“It is forbidden to drink cappuccino after 2 pm”

Needless to say, you have to read them sitting at the bar after having ordered something absurd that makes the barrista’s mouth twist (with two r’s, as Massimo wants – even if in Italian he says “it spells barista[4]” with only one r), even if I don’t know how they were able to translate the harshly Tuscan in any other language; anyway, read it with an eye on the book and an ear on the gossip: you never know you might also come across some crime….

There is a summer time when you can’t stay outside. Whether you love the sea or the mountains, the sun, to say it in the Roman style, “’ ncoccia[1] ”and willy-nilly you’ll need to be sheltered from it. Whether you suffer from the heat or love it, that time of the day is infamous for everyone.

I mean, even the newscasts mention it …

The hour when there’s nothing on TV.
Of boredom.

And that’s why I suggest you look after preparing the eggs Benedict * shared with a nice frozen ** : the champions’ breakfast!

Usually in the morning I have always been busy, once there was the school, then university, then work. But it happened a time when I hadn’t to follow lessons anylonger and worked in the afternoon, and unexpectedly I had time for me in the early hours of the day and I did not know how to use them, and I found out that you can be very productive before lunch .

It was a time in my life I was really  full of activities, and the idea of having free hours seemed like a luxury that I wasn’t familiar with. I definitely needed to unplug from the routine and enjoy a little this new time.

And it was then that I began to see How I met Your Mother.
It was a suggestion coming from my brother, I have to admit, that was already a fan…

“…Ricapitolando…” serie tv e ricette – Parte 2

In questi anni ho cercato di dare un po’ di consigli su serie tv e libri che secondo me vanno anche sapute abbinare a cibi, bevande, atmosfere, musiche e umore, ma soprattutto alle stagioni; sono arrivata a più di duecento post e  mi sono persa io stessa, perciò eccomi qua a fare di nuovo un piccolo riassunto … Continua a leggere “…Ricapitolando…” serie tv e ricette – Parte 2

“Oh Peralta!”

Mio fratello è un addicted molto selettivo, perciò quando mi consiglia un libro o una serie tv, sono propensa a seguire le sue indicazioni e – fermo restando che ognuno ha i suoi gusti e le sue preferenze – devo dire che fino ad oggi non ha mai sbagliato un colpo.
