This is the post I've been waiting for!
Yummy Italian food.
Some as expected, and some very, very different, but all delicious!
Enjoy this feast for your eyes (and for our tummies)...and I'm sorry if you're reading this at 11am!
We made a point to have gelato at least once a day. I won't mention how many days we had it more than once--just that I'm still blaming my post-wedding weight on it!
The wine and cappuccinos were flowing like water...we had vino della casa with every meal, and a cappuccino after!
My seafood disliking husband and I compromised on seafood and ordered a platter of fried fish.
It was kind of disturbing.
the eyeballs! the scales!
E closed his eyes held his breath and ate the calamari and left the rest for me.
I was a good sport about it. Just stop staring at me, fishy!!
Ribollita (YUM) and more pasta carbonara for my less-adventurous husband :-)
I never noticed all the animal patterns on these plates!
Beef Braciola with boiled potatoes. *sigh*
Husband ordered essentially chicken fingers and chips.
Salad and Bruschetta
couldn't go to Europe without trying my first doner kebob!
Bakeries, Markets, and Delis:
central market in Florence
Obviously, I didn't take photos of every single meal we ate....but the food wasn't as much of a highlight as I had anticipated it would be. I wish we had been more prepared to read the menus and select restaurants! We never got terribly adventurous because we weren't quite sure what we were ordering most of the time.
My favorite meal of the honeymoon is the only one not included here, because it deserves a post of its own. And for anyone who is utterly sick of Italy...not to worry! I've determined to keep our honeymoon posts to less than 15.
Which means April= recaps!! (and I'm not foolin') ;-)
