What, No sunflowers?
You did not think
I would make it home
without a coffee break, did you?
sitting on a leisurely Saturday morning
outdoors of a restaurant called "La Salvia" ("The Sage") -
offering cuisine from the Karst region around
the Italian port city of Trieste
and its Slovenian counterpart -
dreaming about an "Estate Bollente",
a "Sizzling summer" by the sea,
a cooling breeze caressing you!
I was pondering for a moment
to pack my camera in
and follow suit!
Is this gentleman
ready to bike all the way
to the coast?
This one stopped for coffee
before heading home with
I spotted one last sunflower,
hiding on top of the slate board
announcing the price for
the sweet local apricots:
2.2 lbs for 2.40 Euro,
what a bargain!
I started dreaming of
dainty dumplings filled with apricots -
simmered just so the fruit
would literally melt on your tongue -
rolled in golden toasted breadcrumbs
and drizzled with the tiniest bit of caramel.
Imagine the fragrance
released the moment
you pierce it on the plate
with your fork!
and sweet desserts
to all of you!

Summer sunflowers in Vienna.....brings back memories of my anniversary trip with my husband to Europe. He bought me sunflowers from a little flower shop in Vienna and we kept them in our cabin as we cruised up the Danube and the Rhine. Beautiful flowers bringing back beautiful memories. Thank you, Merisi!

Sweet, sunny, and succulent! At first I thought the restaurant you mentioned was named "Saliva"! Wouldn't be inappropriate.ReplyDelete
