ho giusto del pollo allo spiedo avanzato...ora metto il traduttore e cerco di scopiazzare, bacione!!


Very interesting and creative use of your leftovers. It sounds like a hearty and filling dish.

Bellini Valli

I always enjoy your dialogue and the interesting ways you use the ingredients. This soup sounds like a perfect way to use those leftovers from Thanksgiving.


Roasted chicken for Thanksgiving. Lucky you! I wish I had it. I love this roasted chicken recipe, too. I love that it is easy to make and the outcome is DELICIOUS! I'm thinking of making some lentils for New Year's. Isn't that supposed to be good luck to eat? I'd love to taste the lentils from your hometown. Talk about hometown, I'm glad you included the photo of the palazzo. The windows are awesome-looking. Nice photo. Nice recipe.

Ciao Astro. Ero in ritardo e non ho fatto in tempo a scrivere la traduzione, ma ora c'e' e spero che ti sara' utile. Bacioni back.

Thanks, Ivy. It was welcome at the end of a chilly day.

Thanks, Valli.

Indeed, Paz: easy to make and good to eat. I must admit that I am happy with this recipe and not very keen on trying a different one. Indeed, we eat lentils for New Year's to ring good luck. I hope to be able to write another recipe before then, a bit closer to our tradition. I need to talk to my mom first. I think that you may be able to find these lentils in NY, in some store that carries Italian products. I am glad you like the palazzo.


I love those windows, too. And I am intrigued by the unpeeled garlic in your recipe. Did you cut off the stem end, or leave the clove completely intact? I'm assuming, then, that the skin softened to impart a more delicate flavor? It's a lovely idea, and I am inspired to try my own hand with it.

Simona Carini

Hi Susan. I leave the clove intact and the flavor is delicate. In this situation, it's what I was looking for, given the other flavors involved.


Thank you for the idea with leftovers! And I like the idea of using the nebulizer to coat the chicken evenly :-D - do you mean the same gadget one uses to deal with asthma? Or is there a culinary nebulizer?

I love the photo of that building.

Simona Carini

Hi Sra. Thanks for your comment: not sure why I didn't use the correct word, which is sprayer (or mister).


This turned out really well,especially for a chilly day. I am a great fan of lentils~cook them a lot during the winter months.Loved the photo-missing Italy very much!

Simona Carini

Ciao Jann. Lentils are soul- and body-warming in the winter. I hope you get to visit Italy in the New Year.
