Everytime we step out for our little neighborhood walks, me and Princess Giulia hear voices coming from either the end of the street or the corner of the square asking;
"Is she sleeping?"
And my answer is pretty much always the same:
"Yes. She is".
Bar tender: "Is she sleeping?"

When people say that Treatevere is a peculiar Roman neighborhood...well... you better believe it.
All our cross street is deeply sharing our last week of pregnancy and everybody is waiting for Baby Giulia's birth.
Even during our yesterday's breakfast at the bar downstairs...

- For 4 people -
As I promised, here we go with the first Italian recipe.
You ladies better follow step by step and let me know how it goes. Ok?
The main thing to learn is the concept of "soffritto".
The soffritto is the base of 80% of Italian recipes...so you better get it right since the first time!!

Now you tell me.
What am I supposed to wear during my last month of pregnancy with the purpose of not looking like a mix between a porn-star (upper part of my body) and a huge egg (down part of my body)?
At the beginning of my pregnancy I was worried to look more fat than pregnant ( I know I did, even though everybody told me I looked gorgeous - all bastards)
So I bought a bunch of large and cute shirts that were very good at hiding my belly.

First of all I want to make something really clear:
DO NOT EXIST IN THE ITALIAN FOOD TRADITION.
They have not even been mentioned once.
If you do have anything that looks like an Italian passport, well...for sure, you have never heard of them.

Last weekend, we got invited out of the city.
We went to some friends’ country house right in the middle of Umbria.
Umbria is a lovely region close to Tuscany; only one and a half hour away from Rome.
It was a very difficult decision to make…
Me, Husband, big belly and dogs, made up our minds and went to this awful, disgusting place…
