Sausagefest! Tip for downtown D.C.’s lunch crowd: If it’s between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday or Friday, head over to Potenza (15th and H). They grill up pork sausages (sweet or spicy) and top ‘em with tomato sauce, onions and peppers. There’s even a nice outdoor couch area if you have time to sit and eat — I usually grab my order to go.
Ricotta-lemon ravioli with spinach-walnut pesto: a recipe I’ve been meaning to try since seeing the demo on “Cooking for Real.”
After several false starts — no thanks to the “international” sections of Giant, Harris Teeter, Safeway and Whole Foods — I found a whole shelf of wonton wrappers at an Asian grocery store in Eden Center. (Yes, I bought extra to keep in the freezer.)
So happy with the results! (And yummy in the tummy.)
