Shattering news from the world of Mezzetta giardiniera.

In this post: Shipping error.

My six-pack of Mezzetta Italian Mix Giardiniera arrived yesterday from Amazon with one shattered jar that leaked broken glass, peppers, onions and pickled cauliflower all over EVERYTHING. I managed to salvage the other five jars but sent a message to the seller through Amazon to crab about their mentally ill packaging — crumpled paper! — and request a replacement or a refund for one-sixth of the purchase price. Watch this blog for additional developments but I hope you’ll feel free to continue your usual routine in the meantime.

It’s 10 p.m., Sam is asleep in the family room watching one of the Die Hard movies and I’m pondering a very late low-carb dinner. I think I’d like a pile of giardiniera with a couple of my favorite frozen cooked angus burgers from Costco that taste like they just came off the grill. With cheese! And since Sam is completely unconscious I can flip the channel to “Under the Gunn” on Lifetime (Tim Gunn’s “Project Runway” knockoff) and he’ll never know the difference.
Thank you for reading this.
