Ok, I know I’ll soon be gobbling loads of pizza in Italy…but how about a couple of slices to get me started?!
There was no time to cook tonight, between errands, needing to pack and what not, so I picked up a piping-hot, pizza pie on my way home from work.
Black olives for her, beef & mushroom for him. Hot & cheesy, pleasy.
In other news, I’ve got my reading materials for the plane ride all ready to go:
Water for Elephants, recommended by several of you, and Playing for Pizza which my Dad told me I HAD to read since it’s set in Italy and has got some great descriptions of Italian food.
Plus my Rick Steves’ Rome 2010 guide and Access Rome book.
I was hoping to pick up some more good reads at the library last night, but every single book on my “must read” list had a waiting list 100 people long! Think I’ll pick something up at the book store in the airport tomorrow…
My clothes are folded and ready to be packed into my pack. Yep, Ben talked me into going the hardcore back packer route!
All important documents have been printed and copied. Checklists for the morning have been made. Flights have been confirmed.
Yep, I think I’m ready!
Before I go, I want to encourage you all to visit my friend Mara’s blog, I Made Dinner. She’s donating all of her blog proceeds in the month of September to the A to Z Literacy Project which sends thousands of books annually to needy children in Zambia. Click, click, click!!!
Well, my friends, I hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day weekend, I hope you enjoy the guest posts detailing out your “Best Vacations Ever” over the next week and I hope to talk to you soon from the great city of Rome!
