Hello to summer!

This weekend was my last before I head to the seaside with my girls until the end of July. I will have one or two free weekends but besides that, I will be in full-time nanny mode.

We had a nice relaxing weekend to start out the summer season. It began with Italy’s disastrous game against Costa Rica, then a hike in the hills near Lago d’Iseo, an evening out with friends at a city festival, and we finished up with a lazy Sunday brunch.

Not much cooking happened on my end. Friday, Luigi whipped out his famous vegetable tort which has become the only way I will happily consume zucchini.


And last night, we enjoyed a strawberry and chicken salad before heading out for the evening…


The fresh berries with grilled chicken and a simple balsamic and olive oil dressing made for a warm welcome to summer!

And now, I’m off to Santa Margherita and will be out of touch for the next several weeks!

Enjoy the summer eats everybody!
