    Also on today’s Good News Thread... I want to personally thank all of you that work in health care, grocery stores etc. your the real MVP’S!! Next time if you happened to be in Vegas when I am, let me buy you a drink ( not even using a drink ticket. Lol) ...... I like Dave, tend to get them faster than I use them. My record was 12..... I was giving them out like Oprah gave out cars. YOU get a ticket, YOU get a ticket... and the bartenders at chandelier just let me have my “moment”. Hahaha

    Uno has a great phone app that Jim and I play regularly. We used to partner but always lost big. Now we just play against each other. Don't even have to sit up! LOL And it's quarantine approved cuz you don't touch anything but your own phone.

    I just downloaded and told a few friends to do the same. Can you start games with people or is it just random players?

    Either or. If you have friends, you can invite them. There is a search function.

    I'm making pasta this evening. Red sauce, which always gets grief in LV restaurant reviews.

    The regional influence of Calabria. Or Calabrian. Or Calabrese. You get the point. More Southern than Northern, and my preference. Calabrese or Sicilian. Cucina? Yes, I'm just being more specific.

    I use both mild and hot sausage from Grazinao Brothers Grocery Store. Much more mild, and just a touch of hot.

    Mama Francesca oilo extra vergine vi oliva. You can just call that olive oil.

    My sauce, and it is my sauce, is modeled after Mama Rosa's, in my location. It isn't sweetened with sugar.. Doesn't need to be. And tastes like tomatoes, not sweet. A 2-3 day process when I want it to be, but I can speed it up in a pinch. This evening will be a much quickened process. Call it a pinch I guess.

    De Cecco pasta. People say pasta is pasta. And that is somewhat true. But in order to do this correctly, which a vast majority of restaurants don't, it needs to be pasta that can properly be prepared and served al dente.

    The sausage, after browned, actually gets put into the sauce with some time to marry the flavor.

    Sauce or gravy? That's an argument for another time, but sauce or gravy needs to be a little bit watery, and not solid. Too many places pass off solid gruel as gravy or sauce. I put just a smidge of asiago, parmesan and romano in the sauce at the very end.

    This will pass for making me happy this evening. It reminds me of several restaurants I prefer, and enjoy. Mostly in Pompano Beach, Las Vegas, Sicily, up near Chicago outside of Lake Geneva, my mother's place when I was growing up, etc. All smaller places. Hole in the wall type places. More often than not, operated by families. Usually a trattoria. On occasion an osteria or ristorante.

    While sitting in the car waiting for my brother to pick up his dry cleaning, I said to myself, it’s a good thing I’m not going to run into anyone I know. I’m dressed very casual, no makeup, no bling and my hair is wind/rain blown. Our next stop is a local restaurant to get takeout for dinner. Inside is a cameraman from a local station shooting video. He interviewed us. I might be on the 10 o’clock news, LOL.

    Are the dogs calm or do they love going in the water?

    I don't think we have the pot pies here, though I don't go there often. I am a sucker for the chicken bowl. Mashed potatoes with all the stuff in it.. mmmmmmm

    That was maiden voyage for all of them.

    The small one (Cosmo) was not happy and couldn't wait to get back on to the dock. Our black-eyed mutt (Lucky) was enjoying the hell of it though. :)

    And, yes... the dogs names are Vegas related.

    This is a great thread - I will add to it later today - gotta get the work computer going!

    Enjoy your day and hope you find new ways to put a smile on your face.

    @Mrs2BOBCATS really wants to get a new puppy and she's got Cosmo picked out for the name already too. @Mr2BOBCATS isn't quite ready for another dog yet though.
