After a morning jolt of cappuccino and sugar, we head off to the nearby Sant' Ambrogio Market to buy some food items for tonight's stay-at-home dinner
Also enclosed within the market is a small restaurant called Trattoria da Rocco. They offer a daily selection of various pasta, meat, and vegetable dishes as well as fresh salads and desserts, all to eat in or take away. We decide to eat in and try the roasted chicken, roasted potatoes, baked eggplant, and mixed salad. Not bad for around $25 for three of us, including wine! For the rest of the afternoon, the girls head back toward the leather market at San Lorenzo while Ron wanders back to the apartment to drop off the groceries and catch up on some blogging. The girls are very successful (what would you expect!) in their shopping efforts, especially Kaylan. She was able to finalize a deal on a stylish leather jacket with a rather good looking shopkeeper who called her "Shakira". They had fun doing the deal and Kaylan ended up with a very fine tailored jacket!
We reconvene for the evening at Bar Mingo with some sweets that the girls picked up along the way home and then head upstairs to start supper. The fresh pasta with sausage, tomatoes, and cheese makes for a delicious, satisfying meal. Tomorrow is a new day of adventures!
