Our friends, Mr. & Mrs. Italo, are on vacation in his hometown of Rome. He has been sending daily photos….of the food…not of monuments or people…the true mark of a foodie.

Today’s image came with a couple of qualifying remarks:

“Sacrilege….[but] actually delicious”.

Coming from a self-admitted espresso aficionado, high praise indeed. My reply to his email: “More important is why did you go in? I would have thought the golden arches would be your equivalent of the cross to a vampire?”
