After being out of town for a few days, we wanted to visit some of our favorites spots. This of course started with the Central Market of San Lorenzo. We bought some fresh produce and some fresh pasta to have for dinner with some leftover bolognese I had in the freezer. The fresh pasta stand is so incredible. They cut the tagliatelle to order, and enough pasta for three generous portions only cost €1.80!
We then went to our favorite seafood stand for lunch. After several visits, we have learned not to bother with the prawns, anchovies, or french fries. We just go straight calamari and baccala (cod). This is definitely a place we will all miss when we return home!
So this was the day before the Kanye West and Kim Kardashian wedding in Florence. They were getting married up the street from our old apartment, so I admit we decided to use this as an excuse to wander around our old neighborhood to potentially see some action (we didn’t). While wandering around we decided to stop into one of our old favorite wine shops (Il Panino del Chianti) for an afternoon snack before heading home, putting Emily to bed and cooking our fresh pasta for dinner.
