It’s Monday, but please l pretend I’m still enjoying the weekend!

13 Feb

This weekend just gone was just about lots of food, lots of cooking and lots of drinking…that’s why I don’t want to let it go!

I let the pictures to speak for me:

Saturday night, in, eating Italian cheese and drinking red wine

At one stage the cat decided to read my magazine

Sunday morning, good start with a cappuccino

Followed by bacon and fried egg in fresh bread…

Followed by a few hours enjoying the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, so we could eat more later!


But it’s not over yet, my husband made a new york cheesecake to show me that I suck at baking…he’s right!

Now, do you understand why I nearly cried this morning when I checked my weight on the scale? I have two solutions…or I change all the jeans in my closet or…I eat a bit less!

I heart BG

I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong…

Linkin Park used to sing this lyric and it made me think about last night in town with my friends, I felt like a tourist in my own town but I felt that connection I missed for so long, I love Bergamo!

I still cannot believe how hot it is still, 29 degrees ( or 84 it’s up to you) and  around town it was so busy, lots of people walking around the shops, enjoying the aperitif time, chatting away with everyone…that’s what I miss so much!

After the aperitif we went to get the cable railway and another world opened up in front of my eyes, Bergamo Alta or Città Alta for everyone else…this  old part of town it’s particularly close to my heart because my husband asked me to marry him under the arches of Piazza Vecchia, the main old square, so you can understand the feeling when I arrive here!

Dinner was great, salame, cheeses, white wine, red wine, polenta, sausages, porcini mushrooms, I need a diet soon!! Walking around town for an ice cream it’s the final best thing to end your evening…I’m just about to fly back home in a few hours, and I do miss already all this so much!!!

For all my friends, Anna, Raffaele, Christian, Marco, Lory, Nicola…you made my weekend unforgettable! I love you all!








Summer is over, Night in, bottle of wine and good food

30 Aug


Today in Brighton the sky has been grey and full of clouds, the temperature dropped down and for some strange reason it feels already autumn. After the very nice long weekend away I’m happy to be back home, look forward a nice dinner for us and just chill out watching  TV and maybe have an early night, the journey to come back to shore by boat yesterday left me with some bruises and the feeling I’ve been beaten up, not good! I should cheer myself up with a nice bottle of wine and some good food, possibly comfort food! Tonight I feel like I want chorizo, and porcini mushrooms… Let’s google them and see what’s coming up…


A good bottle of white wine and some simple ingrendients, pasta, fresh tomatoes, porcini mushrooms, chorizo a just a bit of red winegar… I love when Kim (yes, my husband has a name 🙂 ) tastes what I cook for dinner and say MMMMMMMMMMM… It makes me happy!!!

Shall whe finish the bottle of wine and we watch  CSI MIAMI? It sounds like a plan, good night to everyone.
