Tuna Sandwich

This open-faced sandwich was sooooo good -- and sooooo simple to make! I titled it "Tuna Sandwich" but there's much more than tuna going on here. I first toasted a slice of hearty bread and then sliced fresh tomato onto the bread and sprinkled a bit of salt on the slices. Then a layer of fresh basil leaves, some buffalo mozzarella, a sprinkling of tuna packed in water (minus the water, of course) and then some finely chopped red onion. oh, and the real clincher is to drizzle e.v.o.o. (how foodnetwork is that?) and balsamic vinegar on top before enjoying.

Chiesa San Niccolo

This is the inside of my little church Chiesa San Niccolo, Church of Saint Nicholas. Hey, this could be Santa's church. I digress, it's on the end of the monastery structure that contains three apartments, one of which is mine. Although it's open every Sunday for prayers and/or viewing, mass is held only once a year on Christmas Eve. I have yet to see anyone inside this church on a Sunday other than my cats and the neighbor's dog, Leo.
