John Nap likes to say that there are two people in this world: Those that live to eat, and those that eat to live. Well, I am on the live to eat train and wanted to share a few of my all-time favorite dishes.

Our favorite photos of Summer 2020

By: The Napolitano Team

The sentiment around here is that Summer 2020 didn't just fly by, it really, really f l e w ! While Covid-19 had dampened and altered many of our summer plans, it didn't stop any one of us on the Nap Team from enjoying the warm weather and life. We (safely) made the most of it and have gathered each team member's favorite photo of the season. Remember, Labor Day is the unofficial ending of summer. There are still a few weeks left to enjoy, so snap a few photos and send them our way, we would love to see them.

Testing 1, 2, 3

It’s challenging to turn on the TV or browse the internet without being subjected to COVID-19 news overload. Long story short, we’re currently vacationing in Maine this week, but we needed to have a COVID test 72 hours prior to arrival in compliance with their current travel restrictions. What seemed like a relatively easy task turned into quite an ordeal. COVID testing sites are available all over MA. However, if you’re getting tested for travel purposes, your options shrink considerably. Many of the testing sites do not have the rapid response function and must send the sample out for processing, which is supposed to take 2-5 days, but are currently taking anywhere from 5-7+ days. My first word of advice is to

Thinking Spring

Spring is here, folks. The days are getting longer, the sun’s warmth is getting stronger and all the tulips and daffodils are bursting out of the ground. Spring has always represented nature’s renewal and rebirth, and this spring (despite all of the COVID-19 limitations and closures) is no different. In fact, because of all the quarantine and social distancing, it seems nature has never had a better spring. Pollution in the cities is so down, you can actually view the cityscapes from afar. Boat traffic in the Venice waterways is so reduced that sea life is visible. With all of us being home, we have had a new appreciation for spring as we have actually had time to stop and smell the roses. And those bird nests that seem to appear overnight, well turns out when you’re home, you actually get to see them being built, and it’s a lot of work. While some of our spring plans have been altered, we are still making the most of it, and as a result have started new traditions and have been able to devote more time to our passions. To see what spring is to us and what we are seeing, sniffing and doing...

What's Cookin'?

During this time of quarantine and social distancing, a lot of focus is being put on meal time. Some of us were getting a little bit bored with the usual weekly menu, so we decided that since we’ve been spending more time in the kitchen cooking, (which we enjoy, it’s the cleaning up that’s the pits) that we would each share a recipe. So in an effort to inspire all you foodies out there, here are a few ideas for you to try out while you’re home too. And please, if you have any great recipes, share it with us, as we could use some culinary inspiration ourselves. Most importantly, if you attempt one of ours listed below, let us know how it turned out! Bon Appetit!
