I have been in nothing but a hurry since school started after Labor Day. My husband had surgery on his arm. He is doing well. My daughter joined the Field Hockey team and both of my kids need to be driven to their fencing class twice a week... oh, yeah, and all of those doctors appointments that I put off, because who wants to go to the doctors in the summer!

Southern Italians have a strong connection with Africa. Physically it is so close. Many of us have African blood pulsing through our veins. My oldest sister has always had a strong affinity with African culture, especially it's dance.

Sipping a glass of Fiorfiore organic white wine on a beautiful Autumn afternoon I am transported to the rolling hills of the Roccafiore Vineyard and Spa in the Umbria region of Italy.

Pardina Lentils a version of French Lentils # Weekend Bites ( formally Foodie Friday) #French Fridays with Dorie
I have truly been meaning to get back to my regular blogging schedule, but September has been a busy month. Last night I attended a cooking demonstration at the The Daily Meal with Chef Kerry Heffernan, formally of NYC's famed Eleven Madison Park restaurant . He made some really interesting dishes from local and wild fish/fowl and herbs of Long Island where he lives. Check out the menu. I never even heard of whelk or knew you could eat bluefish cheeks?

I had just come down from the cool Andes Mountains into the Amazon basin town of Puerto Maldonado. It was so hot and humid you could cut the air with a machete.
It is only in the last year or so that I have discovered the wonders of salad for lunch. It is healthy, low in calories, and because it is not loaded with carbohydrates it helps to keep you from being tired in the late afternoon.
