I'm delighted to be able to tell you that "my poet", Antonio Lonardo, now has a blog. Do go over and say "hello" - he'll like it.

Antonio and Carla invited me to lunch today:

Antipasti of this year's olives, marinated artichokes and gherkins - all patiently prepared and preserved by Carla.

Spaghetti with Carla's tomato sauce

and a main course of polpette, salsiccia and courgettes which Carla had cooked slowly in olive oil with some chopped tomatoes, capers, parsley, garlic and seasoning.

Roast chestnuts and grapes to finish and then it was time for work.

Grazie, Antonio e Carla.

After a meal of that size, WHO can go to work. If there was any wine involved, I'd be finished!

I have sworn never to eat spaghetti ever again after a highly inconvenient incident with someone I barely knew and the strands being too long, constantly falling off my fork and tomato sauce flicking everywhere!!

Sounds like such a lovely occasion and the food looks delicious :-)

I bet the salsiccia would have been good.

Hi, Anne. He doesn't speak English but I see you've got it translated now. x Hi, Bev. Well, somehow I managed it! It was, Sally. Hi, GLeds. There's no elegant way of eating spaghetti! Hi, Cherie. Yes, it was both. Hi, James. It was excellent.
