Who knew relaxation could be so exhausting!


The work week is punctuated by the “weekend”

-a nice little exclamation point at the end of a 5 day long “sentence”. (all homonyms apply here) 

But sometimes,

your quest to make that final punctuation an actual exclamation point

can turn out to be more effort than the relaxation/pleasure payoff.

You are left with that “I need a vacation from my vacation” feeling.


I officially dub today:

The “Weekend-end”

It is the comforting return to routine, after a long weekend.

-and Rigatoni alla Bolognese

is in love with it right now.

Rigatoni bolo

Also today:

Pappardelle, with gorgonzola and toasted walnuts

Mafaldine, with olives, garlic, mama lil’s peppers, celery and capers
