Italy.



Back from vacation. Many favorite moments, but maybe the best was when the kid ordered pasta as both the first and second course. The hipster Roman server at Maccheroni said, "TWO pasta? Ok." And it was total approval... like, OF COURSE you would need to order the foglie with black truffle to start and the fat noodles with red sauce as your second. Why didn't we think of that already? Why do we even bother with a meat course??

There is nothing like Italy for the soul.

Oh, the yearning! Whenever I go into great depths about the time I have spent in Italy or France I get all weepy. It's kind of embarrassing. Aside from my wonderful husband Italy and France are my great loves.

These pictures, plus the barely-working folks who buy homes in Italy, Spain, and France on house hunters international make me wonder about other paths.

Is ordering pasta for two courses in Italy like getting mashed potatoes *and* french fries as your sides in the US? Because I am all for that.

I would totally gobble up more than one course of fresh Italian pasta. The kid is not alone.

Btw, I think it's badass that you brought the kid on the trip. Super cool. Hell of an experience for a young person!

A meal with two pasta courses sounds perfect to me.
