    Hi Nancy, I sent you an email, I have some questions regarding Umbria Residency for Retirement.

    Hi Tom, thanks for letting me know. I thought it was a great soup and it’s now in my rotation of soups! And I’m glad you enjoy the blog 🙂

    Hi Nancy – I have been enjoying your blog for a while now. We also have enjoyed some of your recipes. Had to let you know that we made your Azteca Squash Soup for dinner this evening and absolutely loved it. Thanks for sharing your adventures and recipes. We’re looking forward to once again traveling through Italy in 2022.

    I try to credit any recipe I use. Many times I’ll use several ideas from different recipes and make it “my own”. Thank you for this comment. I’ll try to check where I got my inspiration and see if I should credit someone.
    [Edit: Shari, I went to the original post and I credited The NY Times. Thing is when I posted that post I copied and pasted the recipe into the recipe list and didn’t credit it there. I usually have the recipes in the original blog and then in the recipes. Her is a link to the original post… ]

    I rarely comment when I see a recipe that maybe should be credited to someone else. I saw “your” recipe for Smoky Lentil Soup with Leeks and Potatoes in the NYT. Almost exactly as you have it here. I am not saying who failed to credit who, but it’s so easy to do the right thing. And failing to do so is just pretense, dishonest and insecure.

    Thanks Troy and Mary! We all are just waiting…anticipating! I appreciate the no sew one but I’m challenging myself…and my rotten sewing skills! After all…what else do I have to do? I can report on my progress! You both stay home and safe…it remains to be seen how it all plays out.

    Great blog – I love following your travels. Could you post a picture of your car? I would love to see it.

    the War was tough around here, for sure. I bet you miss Umbertide. It is a quirky little place but it grows into your heart! Your life sounds interesting. We went to Abruzzo this summer. I like that region.

    Hi Nancy, Have fond memories of Umbertide. We lived in a village called Santa Guiliana not far from there for two six month periods in the late 90’s and Umbertide was our nearest town. I still make my version of Umbrian ministrone, which we first enjoyed in a little trattoria there run by a lady who saw her husband put up against the wall opposite and shot by the Nazis.
    We now live half the year in a village in Abruzzo and half in Australia.
