We are visiting my beautiful great aunt Carol in Sixes, Oregon on the coast. She travels to the coolest places. She has been to Italy many times.
Tonight we set out a spread of chocolate and ciabatta and cheese from a local restaurant for an appetizer. Then for dinner we had the most beautiful simple salad. Mixed greens with pumpkin seeds, craisins, dried olives, Parmesan, mandarin orange slices, and the most beautiful pure olive oil and balsamic. The olive oil was from my aunt’s friend in Italy. It was the best meal I have eaten with great people.
