A Special Treat Tonight!



Tonight Motorcycle Al is on the road......I am celebrating the moment of not having to prepare a dinner for us this evening.... Hooray! I do enjoy a break now and then. As you can see, for me it is light and sweet! It is simple and easy to prepare, but the ingredients must be of optimum quality.....Fresh cheese, tomatoes, spinach, a few slices of prosciutto and I am a happy camper. Our Florida mellons are in season now, so what better time to enjoy one-dolce mellon. All I need to complete this simple feast is a splash or two of my sisters favorite balsamic vinegar. She travels to Italy several times a year to stock up....and she is well stocked! This product comes from the Chianti region, south of Florence. It is produced by a small family in business for many years . If anyone is interested in trying a bottle, email me. I will get her to mail you a bottle.
Also, I have changed my format, thanks to Madeline.....she can be found on my side bar.

And one of my favorite ways to eat, all of the best foods on one plate. I hope you had a nice wine with that!
