  • Linda I am so jealous. I just hanppeed on your blog and I'm thinking of my parents right now spending 3 months in Italy with our family and dreaming when I can go back. It's amazing how similar my memories are to your own. Your writing is beautiful and takes me back to that beautiful place and even the memories of my mother (funny my mother shares her name with a poster above Mirella) here in the USA growing up an Italian child in America. Together making the fresh pasta for the lasagna, canning tomatoes, hanging sausages, all the ladies gathering around a table making strozzapreti and roasting peppers for freezing on the old weber grill-me complaining that we're stinking up the neighborhood. Oh how I miss those days. Thank you, thank you for reminding me how blessed that I am to have grown up the daughter of two wonderful immigrants from Italy.
