Market Lunch – Sicilian Style

Blood oranges, salami, carrots, olives, bread and cheese from the market made an easy lunch for a sunny day. lunch 0218 Market Lunch   Sicilian StyleOn my mid-morning walk I bought a roasted artichoke at the panetterria/bakery near the duomo/cathedral. A simple dipping sauce of olive oil and lemon juice made the vegetables sparkle and wedges of blood orange rounded out lunch nicely.

The fruit of a blood orange may be orange flesh splashed with dots of red or be totally garnet red.  My favorite orange juice is made from blood oranges and is nearly peppermint pink in color – but not in taste.

Siracusa Orange Juice

I am in Ortigia, an island that is part of a Siracusa. Sicily is filled with amazing cathedrals, piazzas, people and food.  Finding a way to connect to the internet has been a challenge.

We start the day with fresh orange juice made with Sicilian oranges from the open-air market that is a twenty minute walk through the Plaza Duomo, down narrow lanes, past gelatarias, cafes and ruins from the 6th century BC.

We are looking forward to being with him and his bride, Alison. There will be about forty people at the wedding and we expect to have a wonderful time sitting in cafes, eating wonderful food, exploring Suracusa and having many adventures.

I  will post if I can. If I have no internet service, know that I will have lots to share when I get home. Meanwhile, you may want to look at my earlier posts for inspiration.

Play among yourselves, have fun, eat well and don’t get into trouble.
