Sadly, when we go to Italy to visit my husband’s family we end up getting the Italian version of the diabetic/low salt/renal diet because of my in-law’s various health problems when we eat in. So we end up going out a lot. We really love getting fresh seafood/fish/moeche/etc. And wine/salami that is made by farmer-friends of my FIL (he used to sell tractors for a living). That is basically 1/2 the reason we make the trip.
p.s. Still can’t comment on your blog. We can only comment on blogspot blogs with the Name/URL option or that have it set up so that there’s a separate comment page and we can click the box at the same time as writing the comment or that don’t have any password/checkbox protection at all. Otherwise we’re stuck in an endless loop of never being able to get to the box checking point. So it’s not that we don’t find what you write interesting, just that we can’t get past the first commenting step.
Maybe. We almost went out and bought one yesterday but then realized that there wasn’t room in the fridge for another big pot until we eat the salsa or 3-bean salad or etc. We have a post upcoming next week about the tyranny of having a good CSA.
