This afternoon I'll be attending a live taping of Mary Ann Esposito's Ciao Italia show. I'm really, really looking forward to this. Later in the evening we've been invited to a dinner that she and her staff put on. My mouth is watering just thinking about it ~ yum!
I've made her recipes for my family in the past and they love them. How could they not? Her dishes remind me of my grandmother's cooking. I call it family food ~ as in Sunday suppers with your family, the comfort foods of home, the ones you crave and nothing else can be substitute.
For my family, many memories are made in the kitchen around food. I truly enjoy cooking with and for my family. Now that my children are older, they too are part of the process.
It's a great way to spend some family time and catch up with what is going on in everyone's lives. My children are more apt to "talk" to us if they are involved in an activity. Their guards are down and the conversation just seems to flow naturally. We are also creating our own family memories that they will look back on one day.
It's been a busy week here in our home. I promise to post pictures of my day in Newport. We had a fabulous time!
I'm off to jog/walk the Mystic River. I've begun the couch to 5k and I'm doing rather well if I do say so myself. I should probably go a little further today since I'll will be eating my way through the evening!
Enjoy your day!
