I seem to be the bearer of bad weather 😦 Ever since my journey across the pond it seems like I’ve barely seen the sun and the temps haven’t gotten above 60. Boooo I’m dying for summer weather! Ah well. When I’m complaining about the heat and humidity in a month or two, someone kindly remind me of this post please.
Today had its share of adventures, despite the thunder clouds. My mom and brother both had hair appointments in town (If you’re ever in need of a haircut in Rome or Naples, look up Noi salons. Pretty pricey BUT Massimo does the princess of Italy’s hair. So obviously it’s worth it) so I tagged along to take in the sights. The trains here had me missing the neat and dependable Germany trains, but Germany doesn’t offer scenery like this either!
After they got (more) beautiful, we walked around a bit and looked at some lovely shops before stopping into a restaurant Massimo recommended for a quick lunch. I’m in love with eggplant and so I got my old standby: Pasta Siciliana. It doesn’t hurt that I was born in Sicily, either 😉
I ate almost all of the pasta, which left me a little too full, so I was grateful for our scenic walk back to the train station. We planned on window shopping along the way back, but alas, it started to rain so we hustled along with everybody else. The rain, wind, and cold made for perfect reading/baking ambiance, so that’s exactly what I did! I only have about 100 pages left in American Gods and it’s gettin’ intense! I also started making these Classic Cinnamon Rolls I saw on the cover of the May issue of Food Network Magazine
Don’t they look yummy?? I thought they’d make a great Saturday morning treat.
A question for you: Do you make a special treat for weekend mornings?
