It's right. There is nothing like pizza

In USA..pizza hut is good but, yes, it's very different from our Italian pizza.

and you? what's you favorite Texan food?

In texas..I remeber to have had a good lunch, when I was to Amarillo at Big texan.

Do you know it?
And did you take them up on their challenge to eat the giant steak and all the trimmings? LOL!!!

My mom and sister said that there was no comparison between real European Italian food and what passes for Italian food in the states. I've never eaten at a good so-called Italian restaurant in the US. I thought pizza was an American invention...I guess not, LOL! Does the real Italian pizza bear any resemblance at all to American pizza?

I tasted a simple steak, not giant

About Italian food, yes, for me it's the best and it's different if you eat Italian food there and here in Italy.

I like American food also

Are you live in a desert city?
Yes El Paso is a Desert City.. today it is a nice 79 degrees, last night it was a warm 72 so the kids had a nice Halloween. El Paso is very disconnected with the rest of its state.. one of the reasons some like it and I don't.. I like being connected and the ability to explore other cities near by.

All I can say is that spaghetti is the greatest Italian food that I have ever eaten. Put extra meat sauce on top along with some Parmesan cheese and you've got yourself a nice dinner.

Oh..it's very warm!!!

Yes, next year, when I was to Texas, I want going to El Paso but it's very, very far to do by car.
I have seen the possibility to go there by plane but it was very expensive.


What has been the costume of your kids?

here..me and my hubby




Have a great Sunday!

Minniemouse...I'm surprised you didn't dress up as your log in name!! Also, I thought Italians didn't celebrate Halloween. You both look adorable.

Pittsburgh is a GREAT city, but just too cold for me. We get a lot of snow in the Winter. It is 30 degrees F at night and 40's during the day right now. No snow yet, but it will soon be here. I love warm weather, one of the BIG reasons why I'm moving to Texas.

The Italian pizza resembles the American pizza but tastes SO MUCH better. They use fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese on their pizzas and all fresh ingredients--nothing canned or processed. Fresh salami (pepperoni), artichokes, mushrooms, peppers.... Their sauce is out of this world--molto bueno! (very good). And they are all made in one of those big ovens with the fire underneath...no electrical conveyer belt like here! Oh my gosh...I am really missing Italy right now. Their crust is different too.
