Wednesday in Florence saw us rushing through more museums and historic churches in between the continuing terrible storms. We spent most of the day at the enormous Palazzo Pitti, home to a tremendous collection of art and decorative items. The storms became so severe that even when we were finished touring the museum, we remained under cover in their large courtyard, watching as torrents of rain poured down onto the ancient stonework and lightning flashed over the distant hills.
About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
