Saffron Infused Linguini

Hello again everyone.

As you may know, Hollywood is employed as a server at Charlie Gitto’s in Chesterfield.  She loves her job.  Its waaaaaaay better than her last job scooping dog shit for $8.50 per hour.


Part of the job is to memorize the menu and the ingredients involved in making each dish. That way she can answer stupid customer questions about how a particular entre can be made to be “gluten free”.  Even when the customer is not allergic to gluten.  It goes something like this:  “Is it possible for me to tell you how to screw up the recipe for this dish in such a way that it will totally suck and I will hate it?”  Yes, there are customers like that — just ask Hollywood.

So what does all of this have to do with saffron infused linguini?  Well, Charlie’s sea bass special is served on a bed of such … and was upset when the gluten free substitute could not be “saffron infused” as well.  Huh?  What a moron.  If you want to eat shit, then go to a lousy Mexican restaurant.


The Old Lady and I went to Charlie’s for our anniversary.  It was a wonderful experience (even if the Old Lady scared the beeeejeeeebers out of our waiter by telling him, quite directly, that we were in NO HURRY).  Anyway, I digress.  We both had a very difficult time keeping a straight face as the waiter told us about Charlie’s specials … including the sea bass on the bed of saffron infused linguini!  He must have thought we were nuts.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
