A Tuscan Experience

BlogHer Original Post

Tomato Agrodolce by What's for lunch, Honey?Meeta from the (German? Indian? Citizen of the World?) food blog What's for lunch, Honey? thinks back as she cooks.

She especially remembers a trip to the city of Florence:"... [now five-year old son] Soeren was due in a few months ... [the trip] was Tom's birthday present to me ... fulfilling a wish I had had since I was 16, to celebrate my 30th in Florence. ... The Italians are a warm and generous folk and being 6 months pregnant, I was always smiled upon whenever I walked into a store or a restaurant. People even put out their cigarettes when we took a table next to them ... The older nonnas, usually sitting on benches enjoying watching their grandchildren playing, would nod their heads, almost in approval."
