.: Hung up

Once a friend told me: “There is no carbohydrate that I can’t love”. That’s true. Well.. if you move like Madonna, you can eat whatever icecream, tart, pastry and cake on this planet… and I do !

Last week I tried this… with some fresh orange juice!

then I tried this “shell pastry”

and my last excess-food was an ice cream with black cherries…

.: All good

Some days you start good, go on good and end good. First, a nice breakfast with my lovely biscuits…

Then tagliatelle al ragù…

Third: you start to cook some bread

and you will have it with some simple and nice polpette

this is my bread

and in the end… you add ice cream to some beautiful strawberries

isn’t it all good ?

.: Heroes

I once met a lady who used to ride tenths kilometers by bike, just to take messages to those who were hiding from the nazis… and I once met a man who risked his life to denounce the Nazi regime’s crimes and oppression, and to call for resistance.

We can be heroes and heroines. Somebody is called to be more brave than others, but sometimes we can be heroes even in simpler circumstances.

So I didn’t add a note of red in this very simple dessert, thinking that… those brave people took “the red part” away from us. Qualcuno è stato coraggioso per noi, e ci ha permesso di vivere una vita più facile.

we can have vanilla ice cream and mint syrup, for a fresh taste, and celebrate once again. But again think: still today some people are called to be heroes.

I think we should be happy for small-looking things. Maybe they’re great things, actually.
