One month ’til Christmas

Bauli wins hands down for this year’s xmas bread commercial and I have no doubt that there are plenty others who feel the same as I do. Just looking at this little girl sinking her teeth into a slice of pandoro makes me want to run out and get a pandoro (or two) for the holidays. Slathered with mascarpone, thank you very much.

Happy Birthday Mads!

Maddie's 10th birthday

Part ambassador (ambassadress!), silly flirt, and head of the welcome committee. Today she makes 10 years old. Tanti auguri Miss Maddie! And for you westie lovers, here’s a tv spot starring one of Maddie’s cousins once removed, Guess Diva. We still keep in touch with the breeder via social network and the burning question is: how much is the pay? Too late now for the Mads but if we get another westie, maybe I should hire an agent.

Raise your hand if you could EVER give up chocolate

I can only trust my imagination that there aren’t a whole lotta hands on the other side of my screen, but unless a hunger strike is involved, how could anyone give up chocolate?! Least of all, Italy’s favorite miller?


Rosita, non mi dire niente
Rosita, don’t say anything
io al cioccolato non rinuncio!
I will not give up chocolate!
Ma cosa ci inventiamo…?
But what are we going to invent…?
Ma certo, il vapore!
But of course, steam!
Ecco, i chicchi di cioccolato
Here, Chicchi di cioccolato
con meno grassi perchè cotti con il vapore.
with less fat because baked with steam.
Cosi, si mangia senza pensieri
That way, you can eat them without worries

I thought I was done with the cheesy chicken commercials until a promo for their Cantastorie collection (ceramic cups, bowls, etc) caught my attention. Buy 3 (products) and get 1 free gift, or buy 4 and get 2. It was an easy call.
