Studying Italian

We were off on a homework assignment last night in the old medieval city of Certaldo. We walked the narrow cobblestone streets and and a glass or two of a lovely Chianti in an outdoor alley way. Rick introduced me to a tasty cocktail - Negroni. We went into a nice little museum that had some really killer handles. It was just like I had planned this evening of homework. Then to discuss our homework we headed to a very nice restaurant were supper started with meat, cheese, tomatoes, olive oil and bread. This of course was complimented with some lovely Chianti.  Just when you thought you had already eaten dinner the mushroom pasta arrived. Then just about at the point your eyes were starting to cross came the chocolate tarte and the expresso. Not sure if it was the wine talking or not but the group is talking about a reunion. It is a really good group and the morning critiques have been really awesome. Everyone is feeling very comfortable in their own skin. The pots are really moving along nicely.
