We went the week of The Grand Prix and never even thought about The Grand Prix! The Main.St -Laurent..was blocked off and all the side arteries~ Oh lala..we had to park far from Milano and the resto..but the walk was fun..so many Fiats:) And people! There was a joy in the air.. the terrasses lined the road..Jean-Talon..the tents..the cars..Believe me I am not a car person..But I have become a Fiat person.And seeing the vintage ones was such a treat:) Not to mention finally seeing some of Milano's renovations..It looks great! More kitchen paraphenalia.. Really nice..I was able to pick up certain items they only have..and we were greeted as nicely as ever.
At our resto we had the fresh lasagne and vongole pasta..This was a carbonara we had the last time.I am a pasta nut. All their pastas are quite edible:) This is not the terrasse where we ate..but it is in that area~ At Milano..I can get lovely products.. like this colorful pasta,, Evoos, .. Gnocchis:)(N and D)..My moisturizer that I first bought in Italy and tried on for the first time in the villa in San Gimignano~Actually some say Olive Oil is just as good~
This brand is now found at my Costco also..We like it very much.I have mentioned it before.Olive Oil should leave a peppery after taste,at the back of your throat,,perhaps peppery is not the right word~But you feel something.
I have liked going to Little Italy for a long time.But must admit since seeing the real thing..I love it even more..
Undoubtedly one of my many favorite vistas is the one above..It was surreally calm,the expanse glorious..and looked like a painting~It kind of looked like it would be heavenly to live there...It was a fun project to try and paint this little vignette when I came back as the cover of our photo album~
I'd like to remedy the fact that I just stood still..as I do love watercolors..and have paper..pencils..brushes..pans. journals,pads .:)
I appreciate everything I see and learn..
I will share something with you soon that has to do with art and journaling in a way...It may inspire some of you.
It is inspiring me~
