A SPECIAL PAUSA GELATO

When my American friend Bev sent me a message this afternoon to suggest a pausa gelato, it was a delightful surprise. Although Bev and I are old blogging pals - some of you may remember her blog Romancing Italy - we had never met before and I didn't even know she was in Modica! Now here she was, on the trail of a certain Inspector Montalbano, with her beautiful dog Tala for company. As you see, special ice creams were called for:





Bev tells me she will soon be starting a new blog and I'll tell you here when she does.

Thanks for the gelato and the company, Bev and Tala.

Well the Gelato surely looks yummy to start... I hate to reveal my ignorance, but what are the black things in it after?

They look kind of likee stones, or maybe shell fish and I can't imagine it is any of those things.

How lovely!

I am gradually working my way through the Montalbano books. I find them easier to read now I've seen the television series.

Grapes, Moggsy but I do see what you mean! Hi, Liz. Glad you're enjoying those.

Your health looks much improved Welshcakes.

The ice creams look a little worse for wear ,mind. :)

Thanks, Uber. It's five years now since I was so ill. It's so hot at the moment that the ice cream melts immediately!
