A day of eating

One of the joys of living in Umbria is the friends I have made.

Yesterday, together with Paola, Irish and Paolo I lunched with Max and Licia, their kids Pietro and Bianca under the shade of a majestic tree in their garden.  Licia served the most divine pasta in a home made pesto sauce, followed by melon and just picked cherries still warm from the sun.  The conversation flowed, and for a change as well as discussing food, was also about the recent elections, seemingly much to ruminate over…

Last night I was invited by my neighbours Donatella and Gianpiero to join them at Donatella’s brother’s seafood restaurant ‘La Conchiglia’ at nearby Fossato di Vico.  I was treated to a vast assortment of fish, all freshly brought up from Pesaro.  Wow they certainly know how to cook fish, mouthwateringly delicious, and what a variety.  Definitely a place to reccomend to guests.

To make up for yesterday’s excesses I’m off to shovel sand into the vast hole around the now full water tanks, ready for them to be covered on monday.  More of that later…
