Three Word Thursday


Our neighbor's olive- oil:












(Yes, this was harvested last fall but we just ran out of our previous oil and picked up a new five liters of this gorgeous olive oil from our neighbor. Can olive oil be beautiful? It tastes of the earth and trees and sun of this place and carries their combined color. I can feel it making my heart healthy and happy.
p.s. These words don't count since they're in parenthesis!)

    1. Regarding Italian cuisine- me too! My Honey took a week long cooking school in Tuscany and loves to cook Italian dishes. I do nothing but encourage him and delight in his meals!

  6. I guess parentheses are a little like calories not counting when you don't sit down? I love olive oil, and to think of having homemade? I can almost taste it.
