Sunday afternoon my friend Steve and I drove downtown to look for the Toynbee tiles.
He’d seen a documentary about them but that ‘s another whole post for tomorrow. I want to read more about them and view the documentary myself before I write about seeing them. We found three. Stay tuned……
We decided to check out the baseball game and considered getting a last minute ticket. (Note how full the stands are these days!)
Here is the view of PNC Park from the Roberto Clemente Bridge above the Allegheny River.
Later in the evening we met some neighbors at the Saint Rocco Festival in Morningside at St. Rafael. There was singing and dancing the Tarantella. We ate a meatball sandwich and looked at the beautiful handmade cookies in the baskets. I asked the name of the cookies and the woman said Taralli. I went to my favorite authentic Italian recipe blogger, Chicago John and searched for a recipe for these particular cookies and didn’t find one but I am hopeful he’ll have one. Here’s a recipe I was able to find for now.
The evening ended in fireworks and lots of smoke.
Some of you may have seem my post of the Festival last year when there was a full moon. Just clouds this year.
