A Colledimezzo Afternoon

I’ve mastered the crazy French robot called Cookeo and it has become one of my favorite things in the kitchen! Salmon steaks were cooked to perfection in 3 minutes.
After lunch we sat in the piazza with friends, enjoying an Aperol Spritz outside while the weather still allows. Intended to be there 30 minutes, an hour tops…turned into quite a long afternoon. So much fun to improve my Italian language conversing with the local folks. Pio brought us a couple of slices of pizza each, fresh from his oven, dessert from Stefano as he placed bunches of the sweetest grapes I’ve ever eaten on our table, straight from his vine. Vincenzo gave us eggs collected from his hens.
I’ve never in my life been surrounded by such kind, generous, caring folks. Coledimezzo afternoons are such a pleasure.
