Ciao for Now
Here I am with my morning coffee and biscotti, musing about summer, good food, and life. Ah, yes.
I’m also musing about what next in terms of “Bring Joy to the Table.” Since August marks four years of my blog and 80 years—omg—that I’ve been on the planet, it feels like a right time to reflect.. And so…I’m going to take a summer break from the blog to see what new ideas, insights and directions may emerge—for the blog and for la vita.
But before I do that, I offer a few recent foodie forays and a favorite quote…
♥ We are loving the 2022 season of Somebody Feed Phil—we “visited” Rio de Janeiro and Helsinki and loved the food, people, and “hee-hee” nature of Phil. We look forward to more episodes
♥ I just bought the e-book version of The Village Baker’s Wife (by Gayle and Joe Ortiz, and Laura Beers). It is about Gayle’s Bakery and Rosticceria in Capitola, California, that has incredibly beautiful and tasty baked goods and food, and my favorite biscotti. It is a fun and informative read. Will I bake from it? We will see. I do know that when I’m home-home, I will drive to Gayle’s just to buy the biscotti, however!
♥ And here’s a quote from author-artist Brian Andreas that I love…
“There are things you do because they feel right and they may make no sense and they may make no money and it may be the real reason we are here: to love each other and to eat each other’s cooking and say it was good.”
And so, dear readers, happy eating, happy summer and ciao for now♥
