Back from vaactioning in the UK and Rome, what can I say? Rome totally spoiled us with wonderful breakfasts of prosciutto ham, wonderful cheeses and the coffee ohhhh myyyyy !!! The UK didn't do too bad either with steak and ale pies, the best fish and chips ever in Whitby, and even jellied eels. What did surprise me was the coffee in the UK when I left those shores 11 years ago all they really used was Nescafe (which btw is a different blend to that in the US) now they have gourmet coffee everywhere we found Costa which is owned by the mighty Whitbread group tastes way better than Starbucks.

Back to daily life now, wish we could have bought some prosciutto home with us *sigh*

A house full of healthy food. And nothing to "eat". Sigh. I want a bowl of pasta. And a big loaf of Italian bread.

Even healthy food can taste good if you put enough sugar, fat, or salt on it.

McDonald's is pretty much ruined for me now. I used to grab a quick, cheap bite there while travelling, but now that the calories of all the menu items glares at me, forget it. I grab a coffee or ice tea and go. I wonder if the calories on the menu board has impqcted their business negatively.

My husband always says, "We don't have any food - just ingredients!"
