Which works just fine for me. Now, what’s been fancy…? Ciao Italy!ย  After spending the better part of the past 5 months in Italy I will be leaving this lovely country on Monday. I’ve grown to love all the Italian quirks, their coffee, their appreciation of chilling out and slowing life down (….afternoon siesta…long lunch break….the main street is a ghost town between 1 and 4pm!). Don’t fight it. Just go with it. Of course, the FOOD. Goodness me they really know what they’re doing. Simple. Wholesome. Fresh. Food is supposed to be enjoyed, shared with family and friends and of course tasty! I love their passion for doing it right – sitting down to eat, slowly. Enjoy a glass of vino, maybe even a little dessert or biscotti with a short strong coffee. The Italians have fancy under control!

Mushroom soup, served in a bread bowl. Of course. Part of a delicious meal made from all locally sourced ingredients while visiting a small country town on the outskirts of the mountains.

Recipe experimentation ๐Ÿ˜€ This is always fun. Always fancy. And, even more fancy when I create something that that rocks my world. This happened during the week ๐Ÿ™‚ ย GO me. I made a delicious, fudgey, chocolatey brownie. Browniesย that don’t contain refined sugar, gluten, or any other crap *happy dance* Totally fancy. Now before you get too excited….I need to refine the recipe just a bit more before I share it. Bear with me on this one. The wait will be worth it. Promise.

Strong like bull! Me. Strong like Bull….Well….getting there. I’ve been participating in a push up challenge. You may have read about it HERE. I’ve never been any good at full, from your toes push ups. From my knees (aka girl push ups)…no worries…I can do them for days (well…not days, but you know what I mean). This challenge has seen me go from 3 reasonably pathetic push ups (but still proper ones from my toes) to 7 full push ups, in a row, from my toes. I know! And that’s after already doing 3 sets of 5 push ups, from my toes. I KNOW! Fancy.

bring back the guns ๐Ÿ˜‰ …..and the sunshine and palm trees, that’d be nice too.
