Tonight was the night. I finally had some decent sized chicken breasts (the first one I bought looked like a turkey breast - huge!!) and had decided I was going to chance it and wrap up my chicken roll in Saran Wrap rather than the special "paper" Gabriella had used for the wonderful meal she prepared for us (see my report on the truffle hunt adventure). I found that paper on line and would need to come up with all sorts of recipes that could use it because cheap it is not!
So, really, the pictures I took can speak for themselves pretty much although of course, I will add my two cents. :)
If anyone decides they want to try some truffle products, I would strongly recommend buying them from an Italian supplier. I've purchased truffle salt and truffle oil here in the states and there's simply no comparison between those and what I purchased in Italy.

- 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.
