Food 'n Flix: Under the Tuscan Sun ROUNDUP

My film choice for hosting Food 'n Flix this month was an all-time favorite chick-travel-food flick, Under the Tuscan Sun. From the first time I watched this movie, I've wanted to move to Tuscany...although I prefer mine to happen without the major life change that led Frances there.  Unfortunately, it's not all that simple to uproot the family, figure out how to transport us and our most cherished belongings, and our putty-tats to Tuscany.  We don't know anybody.  We'd have nowhere to live.  We don't speak Italian (though I think knowing Spanish will help...seeing how they're both romance languages...many words are close).  Know what?  If somebody offered us the opportunity...we'd go anyway.  Surely our very own Bramasole waits for us.

Thanks so much to everybody who watched the film and drew inspiration in the kitchen with me this month.  Let's see what everybody came up with!
-----------------------------------------------

Tina from Life in the Slow Lane at Squirrel Head Manor made an Italian Meal that included mouthwatering Bruschetta and Pasta with Italian flavors and of course a bottle of wine. Delicious!

My (Heather from girlichef) comforting Tuscan White Bean Soup helped to satisfy the"yearning for the sun" that I always feel after watching this film!

Ali from Jam Hands went the way of pasta as well with some Goat Cheese, Avocado, and Slow Roasted Tomatoes Penne .
Maria from Cocina Diary chose to make Spaghetti Limone Parmiggiano because it is bright, simple, and happy and that reminds her of Frances and her journey.

Next up is this beautiful Watermelon Sorbet from Deb at Kahakai Kitchen...tell me it doesn't just SCREAM "summer in Tuscany"!

Eating this gorgeous dish of Garlic and Greens Spaghetti...and apparently channeling my dreams...Kim from Stirring the Pot had a little "escape" time while watching this flick.

Danielle from All Things Yummy watched Under the Tuscan Sun for the first time and soaked up the excuse to make some delicious Italian-inspired food... Tomato Bruschetta and Tuscan Lemon Chicken, to be exact.

When Ana from Anasbageri watches the film, it makes her think of past summers with hard work and simple delicious food with friends and family...I'd definitely sit back and relax with a dish of this beautiful Zabaglione Gelato w/ Lime & Blueberries.

I'm happy to have Roz from la bella vita joining in F 'n F this month with this super-thick, super-Tuscan Bistecca Fiorentina that her and her hubby shared for a Memorial Day meal.
