I was going to write today about the wonderful meals that I enjoyed while I was in Italy but I think that will wait for my next blog! I have so many feelings about the food I enjoyed I truly don’t know where to begin! Except to say I was incredibly spoiled while I was there!
But let’s start with breakfast first before I talk about lunch and dinner while I was in Italy! It is all about the sweets for me! You don’t think that it is coincidence that I raise money for breast cancer one sweet at a time. Ever since I was a kid I loved sweets for breakfast. If I could have gotten away with eating Oreo’s for breakfast before I went to school, I would have! But muffins, chocolate babka , danish, and any other breakfast pastry was and is an ideal breakfast for me! For some reason it is only when I travel that I allow myself this indulgence which is something I think I need to rethink especially with some of the breakfast pastries I have seen locally!
Here I am in Italy and some mornings before I went to the market, I would stop for fresh squeezed orange juice, a cappuccino, and pastry at one of the bars on the way! Each pastry or donut was fresh and delicious. If they say a picture is worth a thousand words, these pictures are priceless! I remember the taste of each!
