Onomastico


My neighbor, Valentino came to the door this morning bearing these ricotta filled ravioli. Today is Onomastico* for those named Valentino/a. Since there is no saint bearing the name Sharon, Valentino has shared his name with me for the last fifteen or so years. For today and every Feb 14th, I am named Valentina!

A belated Happy Valentine's Day. I hope your day was filled with much warmth -- in your tummy (and it sure looks like it) and in your heart.
