Our landlords, dressed in their finest, show up to our house once a month to collect rent.
Wanting to be gracious American hosts, we invite them to the table, offer them a drink.
They always want “just a little” Coke.
Jeff and I, armed with a glass of wine, then sit down to have a chat with them in Italian.
Oh dear! The painful looks on their faces as they listen to us butcher their native language will haunt me for years!
To cut down on the need to talk, I like to keep them occupied by offering a little snack.
These Toffee Diamonds have saved us more than once!
I hope they have a positive impact on your life as well!
