Oh, sweet Italia ~

Enjoy the simple life – be sweet, eat well, love – v


A friend recently wrote of her biking excursions through Aviano ~ instead of feeling jealous, I was so happy that she has embraced the lifestyle of this amazing country.  I closed my eyes and imagined a jaunt down Viale S Giorgio, to the Tuesday market for cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, fragrant flowers (roses, 3 euro per 20!)… watching in amazement, as the 83 year old woman from the same village, rode past me with her baskets filled with market treasures!  Hmmm ~ the smells, smiles and occasional whistle. Would I serve the Pecorino tonight, sliced in thin ribbons with the grilled peaches, topped off with a drizzle of Pietro’s honey? Or a tallegio filled zucchini ribbon with the sweet salty hint of prosciutto hidden inside?
