Well, I’ve been away again. I know it is no excuse for not posting, but honest, I’ve been busy! Can you guess where I was?
Maybe this will help:
No? OK, I will tell you. I was in Italy. Yup. I didn’t expect northern Italy the Dolomiti and South Tyrol regions) to look like this, but there was a distinctly “Sound of Music” flavor to the area. Mmm…
How about this?
Too expected? I loved it. This was my first time in Venice and oh, the food! The small restaurant across from the hotel (“It is run by Neapolitans” the desk man told me in a hushed voice) offered the best pizza I think I have ever had, and a (hand cut on a chitarra, no less) pasta with almonds, paper thin zucchini, and caciocavallo… Mmmmmm!!
This post is just a quickie (so to speak) to let you know I’m home safely. The above dish will be featured in my next post (coming very soon I promise!!) with pictures of the original dish and my recreation… but first I have to unpack and get settled back in. I’ve missed all of you – I had a blast but it is soooo good to be home! Yawn…
Until soon, ciao!
