Saturday’s Market

2 Aug

Missing Italy, and missing the usual Saturday mercato, we headed to our local city market early this morning.

Although we were tempted en route…

we resisted, reminding ourselves of the morning pastry ritual we had decided to leave behind.

So on we went in search of what we would grill tonight, and we were not disappointed…

Even the sun flowers were there to greet us…

When we got home, our purchases looked like a beautiful watercolor…

For lunch, I made a barley and farro salad with some of the veggies.

Now if only I can stay awake long enough to cook dinner!

    Welcome home. May the culture shock not be too painful! Those veggies look like they could have been harvested near Cortona. Yummy! I have looked forward to your postings. They have whetted my appetite for our trip next month. Your visit has been similar to what we look forward to experiencing…the easy, peaceful Italian everyday life. Thank you for sharing it with us, Barbara
