Truffle Treat!

The real thing! Simona and Marco had sent over some things from Italy like spices, olive oil, pesto sauce,cheeses, salami, you know, yummy stuff! They also brought 2 black truffles with them! Oh what a treat! I probably would have never even tasted that if not for them! We had a lot of authentic Italian meals, but this was such a treat!!! Wow!
Marco grating truffles.

Simona stirring spaghetti.


Ah, so delicate.



And the wine, Cru di Vin chardonnay. It has a Golden retriever on the lable. When you purchase from them 10% of the proceeds goes to fighting canine cancer.
Wow, what a treat!
