Welcome to Italy

I’ve had a fun week cooking some great foods. The highlights of this week were actually a pasta and ice cream. A light breeze from Italy.

I once again got a new number of the Gloria Ruoka&Viini (Gloria Food&Wine) magazine and they had a recipie for popcorn ice cream. This was of course a must! Ice cream machines have been pop for the past year but somehow I just don’t really care for them. It sounded fun but after making handmade ice cream, I have totally lost intrest in any of these machines. There is just something about ‘handmade ice cream’.

Note! The popcorn ice cream did actually taste like popcorn but in a lovely and suttle way. It was a delightful surpise and pretty easy to make as well.

The pasta actually came a few days later. We have lately gathered every sunday evening with my family and my parents to eat something good. Today I decided to whip up one of my favorite pasta, bacon and spinach pasta with a poached egg. Yummy is the word to use here.

I can’t wait to eat something good again but not tonight.
