENNE; RED SAUCE. Stick with the staples; they won't let you down. It seemed to me the sauce was particularly deep tonight — rich, I called it; Cook said the word implies fat when used to describe food, but I demur: to me it connotes depth and complexity. She's probably right; my idiosyncratic use of language confuses even myself. In any case, a fine meal, followed by a green salad dressed tonight with cheap "Balsamic" vinegar — gotta decant some of my own tomorrow — and yet another melon too early in the season, bought because, well, hope springs eternal in the human breast.
