60/40 Bon Viaggio!

Today, Johnny and I fly to Milan and start our big Italian Adventure.

The getting ready has been great fun. We have different styles, but we both decided to do capsule wardrobes and packing cubes.

Less is totally more, we both love it.

Maybe we went a little too far at times (John). He ordered these nifty cord holders. I placed them next to my nifty cord holders. Mine’s a sock, cut into un-rubber bands. But that’s OK.  We all do what we can, right?

I had so much fun putting my travel journal together, I had to stop myself from filling every page before we left!

We have a week on our own and travel from Milan to the Amalfi coast. Then we hook up with friends for a ten day culinary tour!

I’ve been practicing my IG Stories, because I’m planning on sharing some food! I’ve never done it before, so if it’s terrible, give a girl a break, I’ll get better.

Check me out! 

My friend Kathleen,grew up in Rome. She had very specific directions on fun things we must do.

Kinda like this…

You can still order some holiday parties while I’m away, Megan is taking calls!

In the meantime, I’ll see you when the pomegranates ripen.

Bon Viaggio to us!


Holiday Menus 2019

We are getting there! The nights are cooler, the days are shorter. Let’s get ready for an L.A. winter and celebrate!

We love the holidays over here in the commissary, because… Parties!

Now listen to me, we make everything! These are simply my favorites of all time. I switch it up every year but winter for me is all of the following: roasted chestnuts, hard squash ( heirloom preferred!)  cranberries, brussel sprouts, and slow roasted meats.  How about you?  Do you see your favorite? Lest we forget…

Sticky Toffee Pudding!  Let the gaiety begin!

(then give us a call and book that date!)

Mmmmmmmmm, gimme S’mores…
