Well we are back!

Much recreating was achieved on our hiatus last week,

and it looks like the weather came back to town with us!

Here’s a little of what we did last week….

We realized that Sonoma looks a lot like Tuscany..


I bicycled to the ocean and back, 40 miles round trip.


The girls soaked up some sun.


I couldn’t resist the fresh farm eggsIMG_2236

there was no way I could go a whole week without making pasta
IMG_2242and Pilar loved here little taste of farm life!

…..As fantastic as it was,

We are glad to be back!

On the Menu today:

Mafaldine, with braised beef ragu

Conchiglie, with basil parsley pesto

Spaghettini, alla Siciliana
