la spesa





"Andiamo a fare la spesa," he declares, marching out the door – Let's go grocery shopping.
My son likes to carry the wheeled cart when we walk to our neighborhood produce market.
Then of course when it's full, I always drag it back home.

    Infatti al ritorno pesa un quintale!

    Tilli~
    1/4 di zucca, fagiolini, insalatina di campo, broccoletti da ripassare in padella, minestrone, finocchi, mandarini e mele. Poi mitiche polpette di carne bianca del mio pollarolo Massimo; un filone di pane di grano duro; 12 uova del contadino; 1 litro di latte crudo; uno spicchio di formaggio Marzolino e una bottiglia di vino biodinamico Toscano. Tutto nel carrello!

  4. That can't be E! I can't fathom walking to pick up groceries, though I do have memories of such.

  6. I wish I had his enthusiasm. It's hard for me to want to go grocery shopping, but once I get there I start dreaming up meals, so it ends ok.

    Fun photo and nice neighborhood!
    (Still searching.)

    Can you believe how much he's grown? All boy in his rock 'n' roll stride and spiderman hat. Dragging a ladies' shopping cart. I can blackmail him with this when he's a teen.

  8. We don't have those over here! We're too dependent on taking our cars everywhere! You were right behind that person!

  9. Those kids, no sense of respect. I admire Europe for maintaining small neighborhood food stores. That tradition is dead here, except maybe in parts of New York City.
