After breakfast this morning I set about putting together the wedding favors. I don’t want to ruin the surprise on the blog if anyone out there that’s coming is reading so I won’t be specific but it involved lots of little boxes! WHEW!
While waiting for Livio to wake up I had a snack of some juicy, delicious grapes
Then Livio and I made our usual Sunday brunch. The tradition of brunch does not really exist in Italy as it does in America and it’s one of the things I miss the most about the states. Therefore Livio and I usually make pancakes or eggs and bacon to change it up a bit. Brunch is about as American as you can get.
I made a frittata with pancetta and onion and a small side salad to add some vegetables in there. It’s hard to make Livio eat his veggies but he actually loves salad! We also had some delicious bacon-style pancetta on the side. Yum!
Then we had a busy afternoon of hand-crafting wedding decorations! It sure is tiring making all of the little details yourself instead of buying them; but it’s truly special because it is all home made.
Livio entitled this a typical unusual day because it is normal for us to eat things he considers strange or unusual, as I am always trying to invent new ways for him to eat his vegetables. He HATED vegetables when I first met him and tonight I was able to make him eat eggplant. This is truly unusual.
Dinner was actually quite delicious, and greek inspired by this fage brand tzatziki sauce I found at the supermarket yesterday. I always get inspired by new products like this that are more international in Italy!
All in all it was delicious and Livio ate every drop of eggplant on his plate! Che bravo!
Now I am in bed relaxing while I type this post and drinking a hot tea. Good night all! I will be up early for another run =)
