It's safe to say that over the last 5 weeks in Italy, food has played a vital role in my life. I was never much of a pasta-fanatic until this trip and unfortunately have a feeling that when I get back to America, I will revert back to that old habit. I am pasta-ed out. So. many. carbs. & not enough exercise really just never lead to anything good. We have tried to balance it out with salads but in reality, I have given up on the idea of attempting to eat well in Italy, and fully embraced the idea of enjoying and taking advantage of the wonderful food here while I still can. These are just a few pictures of some wonderful meals, snacks, and food related souvenirs that I have come to love and enjoy so much.
