It is sweet for me to end the day by stopping by my local grocery and choosing something wonderful to make for dinner at home. There I sip a glass of chianti and gaze across the Arno at the Uffizi. With white and red candles lit around my home, it a lovely way to spend an evening.
Last night I found this amazing confection in the fresh pasta department:
The package describes the pasta as “pasta fresca all’uovo con ripieno e caramelle fatte a mano con ricotta e spinace.” In English: “fresh egg pasta, handmade in the shape of a candy with a filling of ricotta and spinach.” Delicious!
I also purchased a container of sugo con carne, red sauce with minced beef, and came home and had a beautiful dinner in less than 10 minutes. I doctored the sugo up with some tomato sauce, red wine, and a few herbs. I can’t resist playing with my food.
For dessert, I enjoyed the local clementines. A perfect meal!
And wait, there’s more: While that was already the perfect day, a few hours later I bundled up and walked to a new yoga studio for a late evening class. On my way home, I bumped into a classmate from school.
Perfection! I love that I can be a yoga 10 minutes after leaving my apartment!
