Odd Christmas gifts

It’s made of cheese…need I say more???

This year I participated in my first Christmas house party. Mind you the woman who invited me is American, but like the other guests, she has been in Italy a very long time and well I guess you could say that the Italian culture has certainly rubbed off a bit on this group.

We did a gift exchange and the most popular item to be exchanged over and over again was a very long salami. It would never have occurred to me to give someone a foot long salami as a Christmas gift but obviously this item inspired many jokes and a good time.

The piggy cheese above would have made a nice complement to the salami, I’ll have to stock pile these ideas for next year ; )

    Posso dire …santo cielo!? Non so che faccia potrei fare, se qualcuno mi regalasse un maiale di formaggio. A prima vista, sembra una saponetta..il che però non è che sia molto meglio, eh!

    Food is always welcomed, and cheese, not so sure about the salami, but would definitely take the cheese and let’s make sure to have good coffee to go with it.

    I have been stalking your blog ever since I discovered it to see if you had posted something new and finally decided to make the request myself. Your posts are so funny and I like them, so won’t you write one soon, please? 🙂
