Getting ready

There's been a lot of "readying" around here, for various reasons...
Cake, for the big boy's birthday
Harvesting the Roma tomatoes (again - this time for brushetta)
Peach Jam, for whenever (and for the locals, got a massive box of 'seconds' peaches for ten bucks. Can't beat it.)

A sleep sack for the new babe in progress

Eleanor's Christmas sweater (you mean you can't tell??)

We had such a lovely celebratory weekend. Anniversary dinner at Chipparelli's (where Toby finds he doesn't really care for Marsala or breaded chicken the hard way), followed by watching a true master of bocce ball in Little Italy. The new 3 year old, loved his gifts, his cake and his family. This birthday passed the true test of a successful celebration: on the way home from ice cream, he fell asleep in the car and was out for the night. Result.

Expect some birthday photos and a couple of recipes this week.

Isn't Little Italy so fun? Our favorite place to eat is Amicci's. We hoped to get down there for a Friday film night, but don't think it's going to happen!
