Dolce Italiano

I am so excited! I came home after a really bad day at work today... and look what was on my doorstep.

My own copy of Dolce Italiano by Gina DePalma.

That sweet Jerry! He has been bootlegging me the recipes for our Sunday Slow Bakers. Now I have my own copy of the cookbook.

Knowing Jerry, he probably would rather we think that he did so I would quit whining. I know the truth... he is just a sweet teddy bear who has a touch of southern gentleman in him. He is quite something for a ranting Canadian.

Now I am that much more excited about spending a week together in Montisi. This is where you will find Jerry, Paul, and me in a couple of weeks.

Grazie Mille ~ Sei molto gentile!

I know, I know...I'm saying it yet again...I'm playing "catch up" with my blog reading. It happens more often than I ever thought possible. But I'm not complaining though. My life is full and happy, so sometimes I get behind.

It's always fun to visit you. Hey, you never told me you could paint??

I'm still jealous about your trip....I want to go too.
