hello august....

One of the many things that I am looking forward to doing this August especially after reading article from Elizabeth Minchilli, is to head over to L'Isola del Cinema, an outdoor film festival in Rome on Tiber Island.  It seems the main attractions though are the many bars & restaurants set up along the Tiber River banks.  Doesn't that sound like a fun and romantic evening?

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  I had some nice visits with my senior friends, went bike riding and on a few walks, and Stephanie made a wonderful vegan penne pasta with vodka sauce!

Have a great week, everyone!

8 more days!!!

UPDATE: Here is the link for the Vegan Penne Pasta with Vodka Sauce  - we use brown rice pasta to make it gluten free.

Today has been hot, sunny and clear blue skies but,you can never guarantee that it will stay that way over here.
Sounds as if you had a lovely weekend Cathi and, Stephanie's sauce sound's delicious. Any chance of the recipe or is it a closely guarded family secret recipe ?!! XXXX
