Thanks to Terri, the lady from California who was with us on the truffle hunt adventure, I now have pictures of more of the food. I didn't get any of these because my camera batter had died. I had been thinking about contacting Jane because I had her e-mail address (didn't have Terri's) but I didn't want to be a bother so hadn't done it yet, but I was really wishing I had a more complete memory of what Gabriella made and served for our dinner. So here are three more pictures to round out the story.
So having Terri send me all this is really wonderful. I want to try a couple of these things myself and now know for sure what's what and it was fun to relive it all again. So a big thank you to Terri!
And I told my sister when we talked today - I dreamed last night I was back in Italy and was so stunned and excited to be back so soon...so it's nice to know I've absorbed enough of Italy that I can now dream about it. :)

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
