... pan fried rabbit with olives and roasted potatoes. Dolci was a torte. She paired each course with a different wine from this area. We learned new recipes and techniques that we, (mostly Tom) will be able to make again when we return home.

Italian Birthday Adventures

Tomorrow we have our Tuscan cooking class,so be ready for more pictures of food! ...

... she broke through the barrier between tired and hysterical. It took a loong time to do homework because she couldn't write one word without descending into a fit of laughter. Still, while this was tiring to deal with, it was significantly more agreeable than Millo's mood. I'm hoping that they are both going to sleep well tonight so that tomorrow they are both back to their normal selves. I think it's a long shot but keep your fingers crossed for me.
