Oh, now I know what it is! And I confirm you that I love it! It has a very Italian name, but not common here. Usually it is called 'risoni', literally meaning 'big grains of rice'.
This is strange... 'orzo' is the Italian word for the English word 'barley'. What is 'orzo' for you: a special type of rice, barley or something else? Looking at your wonderful picture, your orzo does not look like barley. Anyway, congratulations! I would also like to taste this fancy "chicken"!
I like all these pictures, but my favorite is Little Pea eating the red plate. It reminds me of Nicky eating the high-chair tray (hopefully this is the right word). You are a wonderful Mom, your Peanuts are very lucky! Baci

Yes, I am. I took pictures only with my iPhone on Tuesday. I hope they are not too blurred but I am not going to edit them. Today I am using Nicky's point-and-shoot (my previous Casio), my iPhone and hopefully 'my baby' (the DLRS). Nicky is participating taking some pictures. As you know, his point of view matters.
I have found it really difficult as well. I do not manage to capture a specific assignment on each specific day, so I have decided to take pictures when I can, even if it means 5 assignments in one single day. But I am learning SO MUCH!!! Her photo tips are crystal-clear. She is teaching me everything I need to start shooting in manual. Great Workshop!

WOW, what a question! I prefer Option 1, but Option 2 is a moment in your life. I suggest you choose depending on your goal. Maybe you can take another picture with the same subject in another week. Baci*
Yes, I am! Yesterday I saw the link in your blog and I subscribed. I'm particularly interested in photo inspiration. We'll see the results.
I'll participate with Nicky. Baci *
How is it possibile that a rainbow is upside down? I've saved the photo thinking about God's smiling down on all of us. Do you mind me using it for my FB profile?

What I definitely LOVE in the second picture is the "adoration" that can be read in Little Pea's eyes. This is true love! Look at how they hold their little hands. Soooo sweet! What makes me smile is that while the second picture seems captured in an ideal world, where everything is peacefully quiet, happy and pink, looking back at the first picture I read terror in Little Pea's eyes! This made me reconsider my opinion of the picture taken in an ideal world...
She is SO cute!!! I love her blue eyes! And look at those cheeks! As your Dad says "she's a chubby little thing". I love this definition!

This site is great! I'm going to add it to Evernote so I can check it out tomorrow or on Sunday. Then I'll copy the checklist and I'll start it - hopefully soon. My objective for 2010 was (well... IS) "Get organized" and up to now I'm pretty satisfied of the results.
I've installed it on my iPhone. Now I'm downloading it on my PC. Can't wait to REALLY start using it!!! I must-must-must get deeper into it. Baci *
Now I'm curious to read (or see) how they exchange comments about their idioms. I remember the time we've spent comparing English and Italian. Not to talk about Italians talking with their hands! We laughed so much about this!!!! LOL

Right: I expected you served tiramisu! But I understand it takes time and the right ingredients. Yesterday I had one of the best tiramisu I've ever had. Delicious!!!!!!!! I thought of you of course.

I've read the full Millennium trilogy and I've seen the first movie based on the books. I'm not going to add any other comments until you tell me if you have seen the movie. ;-)
Fantastica! I love your sunglasses!!!!

What I love in this picture is the halo on his head... "Holy Handyman Tim". The "Noodles" logo is just behind him and it looks like painted on his head. Is it by chance our you asked him to stop in that exact position?

I wanted to add a thumbnail but I ended up with adding a new Project. Feel free to remove one of the 2. Get well soon... Baci.
Oh no... Get well soon! A very Happy Easter to you and your family.

I love all these songs... "You've got a friend in me" is the song from Toy Story, Nicky's favorite movie! He can't wait to see Toy Story 3. * Baci e abbracci *

Oh Tiffy!! These songs are so funny!!! But I love all of them! "That's amore" is one of the songs that reminds me of you. I still have the lyric we printed out more than 10 years ago! I remember Luigi saying that Dean Martin's parents were Italian while you were singing the song! Oh my goodness...! Paolo Conte is a surprise. Is he famous in the States? Actually in this song he is singing "La Comedie", which is French!!! The title "Come di" is Italian but it's not what he is saying! :D I don't know Patrizio Buanne. His songs are a mix of Neapolitan and American. :D Oh mamma' me voglio marita'...! means Oh Mom, I want to get married! Baci *
