I’ve been slacking for a bit on the Italian updates. But in honor of dear ole St. Joseph, I thought it only fitting that I hop back on the band wagon. Nothing new in the arena of my Italian citizenship, but hopefully soon I’ll get into gear and find a loophole to move that along.
Two days ago, I celebrated my lack of Irish heritage with a little St. Patrick’s Day fun. I will celebrate anything. Apparently, March 23 is National Puppy Day. Perhaps that means I should go get a puppy?? Hmmm, I wish.
Well, today is St. Joseph’s Day. And in honor of my Sicilian heritage, I will celebrate! The festivities aren’t quite as fun as St. Patrick’s day, but whatevs. Tonight I will make sfinge. (Recipe posted here last year.) I have also been wanting to check out the Italian church in downtown LA. They apparently have Mass in Italian every Sunday and I’ve never made it down there. They have a huge St. Joseph’s Table every year and it lasts all weekend. So, if my plan works out, I will wake up on Sunday morning and venture downtown for some Italian church and food.
And here’s a random Italian phrase to use this weekend… adding this to the pick-up line bank.
Il mio bicchiere si sente solo. Vorresti tenergli compagnia con il tuo?
• My drink is getting lonely. Would you like to join me with yours?
Use it well, my friends. And Buon la Festa di San Giuseppe!
