Thanks to a Whatsapp chat with my friends about cookies the fact Halloween and All souls’ day are near came up to my mind.
Usually I try to post something Halloween related as I love this feast and its traditions.
This year I decided to keep it linked to Italian traditions ( we feel the All Souls’ day pretty much and we have many dishes, sweets, habits related to it) and I want to share with you those cookies, called in Italy “fave dei morti” that means something like Deaths’ fava beans.
Back again with the last recipe left from my Tex- Mex lunch I made some months ago: frijoles charros.
I took the recipe from a book ( in Italian) written by a Texas girl living in Italy.
These are the beans eaten by cowboys, very far from the Italian food but we too have similar bean recipes, I think I should post some of them!
Beans are like flatbread: you can find local versions everywhere in the world!
October is here, it brought first chill, with first chill cold arrived.
If, until last year, a simple cold was just an annoying thing now everything must stand still until the doctors give their ok to the normal social living.
Luckly we got this ok so, even if we’re not going around spreading cold, we at least can avoid long isolation.
I’m working on the Facebook page of this blog.
The page opened in 2010, when likes weren’t a treasure hunt and when my knowledge of social media was below 0.
The page ended having tons of like, a mixed language public because I wanted to manage both Italian and English blog at once and no interactions.
Laying on the couch on a late sunday afternoon while hubby is attending a beer recipes’ lesson about how to develop them.
I’ve learnt that there is no theory or learning about beer without drinking ” samples” and without long chats exchanging points of view so I think he will return late LOL!
