Leave the Gum, Take the Cannoli

these napkins are 100 percent recycled

First of all, I mean no disrespect to all of you diehard fans of “The Godfather” movies. I know the true quote is:

“Leave the gun, take the cannoli.”

But it’s a bit too violent, wouldn’t you agree? So just for fun, I changed gun to gum!

I took this picture at a Whole Foods Market in the San Francisco Bay Area. But the napkin holder, with its French message (“Save the planet and your smile, one napkin at a time”) along with an Italian chocolate chip cannoli made me think I was somewhere else, miles away from home…

I imagined I was at a sidewalk café in Paris sitting on a wicker bistro chair.

Next I imagined what cannoli in Italy would taste like!

Then lunch time ended…Back to reality.

What foods do you eat at home have the ability to transport you to another place or time? Tell me in the comments below!


  1. I love cannoli. If I had to pick a food that transports me to another place, I guess it would be a fabulous steak. When it’s prepared right, I can’t help but remember a dinner once shared with my family in Charleston, SC at Hall’s Chop House. Hall’s was a delightful restaurant and they had the best cuts of steak anywhere around!

    1. I love steak, especially cooked medium well with a side of garlic mashed potatoes! How do you like yours cooked? If I’m ever in Charleston, SC, I’ll have to check out Hall’s Chop House!
