Halcyon days….che bella!

Yet another delightful dinner outside on the terrace here at Bellaugello Gay Guesthouse in Umbria, Italy.  I was in the mood for cooking and made the delicious risotto with the recipe given to me by my good friend Max, flavoured with gorgonzola and pears, it is simply delightful, and which we followed with a slow roast loin of pork stuffed with fresh herbs from the garden, new potatoes from nearby Città di Castello, and as they are just so very beautiful at the moment, aubergine parmigiana.

Desert was melon ice cream, I decorated the glasses with rose coloured sugar and loaded small melon balls onto the ice, a simple but refreshing pud.  Conversation flowed, fireflies flitted from bush to bush, it was the wee small hours when I finally got home to bed.

This morning another beautiful day, warm sun, light breeze, the swimming pool is 30˚c

Che Bella Bellaugello!
