Buon Natale!

The end to a very stressful year is in sight. We will spend Christmas and New Year at home of course. And we will eat alone. But we will still have yummy things….just not Italian. Italy it is all about the feast of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve, and then lasagna with ragu on Christmas Day. These are the traditional festive meals. I love these traditions but this year I decided to go against the norm. I think, in honor of the fishes I will have fish tacos on Christmas Eve! 😁 And I was gifted a duck for a Christmas present from my friend Vera, so that will be our Christmas dinner.

I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I have hopes that 2021 will be a much better year. It can’t be a lot worse, that’s for sure!

    Nancy, thank you for a year full of friendly news and information. I value your insight. We are still here, just outside Dayton, Ohio, sending our monthly rent to our landlord in Bevagna for an apartment which we left last January. And beginning the fourth year of our lease. If we don’t get back in 2021, we will have lost out half our time. But, as you may have guessed, we plan to renew. Of course. Thanks again. Buon Natale!
