It's getting annoying, this habit of
naming days, weeks, and months after foods in order to promote sales.
Every week I get some email proclaiming National Popcorn Day or National Fig Newton Month or the one coming up next: National Pasta Week.
This will occur the second week in October (10 through
17), so brace yourselves for a slew of deals and spiels, most of
which will not be worth much -- with exceptions of course, such as Café Prima
Pasta, which is offering a different homemade pasta dish each night
for $7. This is what the pasta schedule will be:
Sunday - Fettuccine a la carbonara
Tuesday - Rigatoni al ragú di carne
Wednesday - Linguini al pesto
Thursday - Penne a la Norma
Friday - Rigatoni primavera
Saturday - Gnocchi a la Sorrentina
Sunday - Fettuccine with prosciutto, peas, and parmesan
