    Finally got around to gettin' back home..

    Been back for a week now, and finally got caught up on sleep, busted irrigation, winterizing stuff, and fighting a cranky router.

    Wife and I got a wild hair, decided we wanted Pizza for dinner.

    Sooo....

    We hit our favorite little place in Colle di val d' Elsa for Proscuitto di arugala.

    Still dealing with a nasty case of edema from Delta Mechanics taking 4 hours to figure out one screw, and 16 hours of flight time in 24.
    That, and there really is a dearth of good wine here in the states...don't get me started on Proscuitto and cheese...

    Good to be back.
    I'd hate to miss freezing my keester off for the next 6 months....and you guys of course.

    I assume the pizza place doesn't deliver and it wasn't take out?

    I ain't never seen a pizza look like that before, looks far to healthy for me, I want grease - that is a good indication of lots-a-meat!

    Must have been a good year for blueberries to be able to make a pizza run like that. My last pizza came out of the freezer

    Nope...
    Had to endure the insults that pass for modern air travel these days, then enjoy the Italian Train system, and finally, squeeze into a dadgum Fiat.

    The pizza in and around Modena is worth it though. Nevermind it's Truffle season.

    Nope.
    Last season was a bust like the previous three. I think we might have broke even, as long as I keep ignoring all the stuff we busted and waiting repairs.

    Been saving for this Pizza run for 5-6 years, and caught some deals on Hotels, B&B's and air fares.
    Literally, 2 weeks in Italy living it up, is cheaper than 2 weeks in Florida, and a hell of a lot more fun.
    Heck of a lot better chow and wine to boot.;)

    There's a load of Proscuitto Cotto and Culatella under the Arugala and Mozzerella di buffola.
    No grease doesn't mean no meat. It just means the meat has been properly aged for a couple years.

    Maybe this will make up for it....

    Antipasti di Mare at a little Ristorante right around the corner from hotel Diana in New Pompei, away from the Touristi magnets.
    The Swordfish simply melted on the tongue. Best part was three courses for two for under 70 bucks, including Montepulciano Nobile, and every bit up to the Michelin star ratings.
    Italy is very affordable, once ya get away from the tourist gauntlets. Locals can't afford the tourist prices.

    I prefer my pizza with anchovies on top. Most folks here in America don't realize that pizza served in Italy comes to you non-sliced, you cut it yourself with a fork and knife, well, at least that's how we got it in Napoli back in the 70's.

    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.
