Taking cooking really seriously, spending lots of time with the puppy and dreaming a get away in10 days…the latest updates

20 May

Dear readers

Time is never enough and sometimes I just struggle a bit to find 15 minutes to sit down in front of my laptop to do some writing (I am taking advantage of the moment now that the dog is asleep!)

So…what’s up you guys? I have been in England for over 3 weeks and I feel it…I feel like escaping again! All I think about right now is to take care of Coco…who’s 6 months today!

I think about cooking all the time (and I wonder why I can get rid of those two kilos more on my body)…I think about going out for long walk on Brighton beach (If only the weather could be on my side)…and I can’t stop thinking about that in 10 days I am off to Miami again, oh yeah!!

We had a very busy weekend to prepare a dinner party here at home, Italian dinner party to be precise, and my lasagne as usual came out perfect! I am bit surprised about how good  is my husband when he is cooking, he made Sicilian style arancini (rice balls with minced meat and breadcrumbs)…I am starting to doubt his citizenship!!

Please take me back to the Cotswold: breath-taking countryside, peace, quiet, sunshine…I might love England a bit more thanks to this beautiful place!

Hello readers

I spent a lovely bank holiday long weekend with friends in their gorgeous Cotswold cottage and I enjoyed so much, the weather was great, the sun was shining, the friends and their kids were lovely and every time I turned my head I could only see beautiful open fields, gorgeous stone houses and….nothing else, the sound of the silence!!

This is such a beautiful part of the country, so many Londoners have properties here…and if it’s good enough for Kate Moss…it’s good enough for me to brave some country chic!

Coco and her two new friends loved it as well…!

Here we are with some pictures…enjoy!!!

The ups and downs of dieting…crazy cravings, food obsession or more? I blame my vacation in Miami!!

2 May

superstickies (1)

I have been over indulging for 12 days, I cannot bare the idea to deprive myself of a dirty stinking burger and fries If I want to, ok the bikini started to feel a bit tight but as I said to my friends, more responsible than me…Sod it the diet starts on Monday when I will be back…but when I got back and checked my weight on the scale I wanted to bang my head on the wall…2.5 kg more (5.5 pounds), damn me and my food obsession!!!!

No reason to panic, let’s just start to cut down on alcohol first of all : I have been drinking a lot but that is what you do in vacation, you don’t drink a bottle of Corona and think : Oh yes this is already 148 calories…oh yes let’s pop the champagne at 10.30 am, which must be 5pm somewhere…and here we are another 89 calories per glass….  But as my dad would say to my husband when we stay by the seaside in Italy when the new bottle of Prosecco comes up…Holiday!!! (Or Vacation! for Americans)

diet

Anyway I am not 20 years old anymore and my metabolism is not as fast anymore so I am trying to go back on track cooking lots of fish, chicken, cutting down portions of pasta, never been crazy for chocolate and what happened?

I suddenly find myself obsessed with “I need a piece of chocolate right now”! I find myself on my iPad checking new recipes most of the day, and because I haven’t drunk anything alcoholic since Saturday night I started to crave even that….tonight we are going out for dinner with friends in town and do you know what I can’t wait to have? A Bombay gin and tonic before dinner!!!!

gin and tonic

1kg (2.2 pounds) has already gone down ( probably water retention)  and I still have a lot to work on. Luckily I have a crazy dog here that needs walking and exercise so at least I have to get out and walk a lot with Coco and listen to me….I went back to the gym today…please orchestra go on….we need to celebrate this rare moment!!

gym advice

And what about this weekend that we are going to visit friends in the Cotswolds? Fuck the diet let’s start again on Monday….actually on Tuesday because Monday is bank-holiday….thanks British calendar!!!

diet on monday
