4th of July List

All the summer things I miss and All the summer things I have right here in Italy! Happy4th!



Happy 4th of July!
The holiday that says you are surrounded by summer. Independence from school and work, and from  extra layers of clothing (unless you live in Portland, OR and then you are still wearing a hoodie).

All the things I miss:
Friends & Family
Crashing Atlantic ocean waves that sweep you off your feet
Abundant blueberries
Sweet, sweet corn on the cob
Soft Shell Crabs

Little Necks on the half shell, with lots of cocktail sauce
Air conditioning
Ice cubes
Port Town Lerchi
All the things I have close to home:
The sea of choice…Adriatic & Mediterranean, or one of those delicious little islands

People Watching

Endless people watching, the Italians believe in baring flesh no matter your age or condition
One bite wonder crabs,  so sweet a morsel of a bite is enough

Tomatoes Tomatoes

Abundant, sweet melons with hand carved prosciutto
Aperitivi hour when a cool drink does its job
Sparkling water, sparkling wine
Platters of lovely grilled fish
Grilled Fish
Viva the 4th of July!!
Viva la Dolce Vita!!

Enjoy your holiday wherever you may be! Watermelon
