Antico Forno

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

copyright 2008 Susan Turtz

In our recent trip to Boston we visited one of our favorite restaurants in the North End. (The traditionally Italian Section of Boston).

Antico Forno
93 Salem St. North End
Boston, MA 617-723-6733

When you walk into Antico Forno, the first thing that will strike you is the noise. Happy diners seem to love to chatter. As soon as your friendly server approaches and gives you bread and a wonderful white bean spread, you’ll be one of the group.

We started with Caprese (with fresh buffalo mozzarella) and a Caesar salad. Two appetizers fed three of us with leftovers.

We then went on to linguine chock full of clams, pizza and pasta with homemade sausage and mozzarella.

Everything was generous and delicioso.

Almost everything is finished in their high-heat brick oven, which gives a lovely crusty topping.

Make a reservation so you won’t be disappointed. And don’t do what we did — leave room for dessert!

New Found Health Help!

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

I don’t see other such postings, but I stayed in one of your homes and enjoyed it very much. Your whole network seems to be health conscious and the home in which I stayed was the most organically conscious place I’ve been. So I thought I would share my recent experience with a urinary infection and my husbands with kidney stones.

We ate organic blueberries for a couple days – lots of them. My urinary infection cleared and my husband passed his kidney stones.

It isn’t a great deal, but I wanted to contribute something of my experiences, in line with what I experienced in your network house.

My First Blog (Updated)

Friday, June 20th, 2008

For reasons I don’t know, we were thinking about Orelia this morning and re-read her blog.  Orelia died in 2012 in June having lived an incredible life.  We are remembering her today and want to share some of her thoughts, which she shared with us in 2008,  with you.

Orelia Ledbetter

I really don’t understand the meaning of the word “blog”, but I’ll do my best.

Having reached the ripe old age of 92 through God’s divine grace, I am wiser about my living, but weaker in flesh. What should I say about my 92 years traveling among human beings?

I have lived through the death of a still-born (female child), a miscarriage, a beloved son and the death of a husband to Alzheimer’s. I believe my mission during these years was the gift of patience to listen to people in all phases of life, in joy and in sorrow and to remind them that God, the Holy Spirit, moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. Also to keep hope and faith in the Great Spirit who holds us in the palm of His hand – (yes, we are tatooed there).

God has allowed me to witness four grandchildren graduate from College in recent years, allowed me to be healthy, to enjoy a rich and full life in its beauty on earth.

I am grateful.

To the Bettina home in which I stayed – the beauty of your connection with God through your colorful garden and flowers brings joy to my heart as I remember your peace found in the response to your care.

Peace – Shalom
