Eating in Rome: Pizza, Cannelloni or Cannoli...Careful what you Order

After touring the Vatican, we had a chance to try some local food before hopping back on the bus.  What would you try if you were in Italy?

This is the restaurant we tried – Pizzaria Luzzi.  Note the dish called CANNELLONI which is next to last on the menu below. 

Yep, my hubby read it wrong and thought he was ordering a CANNOLI as a dessert.  He ordered it, but the waitress never brought it out.  There was a waiter that walked by our table and Greg asked where our CANNOLI was.  The waiter looked at him kind of funny and said – “you want a CANNELLONI,  that’s a meat dish.”

Oops – how embarrassing!  Good thing the waitress forgot about it!

Lesson learned:  Read the menu closely - if there are extra letters in the word, it's probably not what you think it is :)

I had already downloaded a few art sheets specifically designed for domino size pieces from Etsy (these sheets are really inexpensive). You don’t have to use these, I just chose to.  Leading up to this project, I had already bought jewelry bales, jump rings, and c

25 Things you might not think to bring Cruise Packing List

  Tendering away from the Carnival Spirit Since I just came off my third cruise, I thought I would put together a little cruise packing list.  I was searching on the internet and I came across so many sites that tell you to pack things like bra and underwear – well duh, I don’t need help remembering to pack things like that!   So, this is not your normal cruise packing list, this list contains stuff you might not think to bring.  Please feel free to add anything else you can think of to the comments section of the post.  1.      Walkie Talkies – since you won’t be using your cell phone on the cruise, these would have been invaluable to bring.  Notice I said ‘would have been.’ We were cruising with some friends and there were times that we wanted to get in touch with them, but we had to rely on pure luck to just “run into them . ”    2.      Power Strip – there was only one outlet to plug two items into (and it wasn’t in the bathroom). 3.      Jeans – even if you are go
