Today I was looking for my Sardenian cheese vendors and also the Sicilian stand. Both were already on vacation and missing. But not to waste the day, we stopped by the local bakery and picked up some Donzelle, the local fried bread, shaped like a tiny baquette and some mortadella to make a sandwich with them.
here is mom in the bread making room next door to the shop
She is brushing oil on their cracker-like schiacchiata
Picked up some pancetta for today's zucchini recipe I am working on and a couple of cute summer tops.
But with the variety of items here, anyone can start a farm!
small plants ready for planting for fall crops- fennel and salad greens
small chili plants already producing chili's- ready to harvest
baby geese- most farms raise their own courtyard animals
the season's bounty for sale direct from farms
Everyday is market day somewhere- so search out the local markets
and get a REAL TASTE of living here.
