A Roman Holiday Staycation..a Recipe for Tramezzini..See You at Casa Casale!

The official start to the unofficial beginning of summer is finally here…”as tasty as summer’s first peach” my favorite saying comes to mind!. I know most are thinking of barbecues this weekend but for me  it is all about the lush fresh fruits and vegetables….Mother nature is now at her very best!

Have your own Roman Holiday Staycation at home and avoid the crowds..pair the (one of my favorite) movie with tramezzini and you have an easy way to enjoy a vacation at home.

Princess Ann, played by Oscar-winner Audrey Hepburn in her first starring role, screams and becomes hysterical one night in Rome, the last stop on her European “Goodwill Tour” in Roman Holiday (1953)

“Life isn’t always what one likes, is it?” But, you can pretend, if only for a little while. Try the elegant tramezzini sandwiches, and you’ll feel like royalty. With the gooey, fresh mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, and tasty basil, you may as well be sitting at an outdoor café in Rome with Princess Ann. Take a break from your life and try this tasty little food with the movie.
