The Italian Grocery Store

 I left early this morning to run to my favorite Italian grocery store to stock up on things I needed.  I bought some balsamic vinegar and some red wine.  When I am using it to make salad dressings, I buy Colavita.  It's a good quality at a good price.

 I buy olive oil by the gallon.

 I had to supplement my homegrown basil with theirs to make pesto.  Though I have planted 8 basil plants, they can't keep up with my cooking.  We eat a lot of basil in season.

 I bought some local fresh eggs and some good tuna packed in oil.  I'll show you soon what I am making with these.

 We eat a lot of these Queen Anne cherries when they are in season.

 An assortment of olives. My life revolves around olives and pickles.

 My favorite cheese is finally in season.  If you can find Graskaas cheese, give it a try.

Imported Provolone, freshly grated Parmesan and Bocco  in olive oil with basil and tomatoes.
