We have been immensely enjoying Italian foods since we arrived here. Now, after two weeks I think I’m craving for something else. Two weeks of pasta, pizza and gelato plus great pastries and other bakery goods equals at least 3 pounds added to my weight. That is just an estimate by the way, it can be more hehe.
This huge slice of spinach pizza was ordered by my husband. In fact, he ordered 4 slices, thinking he was going to get just the ordinary sized slice. When it was handed to him, he was shocked to see the size. We wound up throwing away one slice, as it was just too much to eat in one sitting.
4.90 euros for a can of Coke. Only in Florence!
As we tour around and see food items in the stores, I can’t help but consider shipping back to New York a box full of Italian goodies. Olive oils, pastas in different varieties, lemon sodas, wines as well as packaged sweets are the ones I’m eyeing. My husband is open to my idea. Now I wonder how I will go about in securing one of those shipping boxes. We have four luggage in tow, but there is no way we can pack these food items in our luggage considering the weight restriction.
