||ashdfahflskdf I JUST GOT IT. Oh my goddd I love it so much already. This is one of those food porn books that I've always wanted but couldn't justify the cost, but a few unwanted Christmas gifts added up to THIS at Borders. I've limited myself to the introduction so far, but it's snarky and new school and he is freaking adorable. I am honestly bouncing around at the prospect of trying all of these beautiful new recipes. *LOVES MADLY*|
To make it even more obvious that I am Italian and love food (which, yes, repetitive), we went to Carmello's
in Old Town Manassas tonight. It's a hole-in-the-wall place that's mainly Italian and a little Portuguese and you will never ever want to leave. Their olive bread is to die for, and I am in love with their gnocchi carnesani, and just in case you don't asplode from all of that, their espresso with a glass of mascarpone will finish you off. It's the kind of place I want to go if I ever do manage to find my way to Italy. I can die happy now.
