STORM THAT BASTILLE
Posted on Sunday 8 December.
sometimes, you know exactly who’s coming to dinner.
orphan friends will flock to the upper west side
for turkey and stuff —
"you’ve got thanksgiving," we’ll call it,
with meg and tom on the mind.
it’s wholly nonsensical. but then, so is the meal,
and this holiday, in general.
so i’ll bring the pie, and the place cards.
Today I made a thing. It was pretty good. So, I’ll post it here.
Now, I don’t have any rustic plates or chalkboard-painted tables or fancy cameras, so bear with me on this. Also, I do not, nor have I ever, proclaimed to be a “food blogger.” Whatever.
Linguine Fini Alfredo w/ Chicken Sausage
for two, or one with leftovers. or just one. why not.
- 2 chicken sausages
- linguine fini
- frozen or fresh green peas
- sunflower seeds
- grated parmesan
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Fill saucepan with water, add a dash of salt, and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, heat saute pan over medium heat, toasting the sunflower seeds in the process. Cut chicken sausages into small pieces and add to pan. Cook until brown. Turn burner to lowest setting.
Add peas to boiling water, along with the pasta, and cook according to the pasta’s directions. Drain and add to the saute pan. Add cream, olive oil, cheese, salt, and pepper and cook until the sauce thickens and clings to the noodles.
Serve immediately. As in, right away.

After purchasing some pecans,
I made my way home by way of Devoe.
A woman walked slowly behind a stroller,
so I crossed to the opposite side of the street.
I took a deep breath, preparing to sigh
when I caught the eye of a stranger
sitting on her stoop. And instead held it.
Later, back at home, I baked some pumpkin bread.
