Sunday Sauce and SInatra

FRANK SINATRA

"COME FLY With ME"


It's an old tradition in my family, that most Sunday the Bellino Family gathers together and we eat Sunday Sauce Italian Gravy. The whole family gets together and Grandma House, or Aunt Helen's, but mostly at Aunt Fran's House in Lodi, New Jersey. It's a wonderful all day affair, starting with a little antipasto, followed by the star of the show, Sunday Sauce. Aunt Fran or Aunt Helen usually make the Sauce (Gravy), which is the most supreme dish of all. It's a long simmered tomato sauce laden with special meat treats, that include: Sausages, Meatballs, and Braciole. We eat it with short maccheroni, usually rigatoni. "It's the Best Thing ever," we all just love it, and who wouldn't, it's so damn tasty, it is.

After the Sunday Sauce, it's on to dessert and coffee, which is a 3 or 4 hour affair, as the grownups sit around the table drinking Espresso (with Anisette) and eating all the tasty desserts that's made of a whole array of sweet treats, like: Aunt Fran's Ricotta Cookies, Cannoli, Sfogliatelle, and whatever sweets that other visitors might bring. And there's a whole lot of talking about this that and every other thing: sports, politics, gossip and what not, all as Frank Sinatra records play softly in the background. Always. Aunt Wanda loves Jerry Vale, and Dino has his turn too. Those were warm and wonderful days spent with loved ones, and sadly all of the older generation is gone, and we miss them dearly. But me, I think of them often, and especially when it comes to Sundays, eating all day long, cahtting and having fun, eating maccheroni, sausage, Meatballs, and Braciole, listening to Sinatra, and loving it all. My cousins Joe, Tony, and I keep it going. We try to organize as many get-together s as we can, always centered around food, whatever it may be: fresh fish, pasta, Steak, and our all-time favorite Sunday Sauce. And don't forget Sinatra, Francis Albert that is. Or just simply Frank. 

Basta !

Everything Happens to Me Album Sinatra





FRANK SINATRA

EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME


Everything Happens to Me is a 1996 compilation album by Frank Sinatra.
The album EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME came about as a conversation between Frank Sinatra and his daughter Tina asking Frank about his favorite songs. Tina asked her father if he would want to put together an album of these his favorite songs, the result was Everything Happens to Me, produced by Tina Sinatra in 1996.

FRANK SINATRA

ALL MY TOMORROWS


ALL MY TOMORROWS is one of those songs that Frank Sinatra could sing better than anyone whose ever recorded the song. The musical arrangement with beautiful violin tracks is poignant beyond all poignancy . "All My Tomorrows" as sung by the great Frank Sinatra is a song so sweet and lovely, and beautiful beyond belief.

"I've got lots of plans for Tomorrow, and all my Tomorrows belong to you."

"No one knows better than I, that love keeps passing me by."

"But with you there by my side, I'll be turning that tide."

"As long as I've got arms that cling at all, it's you I'll be clinging to."


Sinatra in the song pours out his heart for the women he loves, and how all his hopes and desires for his love and their life together, "on some bright tomorrow. All my bright tomorrows belong to you." Wow, is that something.


Yes "ALL MY TOMORROWS" by Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded in the history of the World. "Thank You Frank," for this, and all of your incomparable love songs. You where the Best.
