Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-my hometown! On a recent visit, my husband and I took a little culinary tour in the city’s Strip District. During our afternoon adventure, our mission was to purchase a large quantity of grape leaves for my husband’s specialty of stuffed grape leaves, which he prepares with freshly ground lamb and rice. Well, we purchased the grape leaves, and a large amount of Italian Biscuits for my Tiramisu dessert. Then, we were free to travel the streets!
- Next stop,
The Pennsylvania Macaroni Company
- on Penn Avenue. For a moment, in this Italian specialty store, I thought I was in heaven! As we enjoyed the tour and the shopping of Italian pastas, cheeses, meats, fresh vegetables, dried beans, spices, and the olives, the little girl emerged in excitement, as I reminisced of another place in time shopping with my grandmother for these wonderful Italian specialties. It was a moment and an afternoon of pure JOY!
After our culinary tour, I stopped and bought some beautiful flowers from the street vendor for my mother.
I wish you a day in creating joy and beauty…
