October Birthdays

This is a crazy month for birthdays, and this week is especially birthday-ful. Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law Sandro, who celebrated his birthday yesterday at our house. We ordered Chinese food and I made carrot cake, and we all watched episodes from the last season of Gilmore Girls which is just airing now in Italy--Una Mamma Per Amica--with my niece Valentina and our friend's daughter, Simi (the party was kinda big for a Tuesday night, I'd say!). Needless-to-say, we've got a ton of leftovers! I guess that's lunch for today. Anyway, happy birthday Sandro--I hope you enjoyed the celebration!

And--happy birthday today to my Aunt Jing, back in Indianapolis, and my friend Susan, who lives in New York! I hope that both of you have wonderful birthdays, and I wish I could be there to celebrate with you!

You know what else I discovered about this month? National Pizza Month! Never heard of it, so I'm going to play catch up and try to post as many pizze as pizzable before October is over. I also read that Nov.17 is national pizza day but...eh, being Italy and all, designating one day to this food is pointless. ;-)

lori: yes, the chinese food and carrot cake was a weird combo, but it worked out okay :)! we also had a semifreddo cake that sandro brought (i was like, WHY did you bring your own cake? you're the birthday boy!)

what's the colors of the seaon question for :) ? anyway, i'm trying to be a big fan of purple, as it's everywhere! but i also like typical fall colours--reds and oranges and yellows. is there a pacco for me in the works or something :) ?

rowena: national pizza month! i wonder if there is a sagra or something for that? i'm sure there is--actually we have (in september) a pizza sagra in antonello's old neighborhood...it's yummy, but the lines are always too long to wait in. pizza is a difficult sagra to pull off, i'd think :)! anyway, i'm up for eating pizza on november 17th! sounds good to me!

Auguri a Sandro and Happy Birthday, Aunt Jing and Susan!

Interesting notes about pizza month...a new "pizza & more" place opened in Fountain Square (in Indy) that's called Gusto! (the ! is actually a part of the name) I've heard good things about it and am going to try it out next week. More pizza news soon!

Well, I still owe you a birthday pacco, and xmas is coming up pretty soon... so you never know.... :)

BTW, you should get on facebook! :P It seems like its starting to get more popular in europe as more and more of my friends from over there are getting on. Of course here it's been dying out a bit since we've all been on it for years.... but i still use it!
