I have pretty much been making Spaghetti with Pomodoro sauce since I arrived, when I have eaten at all, but I am finally well enough to start making some “real” food. Today was breaded chicken cutlets Marsala with fresh sage and thyme. The herbs are from my kitchen garden. The lightly sautéed spinach is from my Winter garden. I had a glass of Pinot Chardonnay Prosecco. It was a perfect early dinner.
Before I started cooking, I took a picture of the view from my front porch. It started snowing in the Maiella mountains. Perhaps we will have a normal winter after all. That will be really good for my olive harvest next year. This year was not very good, between a unseasonably warm winter last year, heavy pruning in the spring and heavy rains during the summer and fall.
My flu or cold or whatever it is, is about three quarters better. Not quite there yet though… I’m still taking those fizzy things that I was given at the Farmacia although I have no idea if they’re working. More on being sick in a small Italian village soon.
