From my mountains...

I was in Italy in spring, enjoying the flowers in the mountains, and the village fairs. After Easter there is this game in Fanano, coccetto, where you try to crack your opponent eggs (hard boiled and painted). Great fun for the children, and the adults!

 Walking in the countryside builds appetite!

Had my favourite, tortelloni, while my brother had cannelloni and my sister in law gnocchetti with cheese and aceto balsamico. Plus we shared some fried veggies (with lots of fried artichokes).

The village of Fanano

A view of the Libro Aperto (open book) mountains

Staples at home: bread, parmigiano and lambrusco


Found a few mushrooms, not enough for a meal, but with a few zucchini enough to dress a plate of pasta

The garden is actually a wood with wild flowers

Sestola, my village

After a pizza they gave us free limoncello... tons of it!!
