.: Seven seas (sea 4)

and then simplicity: the typical “street food” of Romagna (and Emilia too, somehow) is piadina, gnocco fritto, salumi (prosciutto-ham, salame, mortadella and so on) and cheese.

I’m not a great cheese lover, but some cheeses are great with the perfect taste of gnocco fritto and with piadina too

but this was not enough: the chef really wanted to kill us with a tiramisù alla frutta

you can enter into trance with this….

.: Feeling good

Two simple things put together. Chicken and salame or chicken and ham or…whatever you like, to spice it

Two things like a beautiful voice and a perfect song…

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on a tree
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean,
Don’t you know?
Butterflies all havin’ fun
You know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean

And this old world
Is a new world
And a bold world
For me
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Just put them in a pan and … feel good.

Just two elements, like C and O… can burn.

what do you think about this rendition ?

.: Ladies in colors

Lady in white

Lady in black

Which one do you like better? I am more on Uriah Heep

She came to me one morning
One lonely sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win
But she wouldnt think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin
And yet impossible to end
For shes the mother of our men
Who counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay
Thus having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw
Her black coat disappear
My labour is no easier
But now I know Im not alone
I find new heart each time
I think upon that windy day
And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her
As your prize
And say hello from me

I like simple tasty food, and we have some here in my region. Everyone knows Parma ham, but who knows Felino salame ? And they dedicated a museum to it ! Il salame di Felino è una meraviglia della vita. Se penso che più di 7 miliardi di persone non lo conosce…! Salame di Felino is a real pleasure, and you just need a slice of bread to be delighted.

love simplicity!

.: Simple bread

C’è qualcosa di più semplice del pane e formaggio ? Credo di no. Anche se in realtà il formaggio è qualcosa di molto complicato… anche se oggi forse non ci pensiamo. Lo stesso vale per il pane e salame. Cibi che l’uomo ha inventato migliaia di anni fa, eppure invenzioni geniali… il grano, la farina, il formaggio, il salame…

Non solo quelli che hanno qualche anno in più (eh!) avranno sicuramente visto questo personaggetto qui e le sue sbafate di pane e formaggio, che farebbero venire fame a un anoressico

e allora oggi ho deciso di celebrare la semplicità: pane, salame e formaggio. Un tipo di mozzarella fatto apposta per essere scaldato in padella e fare quella crosticina che mmmmmmm…. When I was in the USA what I used to think, almost every day, was “american people don’t know the pleasure of a real good panino with prosciutto and formaggio!”. Yes I have to say it with the italian words, cause believe me… there is nothing there that you can call panino, prosciutto, formaggio, and salame, like the italian ones.

yes I did some more bread… cause I love it. Why ? It’s kind of universal bread. You call it makhmar, piadina, tortillas,  chapati or naan, bauernbrot or arepas it always is the same fundamental and brilliant idea of food.

Be’ gli americani non possono insegnarci molto riguardo al cibo, però, invece del simple bread hanno il “simple man” dei Lynyrd Skynyrd…

“Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied
And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand”
