Arugula & Bresaula

Thinly sliced bresaula atop a bed of fresh arugula topped with shaved aged parmesan cheese and drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice is a dish we enjoy almost year round.  Add a little salt and pepper and a crisp glass of wine and it's the perfect dish any time of year, but truly best in the summer with fresh arugula from the garden!

Happy Fourth of July!

I purchased this flag at a women's clothing store.  It's either a shawl or a scarf but I bought it because I liked the idea of a cloth flag.  Until I figure out a better place for it, it hangs down from the balcony area of the library.  (Sounds fancy, but the library is just shelves filled with books and DVDs.)

The fun thing about this flag is that they have sewn the tag onto the front side.  I'm not sure if they did this because they didn't know how the flag hangs . ... or who knows why.  The tag reads "Made in Italy".  Anywho/what/where/why, Happy Quattro di Luglio!
