the tourist season has not yet started so, I find myself alone one the little ferry boat
"regina del Garda" - "queen of Garda"
alone 11 mar 2011

in the last 10days I've been driving along the lake from north to south, around and with the ferry across.
even in grey and cloudy days the view of the other shore is so beautiful
this is the hills behind Torri of Benaco, and in the back the last slope of Mount Baldo, coming down to end in San Vigilio at your right.

when my tourist asks me:

the perimeter 164km
max lenght 51km
max width 17km
min lenght 3km
max depth 346mt
surface 370km2

it was more or less only numbers, but now it all has another meaning.
working as a guide on the other side of the lake,
has given me so much more knowledge.
I have learned so much from the places I have visited,the path I have followed, the books I have read, listening to people I have met.

I do love this job! :-DD

I have had little time for the housekeeping, and little time and energy to cook.
even looking for recipes in one of the cook books is too tiring.

some cook book shelves

it is quicker to ask Google. :-D

I found this recipe on, Jennys potatisbakelser
quick, easy, very good!
