Southern cookin, Tuscan style


I have been so lucky to have this oportunity... to share my southern style of cookin in a Tuscan kitchen. My friend Gail of Gail's Great Escapes has invited me to spend 2 weeks cooking in this fabulous kitchen.
It is a little challenging, no microwave, a tempermental gas stovetop that I am not used to... it is hard to figure out the temperature. Other than that I am in hog heaven.

The garden right out the door is full of basil, rosemary, sage (or salvia), and a full vegetable garden with squash, tomatoes, lettuce and artichokes. Just walking through with my coffee in the morning is a rush of pleasure. It is lovingly tended by Evo, who has promised to come to our party this Thursday.

I have brought several recipes from home. I am cooking for the next 2 groups coming to the villa. I will have to post photos when I am home again, or when I use my laptop. I brought some WhistleStop marinade along with me for the Lemon-caper chicken, and the Rosemary pork tenderloin.

No one will leave hungry!
Ciao y'all!
Sandi
