Buona Sera

  I'm back in Assisi again for a two week writer's workshop at  Art Workshop International.

It was 10 years ago that I first heard of the workshop while daydreaming online of writing in a far off land. My kiddles were still living young and with me so there was no way I could tear away to the hillside dream town of Assisi for two weeks.....

But now I can.

 For a second year!!!

                                                             It is pure magic.

 Someday maybe this "Folly" of screenplay I'm working on with my writing partner Mary will be on the big screen for all to see.

Hello There...

I've been MIA for awhile now.

Have you missed me?

I'm nursing a bad cold and decided to make some homemade....well sorta... tomato soup.
It was Fantastic.....

                                            SORTA HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP

~1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce ( I used Giada De Laurentiis from Target- voted #1 in a nation-wide taste test)
~fresh herbs ( I used oregeno and basil)
~ 1 tbs. butter
~2 cups water
~1/2 cup cream( I used half and half)

Saute the herbs in the butter for a nanno second. Add the jar of sauce, the water, the cream and let simmer for 5 minutes.

You're done.

It tastes just like Nonna used to make.

Now all you need is  a grilled cheese and  you're all set for the perfect lunch or dinner.
