It’s What I Ate Wednesday! On our latest gustatorial adventure, Steve and I went on a romantic trip to Verona, Italy, for Valentine’s weekend. It’s been made famous by Shakespeare, of course, but it also has some unique foods to offer. I think basically everyone in the world can appreciate Italian cuisine, so I hope these pictures will do it justice!
The Italians are not extravagant breakfast eaters. In much of Europe, you’ll find cheeses, cold cuts, bread, jams, jellies, honey, etc., etc., etc., but not in Italy! Coffee and perhaps a pastry should last one until lunch! But our suite provided us with plenty to help us fill up after our morning runs, and of course, there is always pizza:
If breakfast is small, then luncheon is large! We don’t always stop for lunch because we like to have a large breakfast to last us most of the day. But Verona is so small and walkable, we didn’t mind stopping to dine midday.
We may have eaten a big lunch most days, but we also walked an average of 26,000 steps per day! So we ate quite a large dinner most nights as well. Do you happen to notice a theme here? We really like pizza!
Sweets and Snacks
You know I can’t resist a sweet, and Valentine’s Day tends to come with a lot of sweet opportunities!
