Saturday's PhotoHunting: Cooking

Cooking while traveling can be quite a fun experience.  Last year I traveled to the small town of Praiano located on the Amalfi Coast of Italy and being in an apartment I was able to dab a little in the kitchen.    

First, I'm off to my favorite neighborhood store located just down the street from my apartment to buy some groceries.  My apartment had a very useful food translation guide which I took with me to make sure I was buying the right ingredients.   

The plan was to make some pasta and while standing by the sauce section, I contemplated making it from scratch, but then this local Italian lady whizzed by me, picked up two bottles of already made pasta sauce and dashed over to the cash register.  Well, that was good enough for me too, so I picked up a bottle of the same brand sauce, a package of pasta, a chicken patty and salad fixings. 

I prepare all of my pots, pans and utensils and proceed with my Amalfi Coast Cooking experience. :)

First, I boil my pasta, then I fry my chicken patty and warm up my pasta sauce . . . I prepare my salad, then popped open a bottle of Prosecco and pour . . .

Placed my entree onto my plate and voila!  I forgot to snap a photo of my salad and glass of prosecco. :)

It wasn't made from scratch but I thought it was pretty delicious and I was quite proud of myself.  Sometimes it's the little everyday experiences while traveling that can make me smile and go whoo hoo!  

And finally, the whole cooking experience wouldn't be complete without the always scintillating clean-up duties. :)

  1. Looks delicious ! I always take ready made tomatoe sauce, it's too much work to do it yourself !

    1. Hi Gattina, I'm so glad to hear you say that. I must say that it almost tasted homemade, or so I convinced myself. :)

      Thanks so much for your comments. Safe travels and enjoy Tunisia.

  2. It looks delicious, I love pasta ( and prosecco! cheers)

    1. Hi Mar, thanks so much for your comments. Pasta, Pizza and Prosecco! Yummy....Cheers to you too. :)

  3. Hi Kathy, that looks great! I see a lot of prepared sauces at the supermercati around here in Rome, so I think they're perfectly acceptable.

    And I like those plates in your apartment very much.

    1. Hi Sandra, aren't those plates the cutes. It's so cheery looking. Thanks so much for your comments. Have a wonderful evening.
