"Have you ever had these before?" I asked Tracie. "They're pretty good."
"No," she said, "I haven't had arancini bites since I was in Sicily."
"Hmm. These might not be that good."
And they weren't anything special, they were awfully dry, although I still ate a few of them, dipped in some marinara sauce. I also spread Trader Joe's burrata on slices of baguette. The other thing I cooked was a TJ's Pizza Parlanno. I wrote about this pizza a month ago - it might be my favorite frozen pizza out there. The sausage is great, and the peppers and onions actually taste like they have been roasted.
The episode of Bourdain was not as good as last week's in Brittany. The theme of it seemed to be that the Czechs have great beer but the food is still trying to find its way (although there is a lot of meat to be eaten everywhere you go.) However, there was a scene at a sausage stand that I loved - Tony ate two sausages and then a fried cheese sandwich: a big slab of fried cheese on a bun, just dripping with mayonnaise. The girls thought it looked gross with all the mayo, but I am totally making that sandwich soon.
