unfortunately, i don't have pictures of this drunken concoction. after three lodge iced teas and countless beers, i was very hungry. mike and i went to hana and purchased spinach cheese tortellini. i did not have any tomato sauce, so we (mike) had to get inventive. he should probably be writing this post, because i have no idea what he put in the sauce besides: tomato juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes. in the end, it was more of a soup than a sauce. it was ridiculously spicy and ridiculously delicious.
(i am purposely not writing about the AMAZING butternut squash risotto croquettes. i'm in connecticut and do not have my camera cord!)
happy new year, everyone! brace yourselves for an epic holiday food post when i return.
