Quiet day today. Still. Silent. Cool and clear. I did some work in the kitchen. I wrestled with my WordPress Menu issue. I finally gave up and asked my friend Roger, who’s a WordPress expert, for help. He fixed it, lickety split. Thank you Roger! So now my top menu has a new item called Recipes. Under that item will be recipes of things I have made and talked about here on the blog. Right now there is the Lentil Spinach soup recipe, and the oatmeal cookie recipe. I’ll add the pasta one from last night too.
Last night we had some of the left over Chipotle pork. I made fresh salsa, black beans, sautéed onions and peppers. And we built ourselves tortillas. Quite yummy. But not worth a picture.
I read that some other states have finally seen the light and closed down activities. They will pay for waiting I am afraid. And there sadly still remain five (last count) states who have not shut down anything. Florida announced today but they exempted the Churches. Packing the pews shoulder to shoulder and having large groups breathing together in a room is SUCH a bad idea. Even here in Italy where regular Mass is a fact of life they have stopped services. I hope the churches get smart on their own and close. For their congregants sake. Fools!
Here in Italy the government has extended our lockdown until April 13 when they will reassess. I am reasonably sure it will go to May at least. What a way to spend spring.
I just finished my weekly Italian lesson. All is tranquille in Casa LUNA.
Ciao for today. As always, stay home, stay safe…faremo insieme. 💕
