The name orecchiette comes from the Italian orecchia meaning ‘ear’, and –etta, meaning ‘small’. I like to think of them as miniature bowls that hold the creamy goat cheese and garlicky broccoli rabe in this dish.
Rave reviews for this dinner from The Boy, who is a confirmed meat lover.

Leftover chicken + egg noodles = comfort food on the fly! It took me fifteen minutes to put this together, twenty in the oven, and dinner was served. While it’s baking, toss a salad to serve on the side. Quick to make, and a smashing success with the fellas!Continue reading
This inflatable vermin continues to make appearances at Broad and Spruce Streets outside of the Atlantic Building which once housed the classrooms of The Philadelphia College of Art. PCA has left the building and discarded the name a few decades ago. It is now known as The University of the Arts and will probably be named something else if somebody decides to pony up several million dollars from his or her personal fortune. Work is going on inside of the building transforming it into anything other than an art school and representatives from the local unionized building trades are taking umbrage with the folks doing work within.
I have a few questions:
Does the union rent or own the inflatable rat?
Is the company that manufactures inflatable rats a union shop?
Can anybody inflate the rat or is it a union gig? I’m trying to think of which local would handle that.
The cat likes to sit by an old stick lamp with a single low-watt incandescent bulb. Makes great shots. I think of Bernard Herrmann music as I am processing dramatic shots like this in Affinity Photo.
