I know I've been far from prolific lately. One would think that, being self-unemployed and all, I'd have nothing but time to cook and write and entertain you with my kitchen shenanigans. Fact is, while I have been cooking a lot, my time has been otherwise occupied with things like walking the dog, taking the occasional exercise and ... a supertopsecret project that I will reveal soon enough. I do intend to get back to meatier posts here, but in the meantime, here's a little amuse bouche to whet your appetite.
Clerk: "The ravioli in the Lucca box are ours."
Customer: "Why are they called Lucca?"
Clerk: "Because that's our name."
Customer: "Oh, really, I thought you were Molinari. You used to have the Molinari ravioli."
Clerk: "We've always been Lucca."
Customer: "Oh well I used to get Molinari ravioli here. I guess I haven't been in here in a long time."
Diner: "Whoa. This smells like a carnival. And not the sweaty carnie side."
Coworker: "Moe's is like an upper-scale Taco Bell"
