I've been heading out with my little net bag food shopping every day - and no contrary to popular belief I do not wear a black kerchief and rolled down stockings! Being Ferragosto most of the small shops and stands are closed - in fact most of the city is closed down - but we do have a local supermarket which has a good selection of everything including wines.
Here’s some of the fixin’s for last night’s dinner:
Grilled Garlic and parsley Hamburgers patties
Radicchio, Fennel and Cucumber Salad
Peaches and Grapes
All washed down with a nice little red wine from Friuli and a bottle of mineral water. And that’s a fairly standard evening meal at our place. And both of us have lost a bit of weight – go figure.
