The garden produced a bounty of delights. We feasted, wined, dined and enjoyed the company of good friends and family all summer long.
I hope to post photos and recipes as this blog develops, but for now enjoy a piece of our personal Tuscany.
BR and I agreed today that summer is officially over. He is digging out his big boy pants and I am contemplating the change over of carefree flip flops to proper footwear that will transport me firmly into Fall. So with that, the memories of our Tuscan summer get nestled away and we prepare for Fall.
Well officially, we have celebrated Fall's arrival already with a grand banquet a few days ago, marking the Mid-Autumn festival. BR and I, along with family and many of our friends feasted on tasty delights. You see, mid-Autumn festival is all about family and friends. So, if you are inclined on September the 22nd spend some time with loved ones and enjoy the magic of the harvest moon! Mid-Autumn Festival
This celebration was a preparatory one of sorts. As you read in the title, the second part of this post is The Return from Golden Mountain. We are traveling back to China in a few short weeks. Our journey will take us back to the villages of my parents. We are eagerly awaiting the stories that mom and dad will share as we stroll back through their past with them.
Stay tuned for updates on our travel adventures and culinary delights.
