Digital Difficulties

Computer and internet problems may be keeping your Head Trucker offline for a while, but to tide you all over, here are some interesting but completely unrelated vids that I found over the weekend.

1.  SNL cold open, 1/21/17:

2.  The Obamas' new home in D. C.:

3. Grandma chefs, who could be better?

I have a little bit of "nonna" in me...and I am so thankful that I watched and learned from my mother, my grandmother and my uncle who used to make gnocchi.

I made gnocchi this past Sunday for dinner at our house with some friends. I was a little apprehensive because I hadn't made them in a long time and there is no exact recipe: boil 3, 4, or 5 pounds of russet potatoes in their skin, peel, put through a ricer and add flour a little at a time, but not too much, until you get the right consistency.

Only a "nonna" or a "zio" knows exactly what that is. I was channeling Uncle Gregory. I also made a great tomato sauce with meatballs, sausage and roast pork.

This would not be a big deal in Connecticut or New York, but in the land where EVERYTHING is covered in red or green chili and comes with beans and tortillas, homemade gnocchi are a rare delicacy.

Frank next time let me know when you're making gnocchi and I'll be right over...
