BEING LOOKED AFTER









My wonderful friends here are in touch every day, run me around for shopping and various medical appointments and are conspiring to feed me up, reader!

At Gina's last Sunday there were these lovely ravioli, filled with sweetened ricotta and cooked in a pork sauce, then various meats cooked in the same sauce, followed by these crispelle di riso from which the honey was just dripping. The other day, also at Gina's, I was treated to pasta with dried porcini and frittata with salad. There were also slices of freshly cooked pumpkin [not shown] seasoned with chilli pepper.

Linda brought around some comforting pasta al forno she had cooked and on Saturday night Marco and Giovanna turned up with plates of focaccia, arancini and pasticci [pies, meat ones in this case].

Gina has also managed to get me to Raffaele the hairdresser's, for sitting around being ill is one thing; but sitting around being ill with your roots showing is quite another!

I am with you on the "roots" issue! Looking good always makes you feel good!

That food looks beyond delectable! It's so nice to hear of people in the world behaving in a compassionate manner - it gives me hope.

You keep on looking good and feeling good!

Wow that is a veritable feast Welshcakes...you'll soon put on your lost weight at this rate. What a lucky lady you are to have such wonderful friends...I'm so glad they are looking after you so well.
I was just about to make a chilli con carne for dinner, but now I fancy pasta...Hmm...back to the freezer..Then, DT does like chilli so, I guess I'll do some pasta tomorrow.

Absolutely, dragonstar, on both counts. Thanks, James. Simi and I are working on it! Hi, flutterby. Well, she has had lots of visits from all her Sicilian aunties and uncles! Thanks, jmb and cherrypie. Almost, WW! Yes, I am very lucky, Sally. I do feel for you. Totally agree, Lady M. Thanks, Trubes - decisions, decisions! Hi, Saretta. Yes, it helps a lot.
