THREE GOOD THINGS

The fruit seller who calls me "bambina" called from his lorry that he was "giving away" oranges this morning.  By that he meant, of course, that they were especially cheap but I was determined to resist - until, that is, I saw one word on the crates:  "vaniglia".  Sicilian vanilla oranges really do taste of vanilla and everyone should try one before they die.


Later slabs of Valgrana cheese from Piemonte were on offer in the supermarket and what better to go with one than cotognata [quince paste]?  A marriage made in heaven.

Cotognata, a lost memory. Vanilla oranges, a new one for me. What a world we live in, windows to every corner of the world. Better than any thing we could have imagined as children.

Ciao, Arlene. They are! Grazie. Hi, lakeviewer. The vanilla oranges alone are a reason to visit Sicily! Yes, we could never have imagined the internet when young.
