A place for me to talk about cooking, travel, and more.

Our Tuscany trip was over a month ago, now, but I'm just getting around to sharing these pics. We stayed at an agriturismo (farmhouse, sometimes B&B accomodations), but since it was off-season, the restaurant wasn't open, so they recommended one. We still got to enjoy some time sitting outside, watching the kids play among the olive orchards and vineyards. That was the kids' favorite part of the trip by far.
Following are pics of the restaurant we ended up eating at. My husband and I shared an antipasto platter, and then we skipped the primi piatti (meaning "first plate, follows the antipasto and is usually pasta) and went straight for the secondi piatti of our choosing: a huge platter filled with the specialty of the region- Grilled Tuscan Meat with roasted potatoes. It was very good and something we don't usually do (eat tons of meat). But we ended up sharing quite a bit of it around the table, which was good. The kids had delicious pizza. (I'll share pics of Florence and Pisa later, in another blog post.)
