The Best Package Came in the Mail Finally!

We survived the hurricane! Thankfully we only lost power for a few hours. Our parents weren't as fortunate though. My parents still don't have power and my in-laws had a huge tree come down that crushed their deck. It could have been much worse, so we are quite fortunate. How is everyone else doing?

On the sunny side of things...
We ordered wine and truffle oil from the Torciano winery that we went to in Tuscany and it finally came in the mail the other day!

 These bottles were a bit pricey so we are saving them for special occassions.
This is the truffle oil that we had at the winery with our lasagne. It was amazingly delicious! I have a new love for truffles after visiting Italy.
 This is some of the balsamic vinegar and marsala wine that we carried home with us in our luggage.
My mother-in-law got us this huge pasta bowl in Assisi.

I just love looking at all of the things in our kitchen right now that remind me of Italy. There's nothing like cooking with the marsala wine, dried basil, cheese, or balsamic vinegar (that we bought in Italy) at home in my own kitchen. I love making those dinners that take us back and give us a "taste" of Italy all over again.
I just can't wait to go back!
