Lots and Lots of Food!

August 24, 2012

My goodness, do Italians know how to eat!!  Our meals at the villa have been unbelievable thanks to our native Umbrian cooks!  The ladies surprise us nightly with multiple course meals (usually 4) and everything has been just splendid!  They always are sure to give me gluten free dishes when possible 🙂

Although the picture doesn’t do it justice, this pasta was to die for!  It was rice pasta (pasta rizo) with a creamy truffle sauce.  The sauce was divine…the truffle came through spectacularly!

My little buddy 🙂

Hubby and I became excellent scavengers for lunch time.  Our dinners were so massive that we had trouble even finishing the leftovers the next day for lunch!  This was my version of a kitchen sink salad: fried egg, caprese, a traditional italian salad and some leftover veal.  Delish!  Our meals were like this daily at lunch time, and on especially hot days, we cooled off with a refreshing Pimms 🙂  Our days have been so relaxing!  We start the day off with either a jog or a mini Crossfit workout (I bought a high-speed jump rope and brought it on the trip), followed by a dip in the pool (or yoga class…that was great!), a little nap, then a nice veggie based lunch and a day trip around 4 PM every day.

Lots of yummy wine (vin)!

Amazing cheese board!

The cured meats we’ve had have been delectable!

I have so much to write about and we’ve seen so much I can barely keep up!  The pictures are in the hundreds and just sorting through them takes over an hour…I promise I’ll try to post a bit here and there, but this can’t be done daily 🙂 Not if I want to relax a bit as well!

Ciao!
