More Tastes of Italia

Sunday gave us time to make and enjoy another great dinner. Brad is really enjoying cooking together. He chops, grates, stirs, sautees, kneads, and basically does whatever task I ask of him to help me get several things done at the same time. We started with prosciutto and melon (Brad had some, and I decided to save mine for my lunch at work on Monday).

We had a yummy spinach salad with peaches and pine nuts with a peachy dressing.

Our entree was risotto with sausage, carrots and sage.

Dessert was a Florentine Cheese Tart.

We ended the meal with a hoarded bottle of Brachetto di Acqui. We have two bottles left! It is SO refreshing in this heat!

I had an astoundingly good lemon risotto Saturday night, and it was a wedding, so it had been made en masse for 150 people, so it can't be a touchy dish.

The other surprisingly good thing was the onions in the antipasto. Two kinds, one similar to my recipe in the SlowTrav cookbook, the other a very tasty version of cipolle agrodolce... I detected garlic in them.

Remember to save room for Italy!

Hi Palma! It was great meeting you and Brad in Assisi. Must have been the week for risotto as I made it, too, but to be eaten cold...it's still hot over here!

I've nominated you for a Schmooze Award! :)

Palma - it looks wonderful. So what are you making next May - is it planned out yet? LOL

I wish I had more Brachetto di Acqui. My tiny bottle will have to be saved for something really special.
