Sorry I haven't written much in the last couple of weeks. Nothing much exciting has been going on around here to blog about. That will be changing soon because next Friday my parents are arriving and we have a lot of stuff planned to see and do! My mom will be here for 2 weeks, dad for 3 weeks, and Katie for one week. During this time we plan on going to Venice, Bologna, lots of little Tuscan towns, Rome, Florence, the Cinque Terre, and then Paris with my dad for the final week. We will be very busy, but I'm sure it will be a blast! So check back for updates on our travels! :)
What we have been up to in the meantime:
I have still been helping out at the cooking school, usually at least 3 nights a week. Now all of the classes are for groups of Italians. One night is a pastry class, one night a basic cooking class, and then the third night is a special lesson. The people taking the class are mostly just taking it because they are interested in learning how to make some new things. This is not a professional culinary school by any means, but I am nontheless very glad to be able to help out and learn things along the way. I have lots of new recipes and get to eat a very filling dinner every night thanks to Lella's cooking school. Would you want me to continue posting recipes on here like I did the first week? I don't know if everyone who reads this blog is really interested in cooking or more of our adventures over here. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I wouldn't mind posting more recipes but I don't want to bore anyone. thanks for the feedback :)
The weather around here has been very strange lately. Last week we got quite a bit of snow (for Siena standards) and then yesterday it was almost 60 degrees. I don't know if spring is on its way or just teasing us here. I am hoping for the first one.
and since I don't want this blog post to be too boring, I will leave you with some pictures of Siena.
