My Theme: Lust--in all it's different forms...
So. Italian food! Sweet Mary. I could eat it every day. I really could. Some of my favorites are below. But really any sort (non meat of course) is good in my book.
Caprese Salad is one of my favorites. When we went to Italy I had it with pretty much every meal. It's just so pretty together and tasty too! I make a baked caprese salad that is to die for.
Margarita pizza. Really any pizza.
Another staple at the Boccardy house Broccoli and Macaroni. Every time I would go home from college they would make it for me. Another seriously simple one but delicious. Just pasta, broccoli, oil and garlic. With homemade croutons on top. I've tried to make this dish SO many times and for some reason just can't. Even though I made it dozens of times with the ladies mine on my own just never works. *sobs*
I love Italy too. I've been a few times and would love to go again one day. The last time we went it was with Toni (Granny's daughter) who was in her 70s at the time and going for the first time and her son who was adopted from Italy as a child. It was his first time going back too. The four of us (them, me and my mom) went for 2 weeks and toured the country then went to a friend's wedding in Bologna. We hit some of the big touristy spots but also visited the town where Toni's mother was born and the city where Michael had been adopted. It was amazing! It was right around Christmas so lots of beautiful lights and decorations everywhere too.
So my post is WAY late but I was trying to find my Italy pictures. I managed to find four of them but the data stick with all the others...no clue. Hopefully I'll find it in my spring cleaning at some point. So just a few. We went to Capri/Sorrento, Rome, Bologna, Venice, Matera, Cassano delle Murge and gah but I can't remember the last place where he'd been adopted from. Total brain freeze.
