For all those “I Don’t know what to cook” moments…

I think we all have those moments, maybe even the great chefs have them. 

Usually the spaghetti garlic, oil, and hot pepper solve a hot meal adequately.  Eventually we can solve it with the “let’s get a pizza“ moment.

But aside from those solutions, when we are in no mood to cook at all, not even some spaghetti; Italian Cuisine lends itself nicely to solve those moments with lots of ready-to-the-table products. 

Every Italian Supermarket has a deli counter,  with lots of delicatessen to help any customer to come up with a decent impromptu meal. The cold meat section offers a vast array of prosciutto and other cold cuts, plus a multitude of cheeses, from the fresh mozzarella, to the seasoned ones.

A fresh and crunchy ciabatta loaf and some grilled vegetables–to add a little healthy side–plus a selection of precooked or cured meats sliced and served cold, is a good and tasty solution for a quick lunch.

That doesn’t mean that hamburghers joints and McDonald are negletted by Italians. There are more and more of those too.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
