Cooking up an authetic Italian storm

... We then set it aside to rest and started with the sauces, nice and simple as with everything that's good! Not to mention the fact that all the ingredients came from the garden, and most of them we had to go and get ourselves! A tomato and eggplant sauce for the pasta, and a zucchini and thyme sauce for the gnocchi - the next job.

Sauces made, we got back to the gnocchi - potatos were already boiled, we only had to mash them with a little of the local olive oil and then it ...

... us down. It was bliss. Just sheer unadulterated X rated bliss.

Lyn, meanwhile, is not a sun bunny. He relaxed by the Dub, after tidying up. He spent the day chilling, reading and sleeping. He did come to see us for half an hour, but immediately headed to the water to cool down. He and Tegz swam out to the floating pontoon, and sunbathed on there, cooling down in the water.

Fortunately the weather started out well, so despite the odd spot of rain, there was little or no wind, and jumpers were enough to keep us comfortable! ...

... while Lyn did all the outside work, then when Tegz and I were all showered the Dub was ready, he could nip down the shower warm up then jump in the van and drive off. Lyn did all this in pouring rain and everything went into white recycling bags, to dry out in the arid air and heat of southern Italy !



He managed to easily get the Dub off the soaking grass, whilst doing a 3 point turn (many cars were getting stuck but we have 4 ...
