during the last 10days of break down of my pc, the WHB went into it's 4th year.
that's fantastic..and I'm very happy to be part of this event from time to time! :))
I agree with Kalyn...the new logo is lovely!! green is my favorite colour! :)
this week we are hosted by Haalo from Cook (almost) anything al least once
she's is also the one that now maneges this event,
an event started by Kalyn from Kalyn's kitchen.
Thank's so much, both of you!
more information about the WHB here:
I was in Florence for 3 days last week, staying at my dear friend Tatiana's place.
She lives with her mother, Luana..a great woman, widow since she was just 40, and since
then growing her 3 doughters all alone.
always with a smile on her face, always ready to help, always read to...cook! :))
one of Tatiana's sister, Pina also lives in the neiberhood, together with her husband Max and her son Maurizio.
I had a great fun together with Tatiana's family...
you can't even immagine all the tasty things I eat! and the quantity! :))
got back home 2kg more! :))))
Pina and Max are great gardeners, growing all sorts of vegetables, all sorts of fruits..
and of course olives!
I've learned a lot from them, just listing to all information the could give my...
I felt like a sponge! :)))
I came back with one salvia plant and two persimonn plants!!
there's nothing like a plant as a gift, don't you think?
makes me happier than any other gift.
now it is to late in the year to plant them, so I keep them in pots very close to the house
and go have a chat everyday, to be sure they are allright. :))
this is Max's way of putting away olives.
it is a very very simple way and you will
have fresh olives for more than two years (if you make a lot of them, that is :)))
Max's homemade salted olives
choose big fresh black olives
(even bigger than the ones in the photo
Ivy's Kalamata olives would be perfect ;)
put them in a jar and cover with salt.
be sure all olives are perfectly covered.
put in a dark place.
check the jar every day, pour out the liquid that forms and add salt if necessary.
when you see the olives are all wrinkled and dry.
toss away the salt and put back in the jar.
Max, Pina, Luana and Tatiana eats the olives as appetizer, but for my they are to salted.
I use them in cooking, where I found them perfect.
I wish you all a nice new November week.
here on the most charming lake in Italy :))) The Garda Lake, it is raining...
and that means that it is snowing on our lovely mountain...
yesterday I went up there...
the snow was perfect, until the fog rose and wrapped up all
the scenary..and melted it down.
