Although St. Patrick’s Day gets all the credit, I always look forward to the holiday right around the corner. According to anecdotal evidence from all the Italian-Americans I know (my family included), St. Joseph’s day is a day to eat lots of good Italian food. My grandmother always makes a lasagna on that day, from start to finish. With a dedication often reserved for brewing beer, my grandmother makes the dough, rolls the pasta, cooks the sauce and invites everyone over for dinner. Though I won’t be able to make it this year, I certainly will salivate at the thought. (Here’s an abridged and spotty history of St. Joseph’s Day.)
In honor of St. Joseph’s day, grab yourself a Birra Moretti and let’s get to Suds.
