I hope you’ll forgive my absence- I’ve just returned from six sun-drenched days and five peaceful nights spent on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Well, “just” is a little dishonest. I returned on Saturday, but am easing myself back into regular life slowly. A part of me still feels far away; I can no longer smell the ocean or feel the sun on the back of my neck, but my tanned limbs and indolent mood remain. While I couldn’t remain in Italy forever, at least I can close my eyes and let my memories transport me back there.
Organizing these memories into a concise and coherent blog post proves difficult, and the idea of getting back to recipe-posting inconceivable for the time being. Don’t worry, I’m hardly starving, but in my current state of mind even boiling water feels like effort. I hope you can wait a little longer to get back to our regularly scheduled programming, and I’d like to sweeten the deal. Over the next few days, come on a visual and gastronomic journey through Southern Italy with me instead?
Tomorrow: the beauty of the buffet breakfast.
