This morning I planned our menu for the week, made a grocery list, actually tackled WalMart (big mistake, being halloween) and threw in a jar of calamata olives for my salad.
While the potatoes were baking I sat down to read a few blogs and was fascinated by Mary's post of harvesting olives.
How many people get to harvest olives?
How many of us even know how it is done?
You must pay Mary a visit at Journey into Elderhood. One year after retiring she moved to Italy with her husband. While learning a new language and a new culture she shares her experiences, so graciously with us on her blog. As I enjoyed my salad, I thought of Mary and her journey in Italy and how much I enjoy reading of her everyday life in this glorious country!
The salad was so good. I made honey balsamic vinaigrette, going light on the evoo and it was yummy!
