Omelette rolls with goat's cheese.

September is in full bloom, this week schools are going to open after the usual long summer break ( about 3 months of holiday, it could sound strange abroad) and my son Lorenzo in three days is going to be a primary school boy.

Even if we cared a lot about introducing this new step with joy, trying to instill in him curiosity, he only got he’s going to hell or somewhere similar, he’s not going to have any friend and he will fail the year for sure.

It’s great having such a bright and positive son.

He’s harassing himself and us, these three days will be very long, I hope he will discover school is not this bad.

The first thing I have to do, posting this recipe, is a disclaimer: this recipe comes from the magazine Jamie, Italian issue, it’s good and the soup turns out great BUT for me and all the Italians out there this is and always will be a tomato sauce to season a rich plate of pasta and not something you eat with a spoon.

I’m a mum to a 6 y.o. boy who drinks tomato sauce from the can, you must admit eating it with a spoon is an upgrade then I’ve tried this soup.

There are few things I hate more than long summer week ends at home, I count hours till monday and I keep myself busy with houseworks I can’t stand like refrigerator cleaning and defrosting, pantry  cleaning and organizing.

I had the great idea to trim some of the chili plants I have on my balcony, I cut the dry hot lemon chilis from the plant, I deseeded them to keep seeds then, of course, I washed my hands carefully: after a day and half if I touch my tongue with a finger I can still taste a great spiciness.

Summer is hitting hard now.

Not that it’s strange, we’re in July but working, working out and doing anything requests three times the efforts, I’m exhausted and I’m doing the countdown to summer holidays.

They’re only 1 month far, Thailand is waiting, we’re missing since 2012 and we’re looking forward to see that beautiful country again; this year we have a family friend with us, I think I’ll ask him to baby sit Lorenzo as I aim for visiting a couple of remarkable restaurants in Bangkok, Gaggan and Nahm, I hope to find a spot for two last minute. 😀

Review of Nona restaurant & more, Riccione.

I could name this review ” beautiful things that happen by chance”: I met the owner of this nice place last January at Sigep, I was there with some bloggers and we had a small chat about what and who foodbloggers are.

We exchanged our business cards then we kept on doing our works.

Some time later I received a mail from Nona’s social media agent and we decided to meet and speak about potential partnership.

Blogging is only a hobby for me, I have a family, a job and I’ve been very busy so I could set a meeting at Nona only the past week end.
