Linguine with Spicy Red Clam Sauce for #SundaySupper

My family has a favorite local Italian restaurant that we have gone to for over 20 years. Anytime my out of town relatives are here, that restaurant is one of our first stops. It is starting to become a pre-Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition to go carb load and then feast on turkey the next day.

We took the opportunity to escape to my in laws house in the Georgia mountains. We can't wait to get back and see our shiny new floors, but one thing we won't be heading back to is a kitchen. Before starting the floors we removed the kitchen … [Read more...]
