First and foremost, I want to apologize for not
posting my ususal Fabiolous Tuesday posting
last Tuesday. I had intention of letting you
know beforehand and was so busy I never got
around to it. Also, I decided to post my trip
to Calabria today in lieu of the meat from the
last post. No worries - I still plan to post a
recipe for that just not today. My wife and I
drove 700 km south to the beautiful region
of Calabria where my in-laws reside.
Sunny and HOT day!!
