Great name: Italian Wedding Soup

By on March 28, 2014

Some dishes excite just through the settings evoked.  Like Baja Style Fish Tacos – a late lunch on a barstool somewhere warm.**  Or Porterhouse for Two – dinner at a clubby NYC steakhouse, settled next to each other in the lush red banquette. Perhaps a vodka martini with blue-cheese stuffed olives…

And then there’s “Italian Wedding Soup”, which just sounds like fun and happiness and all things good.  Plus you get to say “polpette.”  The polpettes before cooking – one teaspoon each:

We’ve been threatening to do this soup for a long time, and a recent recuperation presented the right moment.  My soup came out quite nice,
but even if it didn’t I’d still love that name…

** Some color on the Baja Tacos —  They’re served with guacamole, salty air and cold beer.  Mine a Modelo Especial.  Hers a shortie (pony) because she can’t finish a regular size beer before it warms. The tot has destroyed the little basket of chips, I only got like three.  Gipsy King’s Spanish version of Hotel California is playing.  It’s 2:20.
