Lunch anyone?

25 Jun

Wish you could have joined us for a simple yet wonderful lunch at Casa Gingerella. As mentioned earlier, we ordered the chicken at the market this morning and picked it up a few hours later, roasted and cut.  In the meantime, we shopped for the bread, tomatoes, pecorina and Orvieto. Ah, life’s simple pleasures, especially since I didn’t have to clean the chicken!

Buon Appetito!

    Personally, I like pecorino fresco better…but the schiacciata in the picture has my full endorsement.
    Too bad Frances Mays got there first because I never felt that she really captured the authentic essence of Tuscany–the way I am sure you can! Enjoy la bella Toscana! Un abbraccio grande!

    You two look healthy and great – the simple life is certainly the way.

    Hi Judy and Len,

    Funny, I just said to Larry “Oh – let’s check and see what Judy and Len did today”. We are really enjoying your blog. Your lunch sounded divine, and the tablecloth is beautiful. If I remember correctly, Cortona had exquisite Italian linens. I also remember I have never eaten so much wonderful food and had so much wine and didn’t gain a pound – so I am with you there.

    Our dinner in your honor was very good. We tried to make your pasta with garlic and olive oil that is your “signature dish” as Len would say. I finally found a recipe for Spaghetti with Oil and Garlic that was pretty good. Yours, of course was better probably because you’re Italian and know what you are doing without a recipe. We also had a salad of watercress, prosciutto, pecorino and tomatoes with olive oil and balsalmic vinegar. I have to admit, I had this salad in Honfleur, France and loved it, so I decided to try it myself. Larry liked it and so did I, so I guess I did okay. Even though I had it in France, the ingredients were very Italian.

    I have responded to your individual emails, but my responses are not getting through to you. So if it something anyone can see, I’ll just post here. If not, I’ll have Florence send it or figure it out when we get home. FL is great – hot, but great.
