Happy Pride, everyone! I’m celebrating by booking a hotel on the Italian Riviera. Oh yeah. On the beach. You know what the weather looks like in Italy? SUNNY. HOT. PERFECT!
Only five more days here in the states before we head off on the vacation to end all previous vacations! This week is all about: packing, pulling everything together, and getting ready to go.
Where? Paris, the South of France to stay chez Mousseron,
Tuscany, and then back again the way we came. The apartment in Paris is booked, the TGV tickets to the South bought, the car reserved, the house in Tuscany rented. Now, the countdown.
Meanwhile, back in Brooklyn, things are pretty great! The Gods smiled and brought back gorgeous warm (not too warm!) weather AND our elected officials in Albany gave us legalized gay marriage in New York! Our last CSA pick-up yesterday yielded amazing greens (arugula, leafy lettuce, broccoli rabe), broccoli, beets, and of course, EGGS. Have to work our way through it all.
Sunday night: We’re being entertained! Too early for SUMMER PUDDING? Hoping not.
Monday: Pasta with Crispy Prosciutto and Garlic-Scape Pesto (which we had on our pizza last night- delicious!) with Arugula Salad
Tuesday: Carne Asada Tacos with Grilled Vegetables
Wednesday: Fontina, Broccoli Rabe and Mushroom Omelets with Leafy Green Salad
Thursday: Rotisserie Chicken, Kale Salad with Avocado and Parmesan
And we’re off!
Here’s to adventure!
