My Europe Vacation in Food Pictures!
Here ya go, food pictures! I’ll apologize for the lack of photo quality here and a little sloppy photoshop work, but maybe you can get the idea. I took an idea from Erin at Until You Tri - where she made a collage of trip pictures. I thought I’d do the same to
lesson the boredom make things more interesting. Here goes.
This is the tomato themed picture. Clockwise from top left – bruschetta (the best I’ve ever had, a tomato, a olive tepanade and an artichoke something were the 3 varieties – and the bread was fantastic), a tomato soup (so thick and yummy – seriously like sauce in a bowl), swordfish with tomatoes, grapes and pine nuts (awesome), pizza with corn and tomatoes (sweet and yummy), and then a flatbread with tomatoes and mozzarella (I may still be dreaming about this one). These were some of my favorites. I loved the tomatoes in Italy, they were like candy.
Main dishes: clockwise starting at top left: a pistachio pasta, seafood pasta, grilled veggies (we had this in many forms at different restaurants – all a little different and all good), prosciutto and brie pizza (my favorite pizza of the trip) and squid ink pasta (good, interesting).
Clockwise from top left: Croque Monsieur (I loved how it was usually only 1 piece of bread – yes, we had this multiple times), my breakfast in Italy, Onion soup in Paris (I guess it’s not French Onion soup there), and then breakfast in Paris (our hotel had the best croissants, I may have had seconds
or thirds most mornings). I wish I captured the Italian fruit better – at least at the hotels it was better in Italy.
Don’t you love that most pictures have a glass (or 2) of wine in them as well?
Easily the best meal of the trip (and maybe one of my most favorite meals ever). In Florence, La Giostra (means the Carousel). Clockwise from top left: appetizers (don’t remember what everything is), pasta course: yummy mushroom pasta and the BEST brie ravioli (although it looked more like tortellini) I’ve ever eaten; main course – steak with porcini mushrooms, and the other appetizer (so I collaged out of order) – beef prosciutto that was fantastic.
Here’s the restaurant – You must go there if you go to Florence.
And finally – our grocery obsession. You saw the Paris store already. The top picture in this group is a fruit stand on the street in Rome. Cool, huh? The bottom is in a little neighborhood store in Paris. The berries were so pretty. I bought a box of those berries on the far right – they looked like a combo between grapes and pomegranate. They were tangy and different, oh, and they cost 4 Euro – $5.80. Probably not worth it, but fun anyway. I was told they were from the Netherlands.
Okay, I’ll stop here. Is anyone still awake? Are you hungry yet?
There will be more pictures… maybe I’ll spread them out. The sightseeing pictures aren’t nearly as interesting as the food pictures
