  1. uno straordinario fiore per onorare la festa di San Giuseppe, sono lieta che anche in USA si conservino le belle tradizioni italiane…ricordi che qui da noi si festeggia con frittelle e bomboloni? ( oltre che con la gara ciclistica Milano SanRemo…ma non so se sei un appassionato)
    buon San Giuseppe caro John!!!

  2. Happy St Joseph’s Day John! Here it is almost over . . . but trust you will wear something red tomorrow and have Pasta con Sarde on the menu, followed by sfinci of course – or will it just be your beloved cannoli 🙂 ? Love your music choice . . . well, he did come well before me, but I actually remember Louis Prima . . . oh, and am so glad the beautiful blossom did open for you . . . have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Love the Louis Prima – makes me want to watch Big Night. Perhaps pasta con le sarde is an option… Didn’t realize it was a traditional meal for today. (Jeez, I wish I were Italian by blood!)

    • When you looked up pasta fazoo, I’m sure you learned that it’s an east coast derivation for Paste e Fagioli, pasta & beans. It just so happens that I’ve a great recipe for this stick-to-your-bones meal and it’s become a favorite of my Zia. I make it for her whenever we’re together. Just click on the recipe name that follow: Pasta and Bean Soup
      I hope you do make it. You’re in for a real treat. 🙂


  4. Belated greetings to you John! Was with my dad yesterday and he was remembering with a chuckle being in Roma for illustration día di San Giuseppe as in the centre the set up a kind of fair along a mainstream and for hime the highlight was his favourite – the doughnut stalls! He said he used to make his way along the street trying out as many as he could afford ☺ Loved the song xx

  5. I don’t know nearly enough about St. Joseph’s Day. I see in the comments about wearing red. I’ll have to become more informed! I love the song and hearing Louis Prima is a treat. And the crocus? Gorgeous, John. I hope spring is here to stay!
