food and beauty

Talking of food a little bit more.
tonight I made pizzicotti, yummy!
a deli from my hometown.
I cheated a little bit, I bought the pizza dough, didn't make it.
I made the sauce with garlic, tomato, chilli, black pepper and a delicious pecorino made by my father-in-law. Fast, easy and delicious.

Also I made two homemade facial masks.
the first one with honey, one egg and olive oil.
this works as a scrub.

the second one with yogurt and grapefruit to refresh the skin.
not sure I needed to refresh it, but it was kind of nice to spread it after the scrub.

friends for dinner

Penne with salmon - fresh and smoked - with yogurt instead of cream.
Tortino with spinach, ricotta and salmon. This time the dough has yeast.
baked potatoes and mache with cranberries and pieces of pecorino.
He has cooked and seasoned every dish, let's hope it's tasty.
cannoli for dessert - frozen from Trader Joe's. Never had them before. Not sure I'll have them tonight.

The table is set, outside it's pouring rain, I walked only half an hour today because of my husband's laziness, he did not want to walk the second lap.

More than anything else I'd like to sleep.
