First Year

In essence we have completed our first year of ownership.   It has not been without its trials and tribulations; but has come with rewards as well.  One of the first things we wanted to do was have a gathering to celebrate this milestone.  Even though we are entirely ensconced into the Italian way of life, we thought it might be fun to give the Italians a peek into an American tradition – a BBQ.

Grazie dio, the day of the BBQ was cool and balmy as our new friends wound their way up the hill to the house.

So we gathered some newly made Italian friends, architect, caretaker and those that had helped us along the way and prepared a Pulled Pork on the Weber grill that had been brought over in the container last year.

I also had brought over several Brownie mixes which are apparently difficult to obtain in Italy.  Everyone enjoyed the chocolatey brownies piled high on the cake stand.

At the end of the day, a game of bocce was enjoyed!!!
