Blood oranges

We got these from Natoora at the Spa Terminus market. They’re Sicilian and so very nicely sweet and citric!

I must have been five years old the first time I encountered a blood orange “in the wild”. I was tasked with helping to make orange juice at home, and blood oranges are not always very obviously bloody from the outside. When I cut the orange and I found the “blood” I immediately panicked, thinking I had cut myself!

I started yelling and calling for help. Obviously my mum was very alarmed, but she quickly determined that it was all fine; I hadn’t cut myself and the orange was “normal”, but I still drank that juice with lots of suspicions 🤔

A bit of a belated post as I left this in the drafts but forgot to finish it before we went on holidays last month!

This is my inaugural post on the Places to eat category: sharing places where we (unsurprisingly) like to eat!

In need of comforting food in a cosy environment? Polpetto is a safe bet… specially during these cold spells we’re having lately.

  

Calamari and meatballs…

… Broccoli and pine nuts salad, potatoes with olives, gnocchi…

The syrup chunks on this crême were a touch too thick for my tastes, though!

This polenta cake was very nice.

Not pictured: their negronis, which beat their aperol spritz. Always go negroni here.
