VATICAN CITY Taking the chef completely by surprise, Pope Francis unexpectedly showed up to eat with the Vatican's blue-collar workers at their cafeteria in the tiny city-state's "industrial park."

"He showed up, got his tray, silverware, he stood in line and we served him," the cafeteria's chef, Franco Paini, told Vatican Radio on Friday.

He acted "normally, like the humblest of the workers," Paini said, his voice still trembling from the thrill. "Please forgive me, I'm still excited, you know?"
....
He got a plate of pasta without sauce; a portion of cod; a whole wheat roll; some "au gratin" vegetables; a few French fries; an apple; and a bottle of spring water -- but not the fizzy, bubbly kind, witnessed reported.

Tomato sauce made the old fashioned way ... not from jars.

Pesto sauce is also great.

He wears a white cassock.  Anyone who has ever worn one knows what a pain in the neck those are to keep clean.

Yes, always looking for red spots can be a pain in the neck.

Haven't had pesto in a while. But I do like making my own tomato sauce. Fresh everything of course works best.
How old fashioned is old fashioned? Is a blender allowed?

Oh, don't remind me of my life in Catholic university dorms. The food was awful ... fast food ... moldy food too.

Lord have mercy, and the prices we had to pay for that outrageous food.
