Giveaway: Put a Raw Egg on It

giveaway - product review - recipe

When I visited Italy – long before T.A.D. – I discovered the secret to a really great pasta sauce: raw egg.

Davidson’s Safest Choice sent some coupons to try a dozen.  I found them at the local grocery store.

Since they’re pasteurized, I threw one in at the end of cooking a quick dinner…

Ah, 3-day-weekends.  We were able to make a quick getaway from the city to hang out with Joy/Corey in the woods!

I’m kinda obsessed with NJ Italian Food since we finished The Sopranos last year, so I was pumped for takeout from In Napoli (<—check out who’s eaten there)…

…takeout for my nieces and nephews, but everything was still great, straight outa foil containers – Chicken Fingers…

…Lobster Ravioli with Shrimp…

…and Garlic Bread.

I had a few bites of everything above, but mostly concentrated on this House Salad – it comes dressed already, which this LA girl wasn’t expecting.

Stellar view of the San Rocco fireworks from my Mom’s place!
